Alaska Air - Award Redemption in F
 
Hi there!
Was just poking around on Alaska, searching one way award tickets in First from Lihue to San Diego. Found a date with 40k award - great! Changed the search to include 4 people and now the tickets are pricing at 80k each. What's up with that? :confused:

You found a good deal, but there aren't 4 seats available in that bucket. Maybe 1 or 2. When you ask for 4, it'll look for 4 tickets all in the same bucket. The only bucket with 4 available awards is the 80k bucket

Test by checking if 2 is available. The purchase on 2 seperate encounters.

Sometimes. Just sometimes you can book one and immediately go back and book a second. Whether itís dribbling out inventory or a glitch is unclear.

Agreed and I use that method with I fares often when traveling w/colleagues, it definitely comes in handy.
