Do you guys think Sequence Diagrams are required for the Use Cases mentioned in the Alternative Flows - Log In and Create Profile?

And I guess Awards Travel is also an Alternative Flow but I am already inclined to provide a Sequence Diagram for that since it seems so tightly linked with Pay for Itinerary.

the answer is you May or May not. You can depict Login and Create profile as a seperate Sequence Diagram or can add it with a Main Flow sequence diagram. You can also depict them as comments in the Main Flow sequence diagram as a "pre-condition" or "post-condition". Comments within a sequence diagram could include
After being logged user performs .........
If user has awards travel card, user proceeds to pay using it.....
