I have SEVERAL questions about HP and Phoenix and such.
First of all, I am trying to get from east Texas to Anchorage, AK. March 30 and return April 2, actually.
So AmWest has this great fare right now... DFW-PHX-ANC... hundreds less than anyone else.
But they don't have a return flight on Sunday, just Monday. Grrr- missing school.
So here come the questions.
Can I earn US Dividend Miles just by putting in my US number when I make the reservation? I think so, but I thought I'd ask here just in case someone has more info.
Can I make a 42 minute connection in Phoenix between a DFW incoming and an ANC outgoing? How crazy is Phoenix?
If I wanted to buy the space-available upgrade to first on just the PHX-ANC leg, could I do that? How much does that cost? I see that they offer upgrades for $50, but it's by distance, and ANC is FAR.
Does anyone have any alternate suggestions? I'd rather earn my CO miles with SkyTeam, but CO wants $700 ish for tickets.... no bueno. NW and DL are similarly high. AS is close, but not quite.
Okay, that should do it for now.
Thanks in advance,
P.S.- how about AmWest in general? Are they currently in good with the a.net members, or in bad? They seem to cycle...
