One of the more interesting airline partnerships is that between Alaska Airlines and Emirates. Neither is in one of the three major alliances, and Alaska is the only US carrier whose miles you can earn and redeem on Emirates. In fact, it was by redeeming Alaska miles that I flew Emirates’ famous first class suites aboard an A380 last year from Dubai to New York.

On the earning side, Alaska has sweetened this partnership by extending full elite-qualifying mileage earning to all its partners including Emirates, so if you are paying for an Emirates flight, sending those frequent flyer miles to your Alaska Mileage Plan account is a great option to have.

Double Miles

Now Alaska is offering its flyers double miles on 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; as well as on onward connecting Emirates flights from Dubai now through November 30, 2014.

To earn the double miles, register your Mileage Plan number by June 15, 2014, and prior to your first qualifying flight, for travel between April 21, 2014, and November 30, 2014.

Flights must be marketed and operated by Emirates and flown in A, B, C, E, F, H, I, J, K, L, M, P, Q, R, T, U, V, W, X, and Y classes of service. The miles must be credited to your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan account in order to earn double miles, and all travel must be completed by November 30, 2014. Double miles will not count towards Mileage Plan elite status.


Alaska is also offering its frequent flyers discounts of 5-10% on Emirates flights purchased now through June 15, 2014 for flights through November 30, 2014 using the promo code USALK14.

You get the full 10% off the base fare for First Class and Business Classes of service, A, C, F. I, J, and P or 5% off the base fare for Economy Class of service, B, E, H, K, L, M, Q, R, T, U, V, W, X, and Y. This is valid for new ticket purchases only at using promo code USALK14.

As you can see, the promo code automatically populates on the Emirates page, so you just have to search for flights as usual, and be sure you are crediting them to your Alaska account so you earn the bonus miles.

    Alaska isn’t the only US partner; you can also earn & redeem for Emirates with Virgin America’s FF program.

    I’ve been loving Alaska’s mileage plan more and more this past year. Well on my way to earning at least Gold MVP. Looking forward to booking some nice award flights on Emirates :)

    I just recently booked a flight thru Emirates website for travel in July. Based on the above, would it be better to create an acct with Alaska Airlines and credit my flights thru them or just leave it with Emirates. This is my first time flying Emirates so I’d be starting with fresh with either. Oh, and I am flying Economy.

    It appears that flights must originate in the US (i.e., offer is not valid for flights originating in Dubai or elsewhere in the Emirates network and flying to the US). The deadline appears to have been extended to July 15.

    Thanks for all the great insights. I’m flying Emirates Seattle-Dubai-Chennai and Mumbai-Dubai-Seattle in December on fare classes U and Q (as best I can tell), so it appears I will only get 50% of miles toward elite status on Alaska. Getting actual flight miles on this would put me at MVP Gold Status. Is there any way around this? Thanks!
