+1.

And what's the real story behind the EK devaluation..

(Show them @ilherman's post..)
I'm sure that's a sensitive topic.

What's the name of that troublemaker on the emails again?  ;D

Can you add another CC transfer currency?
I'd guess that they're locked to BOFA, but was planning on asking.

They have Marriott.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Marriott is not a bank.

Sure it is but does it hurt to try?

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.

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

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

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?

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

Why are they making their business seats less pitch when everybody else is converting to lie flat

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.
