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.

All in all, another great promo from Alaska that can help you boost your Mileage Plan account faster and that pairs nicely with its other double miles promos including from Seattle to 8 other West Coast destinations, to several ski destinations, and on various new routes.
