Avios to Book SEA-OGG

Hey,

Trying to book SEA-OGG using Avios for AS. When I do a search it tells me that BA or it's partners do not fly that route for 8/23/14. But when I search AS they have low availability. Any one can help?

If AS website shows reward-saver availability (or whatever Alaskan call their cheapest rate rewards), then you can call BA and book with avios.

The avios rate will be based on BA's distance charts and so not the same number as AS miles.

As it is not an online function it is probable you will be asked for 25 pp booking fee (if not a BA Gold).

You have to BA call to book AS. It can't be done online.

The fees are $5 per segment, the best part is if you need to cancel you will only lose the amount of taxes actually paid, not the $40 per flight award cancellation fee.
