Do they have any plans to expand their East Coast route network?

1. Will they ever expand their network to have routes along eastern seaboard?
2. Will they allow for multi-partner award bookings?
3. When can we start redeeming miles for SQ awards?
4. Will they ever allow redemptions to Barter island on Ravn?

How would they price multi-partner awards when each partner has their own award chart?

Considering they already allow one-ways and stopovers, my guess is that a multi-partner award would be a bad thing for us.

+1

Look at Qantas. They have different charts for different airlines, and multi-partner redemptions don't seem to be that great.

I'd guess that they're locked to BOFA, but was planning on asking.

I see the AS flights bookable on ElAl.com. Do they have plans for them to be bookable on alaskaair.com and able to earn 3ppd on their credit card?  I donít currently have their card but I (along with many other business owners who frequently travel to Israel) would get it if this were the case.

Many times that I wanted to use alaska miles for AA and BA flight and was annoyed that I couldnt. Don't think that need a new chart. Just use same miles for alaska and BA metal

You must choose one

Fine, as others are probably going to ask 1-3, I choose #4. Happy now? :-p

You can use Alaska flights and one other partner (so Alaska/Virgin flights plus BA or CX) just not Two partners on the same flight so AA plus someone else doesn't work.  If for example, you can find an AS flight NYC-SFO you could tack that on to a CX flight.

Seems everyone is too stuck in the redemption section.
Will we have a lie flat AS product?
(ETA: I see this was asked)
Another big Q we're missing is, will they book all LY routes, and B. will they book PE awards...?
Also don't ask, tell them, ditch BA YQ.

BA ain't LH.

Only way to get it without YQ is probably if your account is in some Latin American country that doesn't allow YQ nonsense.

Contracted with BOA

So point out how lucrative it would be for them to break that contract.

Is that why YQ is so much less ex TLV than from the US?  YQ from Den-TLV in First Class is $850 and only $250 from TLV-DEN and I never understood why.  Even with YQ, 80k AS for BA First is a solid redemption returning from TLV to the US.  Someone told me that the fees are way less if its a layover in LHR less than 2hrs (or some other amount of time).  I've never figured it out.
