October 2017 Award Redemption Updates

Singapore Airlines

As of September 27th, Singapore Airlines released an award chart for redeeming SQ miles for Alaska Airlines flights. This would be the cheapest option for West Coast to Hawaii award flights in Economy @ 12,000 miles each way. Unfortunately, it seems the integration of Alaska awards into Singapore’s booking system is still in progress. These award tickets will only be bookable via phone. In the meantime, British Airways still remains a fantastic value when booking flights from the West Coast to Hawaii at 12,500 miles each way while flying on Alaska or American metal.
