Will my waitlist be cancelled? What happens if the waitlist clears, and I now have 2 confirmed tickets on the same flights/same name. I called the SIN office, they said the system will detect a duplicate booking and may or may not prompt before the system auto cancels the waitlist. Is there any way around the system, and if the SIN office is correct?
SIN office is correct, EVA will detect duplicate booking. In my case, the office asked me which reservation that I would like to cancel.
Waitlist for me seemed to clear around 2-3 weeks before departure.
