When looking at this flight, how do I know which legs have J?


Here's the breakdown when you click on it:


One might think both legs are in J, but when searching for just LAX-SYD, there's no J space...

You'll be able to see it when you click on the 55K, or on the next page, or click on the 1 Stop.

I thought AS tells you when only a mixed cabin flight is available.

The second image was what popped up when I clicked "1 stop" but now that I clicked on 55K, I see you're right.



Y for the important leg.

Not worth paying 55K for that

How long does it take to transfer miles from Alaska Airlines to BA or Flying Blue? Their mileage and taxes to/from Israel are pretty bad 50K miles each way (or am I doing something wrong?)

You can't transfer AS to BA or FB.

Searching various dates to TLV only brings up BA and Korean. They used to show Air France KLM, did something change?

They don't have access to the same space that FB offers their own members.

This thread discusses the same issue.

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/alaska-airlines-mileage-plan/1665186-limited-partners-showing-mileage-plan-usage.html

All i can say is that awhile ago AF flights were easily available to TLV. Now its just BA with very high YQ.

Anyone have a good way to use AS miles to get to TLV? Award on AS to Europe and then FB miles to TLV?

Does AS ever allow one way award booking, or do they always charge the round trip fare ?
