Example flight from California to Fiji using Alaska miles
I found a ton of Economy award space available from both Los Angeles and San Francisco to Fiji. In this example, you would pay 40,000 Alaska Airlines mile and $154 in taxes and fees. I’m not sure I’d want to fly that far in Economy, but it is a great deal.
The “Partner Business” results shown below is actually a mixed cabin of First Class on Alaska between airports in the U.S., then Economy on Fiji Airways. Search around or call Alaska Airlines customer service, and I’m sure you’ll find some Business/First Class availability.
