Does that work? stopover + OJ?
Unlikely.

Yes. that will make it work and itll cost 12500 avios per person extra.

The only other way it can work is if we find a short connection which won't count as a stop. I saw a few in seattle but there is no availability. I'm in no rush as these points don't expire for 4 years.

Another option is the SEA-KOA route Dan mentioned. The problem is that its not showing as bookable because takeoff is 30 minutes after landing in SEA.

Why do you think SO+OJ is permitted?

I stand corrected. One is allowed one stopover OR one open jaw.

I spoke with a rep that said both would not be a problem as long as destination city matches departure city.

Another rep just told me that this was a mistake.

Which is exactly why this is no deal for east-coasters. And it's a suspect deal even from LAX due to Avios and great AA availability to every island.

How much would it cost first class using Avios?
And does anyone know how the Alaskan first class product is?

Everyone flies domestic first from the west coast to HI.  Not something I would burn extra miles for on a 5 hour flight.
If you happen to live in OAK, SAN, or SEA then obviously this is a good deal, otherwise, not so much.

So then the price is a good deal from the west coast, at least if you want to fly first.

I don't believe anyone has said differently.

Let me know when you find an AS flight from LAX to HI ::)
I'd rather fly nonstop coach for 5 hours for just 25K Avios than drive hours or connect hours out of the way for $380 and have to deal with more limited availability just for domestic first.

Yes, if you live in SAN/OAK/SEA this is a great deal.  Other than that it's way overblown IMHO.

Last I checked, SEA/OAK/SAN are included in "the west coast."
