Fuel surcharges applied?

Alaska Airlines generally only charges fuel surcharges when redeeming on British Airways flights. It does not charge for instance on Emirates.

How to find award availability?

The Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan search engine has become excellent and lists Air France, American, Emirates, British Airways among others. It DOES NOT list Cathay Pacific currently. Keep in mind that you can not combine partners – you can only combine a partner AND Alaska Airlines (to connect).
