Alaska Airlines and Japan Airlines launched their frequent flier partnership last month (read more here) and now Mileage Plan members can earn double miles on select JAL flights.
The offer is valid on Japan Airlines flights between Tokyo and Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle and Vancouver between July 7 – September 30, 2016, and required registration.
You can register for this offer on Alaska’s website here.
Note that this offer is only valid on flights that are both marketed and operated by Japan Airlines in the following fare classes:
- First Class – A, F
- Business Class – C, D, J, I, X
- Premium Economy – E, W
- Economy fares – B, H, K, M, Y
Nice promo for those that would credit these flights to Alaska’s program. Just to thing to consider that this only benefits those that fly in premium cabins OR expensive economy fares. Most of the discounted fare classes are excluded.
It is interesting that Alaska still hasn’t enabled award redemption on JAL while JAL members can already redeem for Alaska’s flights.
Here are the terms and conditions:
