How to find Alaska PNR from BA MMB?

Does anyone have any tricks or hints to help me find where the Alaska PNR for Alaska flights in my booking may be? I have tried even tried a Finnair E-Ticket receipt but none of them have it. There is no link to choose seats for the Alaska flights (unlike on AA flights, from BA MMB), and the Alaska website doesn't accept the 125 ticket number. I'm trying to select seats and check in for flights tomorrow that I have just been involuntary booked on but cannot do this without it and wondered if anyone has experienced this recently.

I rang BA and they gave me the PNR.

I'm flying right now so can't call yet. Was going to do that as a last resort tonight, should have said that.

CheckMyTrip app works for EI sectors on 125- tickets so could be worth a try. Not tried it with AS though.

They are also usually very quick to respond on Twitter if you DM them. I've done that for my last few AS PNRs when i've booked via BA - always had a prompt response.

Worked fine for me on an Alaskan flight booked through BA as an avios redemption; was then able to select a seat and pre-order food.

Checkmytrip has now become a phone-app only...So I had to use Alaska's online chat - which worked well. I don't get why BA doesn't put these partner confirmation #s on their website...What a pain to have to call the BA-Avios # just for this! Come on BA - simple things!

I just rang the gold line, got it from them. Odd that AA ones appear on MMB but AS ones dont.

Alaska's MMB won't accept the BA ticket number, but if you try (and fail) to check-in with the eTicket number > 24 hours prior to departure, it'll fail to a page that says 'It's too early to check in for your flight' with the confirmation code on the top right!

In the future you can get the AS PNR by trying to select seats. It will send you to AS but will give you the PNR.

chat function easy still. british site wasn't showing a place to select seats. got an instant upgrade (+1 guest) using avios on alaska metal with AA Ppro 80 hrs before scheduled flight. Glad that worked pretty easily!

Sounds good, but looks like it doesn't work any more. Or am I doing something wrong?

This worked for me yesterday. Use 12512345677 or whatever, not 125-12345677 and you'll see the alaska PNR top right on the "can't log in" screen.
