Rant about non allaince ticketing

What a frustrating afternoon.

I booked myself home via MEL (from SYD) on 38. With the new AC/VA partnership I was able to book a SYD-MEL with ease and then connect the next day.

I arrived at SYD 5 hours earlier than planned. Thought I would try and get on an earlier flight

Problem A). VA won't touch 016 ticket stock, even same day with their flight number and won't let me standby
Problem B). I called AC and asked to be changed. That process took more than an hour at which point the earlier flight I wanted was closing and decided running and the stress wasn't work it.

So, just a quick warning, if you book on 016 on a foreign non *A airline, don't make any changes...it isn't worth it
