I have the Alaska Airlines MBNA Master Card. This card offers a companion fare of 99$ + taxes. I wish to book a round trip ticket between Los Angeles and Tahiti on a partner airline like Air France.

Can I book myself a full fare ticket and pay 99$ + taxes for my companion?

I ask because using a companion fare is different from redeeming miles and I cannot find the fine print to see if the companion fare is only for Alaska Airlines or for partner airlines also.

    No. It's Alaskan airlines only.

For US based customers with an Alaska Airline affiliated card, the companion fare is limited to Alaska Airline flights only. Your link indicated that maybe you are a Canadian card holder, but I would imagine the same rules would apply.

But realistically, expecting a $99 companion fare on an international flight to Tahiti would be dreaming.


  • It's not that crazy to ask. It's definitely good on Alaska's international flights, they just don't go to Tahiti. (And Alaska flies some pretty expensive domestic routes; LAX => Dutch Harbor is more expensive than getting to Tahiti.) Aug 13, 2018 at 2:29
