Double Alaska Miles (and a Discount) for Emirates Flights

Double Alaska Miles (and a Discount) for Emirates Flights

Between its own mileage bonuses for Seattle flights (to fight off Delta’s incursions into its hometown market) and the bonuses for British Airways flights, Alaska Airlines has been on a promotional tear lately.

The latest: bonus miles for Emirates flights.

Offer Details

Between April 21 and November 30, Mileage Plan members can earn double miles for non-stop Emirates flights between Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, New York-JFK, San Francisco, Seattle, or Washington D.C. and Dubai, and for onward connecting flights from Dubai.

Registration is required, by June 15.

There’s also a discount — 10 percent for first and business, 5 percent for coach — on offer for the same flights. To take advantage of the discount, use promotion code USALK14 when booking.

Deal or No Deal

Emirates is a frequent-flyer partner in three U.S. airline programs: Alaska’s, JetBlue’s, and Virgin America’s. But this Alaska Mileage Plan double miles promotion is the only bonus currently on offer for members of one of the U.S.-carrier programs. So for Americans flying Emirates during the promotion period, opting to earn Alaska miles will probably deliver the best value. The discount helps, as well.
