Alaska First Class Trans-con: Worth It?

So I have a bunch of miles saved up. Enough to cash in for a first class ticket on Alaska. I'm debating how to use them. I could either fly on Alaska, or cash them on on one of Alaska's partners-Continental, Northwest, or Delta. So my question: Who here has flown Alaska trans-con, or something equivilant? And, is it worth flying Alaska? Or a partner?

I can either use these miles for a trip out east, or I know I have to be in LA in late January. To me, it wouldn't be worth cashing them in for first class to LA. There's no meal. No free movie player. Only a little over 2 hours. Versus around 4 1/2 to 5 hours, a meal, and the free movie player to use.

So, what do you think?

Thanks for the help!

Use the AS miles on CO. No question about it. AS is a decent carrier, but CO beats them, especially in the long haul business, hands down, period.

Try to use them on CO. They are the best when it comes to domestic first class, hands down. And try to fly a really long route so you can use your miles to their full potential  Smile

Thanks, guys. That's pretty much what I figured. I'm not sure exactly where out east I want to go, yet. At least if I fly CO, I could get to fly first to wherever my final destination is...assuming it isn't on CO Express. AS only has limited cities out east they serve right now.
