Hey, spent a lot of time looking for where to post this and didn't want to start a new thread so I'll try here (if someone can point me to where to ask these in the future I'd appreciate it.)
What is the best way to book reward travel in primetime 12/25-1/1? I know it's just a bad time but this is the hand we were dealt. Does anyone ever run sales ($ or points).
Again sorry if this is in wrong place or discussed at length elsewhere.

Hmm, you gotta be more specific.

And this might be a better place to ask http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=7986.0

I don't think DL and AF can book Westjet, I'd love to be wrong though. I've never seen it online so if its true, you need to PUTPAC.
PS I just read QF started a partnership where you can use their points for West Jet

Thanks just read this on the Quants website.

Note: Classic Flight Reward bookings can only be made on Qantas (QF) codeshare flights operated by WestJet when connecting to or from a Qantas international service.

Right,  but I'm not sure how enforced that is. Canadian blogs implied not so strict IIRC
