Currently, Alaska shows I can use Alaska Miles for award travel on Continental.
With Continental leaving Sky Team, will this change? I went to Sky Team's site and I didn't even see Alaska as a member.
The reason I ask - and maybe you can give me some tips - is I am flying PDX>MCO in January. Right now, I have enough miles for both of us to fly FC. However, Alaska's schedule (at least what I could find) doesn't show any direct flights on that route in January - they all show flying Horizon to Seattle and then on to MCO. I really want to avoid Horizon or other commuter type.
In looking at my other options - it looks like my only other hope is Continental. I have avoided looking into making reservations just yet until it seems like all the schedule changes have finished...but maybe I should act now?
Advice for a award-travel-newbie???
