Where should I credit this ticket?
Check out where to credit. These tickets should book into fare code R, for some great earnings on Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan (Base miles -9529 miles). Other great places to credit these miles include Singapore Airlines. Be careful if your ticket books into fare code L, which is a new fare code for Singapore Airlines Premium Economy. Most partners haven’t updated their earnings charts to properly reflect the change.

I recommend booking this deal directly with the airline as that is the safest way to ensure that your tickets are in good hands.
