2 X 241 vouchers

Has anyone have any experience of using two 241 Amex vouchers.

I wish to take a flight in f with these vouchers to take famy members but have never done this.

I have found several flight times which have 4 reward seats free but can't see how to book online. Do I have to call?

Also to complicate matters one of our group who is retired is wishing to come back at a later date is this possible to do at the time of booking or can I do later? I assume to change anyway I would have to do it over he phone.

you have to travel together, so that's part 2 out of the window.

I've redeemed 2x 2-4-1s but we open-jawed so had to book over the phone anyway.

Not possible unless you book it as a 4-4-2, and book a separate return ticket for this passenger and they no show on the return.

Or if another passenger would return at the same time later on, book it as two 2-4-1 bookings, same outbound but different inbound.

Yes, you can redeem 2 at once. That's how I usually use the 241. However you can't have a member of the party returning on a different flight from the rest of the group. This'll be your biggest stumbling block.. I suggest you call to get your options clarified.. good luck

Thanks. But can't we simply change one of the tickets even with a change fee?

I've redeemed 2 x 241's, open jaws and the fee was waived at the time. I also am of the understanding that all 3 companions MUST travel with the voucher holder. Now... where have you found availability for 4 seats on 'several flights in F' ?

I really don't think you can as it is "wedded" to the other ticket in its pair..

No, it's a 2-4-1 - the terms and conditions say "The Member and their Companions must travel together at all times therefore must be booked onto the same flight and cabin class when travelling using a Companion Voucher." It's pretty clear.

In fact, since the owner of both 2-4-1s must be traveling, the other three are "wedded" to the other ticket in the four.

No. I'm not sure what part of "everyone must travel together" isn't clear.

Why the need to be so rude stifle?

A prefectly reasonable question on a rare occurance, as evidenced by the normal polite posters on here.

To everyone else thanks for the answer.

Stifle was the 8th person to tell you you couldn't do this.

I think you're the one being rude by ignoring the advice of a lot of other posters.

How have I ignored any advice? If you read the thread you will see that I simply probed the situation by adding a further question of paying a change fee.

Not unreasonable given these tickets are touted as being fully flexible.

Is it any wonder people have a negative opinion of this board with answers like this?!
