50% Off Alitalia Coach Redemptions

Alitalia is offering 50% off all economy ‘classic’ (capacity controlled) redemptions booked by January 15 for travel through March 24.

Somehow this promotion has been around for awhile and I wasn’t aware of it, but it certainly provides real value for instance U.S. to Italy in coach runs 25,000 miles roundtrip instead of 50,000. (A one-way ticket under this promo runs 15,000 miles.) The offer is available on Alitalia flights only, not on partners or codeshares, and isn’t available on intra-Italy domestic routes or between Italy and France.

Alitalia is an American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner and a Starwood Preferred Guest transfer partner, among others. Just 20,000 Starwood points are enough for a roundtrip coach ticket between the US and Italy with this offer.

  1. Im a bit of. Rookie. I know they are Parton SkyTeam somehow can Ouse some of my large stash of Delta miles to redeem as part of this great deal?

  2. Xandrios – Great point. But can you use SkyTeam miles, such as Delta miles, or do they have to be Flying Blue miles from either AF or KL?

  3. My comment above should say *part of* SkyTeam and then *use* my stash of Delta miles.

    Using the iPad is never good….

  4. Gary,

    1) so you can’t use sky pesos?

    2) if not, could you use 12500 Starwood points to transfer to them to get the 15000 one way from lax-Rome for example?

    3) what’s the best way to search for flights?

  5. @Michael — this is a Millemiglia discount, not a Skymiles discount, applies to Alitalia’s miles program only. Starwood points only get the bonus when you transfer in 20,000 increments (Varies with the airline programs where transfers are not 1:1). 12,500 Starpoints = 12,500 Alitalia miles, 15,000 Starpoints = 15,000 Alitalia miles.

    I search for flights at airfrance.us
