launched with earn only benefits now sees the launch of redemption
options! The awards price similar to Alaska Airlines’ other partners on
flights from Canada. Flights to Asia start as low as 35,000 miles
one-way on Japan Airlines (Cathay prices slightly better at 30,000) but
this still provides a good option seeing that you can earn 25,000 Miles
on your first purchase with the mbna Alaska Airlines MasterCard
and then spend $10,000 to earn that other 10,000 miles for the base
level award ticket. Business and First Class flights price out quite
nice as well. Here is just sampling of the Mileage Plan awards to Asia
on JAL:

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Platinum Preferred
Members enrolled in the Crossover Rewards  program traveling on Delta
flights will clear for Complimentary Upgrades to both First Class and
Delta Comfort+ based on their SPG tier level on paid tickets. This
means that Marriott Platinum’s also qualify since they get instant SPG
Platinum status. (Source One Mile at a Time)
