    Hi All-

    Really need some help here! There's so many articles about being able to use Avios to book Alaska flights but once and for all can someone PLEASE clarify the following? Can I use Avios to book Cathay via Alaska Airlines?

    Alaska has 70K First class available on Cathay. Can I use my Avios to pay for this?

    What do I say to BA when I call to do this?

    If you are using Avios, you follow the Avios reward chart. This article may help:

    You can use Avios to book first class on Cathay, but the 70k is the Alaska rate. Depending on where you are trying to fly to, it could be upwards of 100,000 points plus taxes + fees.
