It’s a long 14-hour flight from Boston to Seoul, South Korea, so having a comfortable business class seat can make the journey much more enjoyable. If you’re looking for an incredible trip to start 2025 without breaking the bank, take a look at this deal I found that can get you into South Korea in comfort.

Award Deal — Details

Even if you’re not located near the Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), this solid business class deal on Korean Air could be worth commuting into Boston for. Here’s how much it will cost and how you can book it:

  • Class: Business
  • Route: Boston (BOS) to Seoul, South Korea (ICN)
  • Cost: 75,000 Alaska Airlines miles + $18.10 in taxes
  • Travel Dates: January 2025 to March 2025
  • Award Seats: Up to 2 passengers per route in business

How To Book

Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles are valuable as you can redeem them for luxurious flights, such as business class flights to Fiji on Fiji Airways and first class on Japan Airlines to several countries in Asia, to name a few. And the process to book flights on partner airlines using Alaska Airlines miles is quite simple.

There’s a fair amount of availability between January and March 2025, but you will likely need to be flexible with your travel dates to score this award booking.

Alaska is charging 37,500 miles to book this same flight in economy, which isn’t the best redemption. You will see this availability when you go to book.

Note that earning Alaska Airlines miles can be a bit tricky. You can earn miles by flying with Alaska Airlines or its partners, spending on one of its co-branded credit cards (like the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature® credit card), or booking a hotel or cruise with one of the airline’s partners.

Hot Tip:

If you’re a small business owner, you can also have the Alaska Airlines Visa® Business credit card to earn even more Alaska Airlines miles. This can be a great strategy if you live on the West Coast of the U.S., where Alaska has the majority of its available routes.

The other alternative is to earn Bilt Rewards points using the Bilt World Elite Mastercard® Credit Card. You can transfer these rewards at a 1:1 ratio directly to Alaska. This can be a great strategy if you’re currently paying rent as you can pay your monthly rent with the Bilt card with no transaction fees.

Final Thoughts

If you’re planning a trip to Asia right after the holiday season, this could be a great redemption for Alaska Airlines miles you may have. Alternatively, if you don’t have enough miles for this redemption and are interested in earning heaps of Alaska Airlines miles for a partner redemption, you may consider grabbing a new card to begin spending toward future flight redemptions.
