KAPOORS ON THE ROAD
We were able to use a Companion Fare Voucher with Alaska Airlines and they apply some of our accumulated points to upgrade our seats. However, because we were making a relatively last minute booking, there were very few routes that had the comfy seats available. We managed to find a route that took us from Victoria, to Seattle, to Oakland and then on to Honolulu. We were upgraded to first class seats for the longest leg between the mainland and the Hawaii.
However, the downside was that we had a long layover in Seattle and then an overnight in Oakland. We never mind a layover in Seattle because we have access to the Centurion Lounge there, and it’s one of the best airport lounges we’ve every visited. The hotel was a different story. We would arrive on Oakland after midnight and have to catch an early flight, so we would need a bed for only a few hours. It’s tough to be us!
