Not sure related to this complain (in Tradition Chinese):
https://hk.on.cc/hk/bkn/cnt/news/201...00822_001.html

A Pax redeemed a ticket before applying new fuel surcharge deadline, CS agent said it's ok and will apply old fuel surcharge. But the call made at 23:00 and after few hours once the ticket issued, the ticket charging new fuel surcharge.

HUACA-ed and eventually booked the same itinerary as you did! Makes me wonder why the first Mandarin-speaking MPC lady mentioned the restriction whilst the second Cantonese-speaking AM guy had no hesitation at all...

Separately, I was charged an extra HKD 470 for YR, when there would none if the two legs were booked separately. What gives?!

Because the first agent is ignorant of rules and you should have pointed out https://www.oneworld.com/members/finnair to her.

If YR only disappears when you book the two legs separately, the only way to avoid it would be to issue two award tickets.

We all know that CX is manipulating their awards by categorising them into different levels (standard/choice/tailored) in order to lure you to pay more miles
But I didn't realised until today that CX releases those standard awards to BA instead of offering those to their MPO members

Was doing a search of CAN-HKG-ICN on BA on Y/PEY/J they were all available by using AVIOS
On the other hand, when I search for the same route departing on the same day
CX showed nothing until I push the button to Economy Tailored
The same happened on CX to all Y/PEY/J standard awards

Trying to redeem a business seat award flight. Is it better to redeem a round trip or two one ways? Does that affect chances of clearing? Thanks!

Not quite. If you waitlist two one ways and one sector clears, you will be asked to issue that sector within a few days even if your other sector hasnít cleared.

Iíll be all ears to hear experience where your clearing process depends on your ticket being round trip or not.

this is clearly stated in the question

Actually don't both one-way and round-trip get caught by the 4pm sweeper https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/cath...l#post30652877 ?

I think the sweeper isn't acting consistently but a friend of mine had a swept booking as recent as 14/2/19.
