this has been there for at least a month. Other Asian destinations price very similarly.

Great find.

Trying to replicate and I am adding HND - BKK in there, I cannot replicate.
Is that segment included in your itinerary ?

Whoa, has anybody noticed AS's new bonus rate for EK premium cabin fares? https://www.alaskaair.com/content/mi.../emirates.aspx

I have AS MVP Gold, so I believe this flight would net 50k miles, if my math is correct?

Why limit yourself? Go as far as CHC or AKL and earn 45000 tier points (5K short of Skywards Gold) or more than 70K AS miles (more than 90K if you have higher tier status). All for less than 4K EUR.
But if you ask me, CAI always was a cheap origin for premium fares and this year we definitely saw better offers on this routes. Positioning to CAI might also not be a piece of cake for some of us. Unless you fly EK so often and therefore value the status with them, you could wait for a better offer.

I understand from Lucky's blog that you don't have to fly a single mile on
Alaska metal in order to earn status with them, however, you do need more miles when using partner airlines to reach each status level.

Quote from Lucky's blog, near top of the article:

As you can see, there are different requirements depending on whether youre qualifying exclusively through travel on Alaska, or also through travel on their partner airlines. One of the best things about Alaska is the unique partner airlines they have, and how you can qualify for status with them exclusively through partner airline travel, if you want to.
Even better, if you do have top level status with any of the North American airlines, you can match to MVP Gold 75K.

I am currently re-thinking my FFP participation and might use Emirates to shuttle between Europe and Asia in 2017 instead of flying Star Alliance carriers.
That way, I can collect a ton of miles via Alaska MP to use for reward flights for friends & family the following year, after earning in 2017.

Check out Lucky's blog for more information on how to take advantage of ex-CAI Emirates fares, status matching to Alaska Mileage Plan MVP Gold 75K etc.
