I am looking at taking advantage of the 40% bonus miles on offer from Alaska Airlines.
I am hoping to travel from Melbourne to Hong Kong return business class on Cathay Pacific in the period of May - September this year. Cathay Pacific is selling this airfair for around A$4.500.00. By taking advantage of the promotion by Alaska Airlines I would only need to buy A$1,620.00 worth of miles (43,000 + 17,200 bonus miles - $1,217.19 USD) - what great value!?
However, every time I search for any Melbourne - Hong Kong rewards seats I get the below message:
We could not fulfill your request. This could be due to one or more of the following reasons:
- There are flights, but all award space is taken.
- There are no flights for the city pair entered.
- There are no flights operating on the specific day of the week entered.
- The routing requested may not be allowed.
Please change your search.
Error Code: -1580
I have tried changing dates and months many times but nothing seems to be available? I understand the available seats Cathay provides Alaska Airlines for miles redemption would be low however is there something I am missing? Should I call Alaska Airline and try book through them?
I look forward to hearing any advice you can offer!
