Alaska temporarily removes Iberia award redemptions
Editor's note: This post has been updated with more information from Alaska Airlines.
Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan has temporarily removed the ability to book Iberia award tickets, per a change on the airline's award chart page.
According to the airline's website, Iberia bookings were removed "due to a high rate of booking failures," and the airline is "working with Iberia to resolve the issue."
Iberia award pricing still displays on the airline's award chart page. For reference, Alaska charges 35,000 and 75,000 points for a one-way ticket from the U.S. to Europe in economy and business class, respectively. Compared to other Alaska redemptions, this is not a great deal. For example, you can redeem 70,000 points for a one-way ticket from the U.S. to Asia in Cathay Pacific first class.
In the past, Iberia awards were bookable on Alaska's website.

It's also worth mentioning that Iberia is one of Alaska's newest redemption partners. Alaska added Iberia bookings at the end of 2021, months after officially joining Oneworld.
Alaska confirmed this news to TPG, noting that Iberia awards cannot be booked online or over the phone. We'll update this article when Iberia bookings resume.
