Combining Bookings under one Confirmation Number

I have a ticket booked under my name, and separately my family were booked on the same flight (same class, fares as mine) under a different confirmation number. Question: Is it possible to get Emirates to put all the tickets under my booking reference?

I don't think so. Why do you want to?

Seems an unusual thing to do, but you could call them and ask. The other way around is easy to do for them, I have done it a few times when the return date of one passenger needs to be changed. That’s called ‘splitting the reservation ‘.

They cant combine them into one booking reference, but they can link them so that for any reason they will be treated as one (seat assignments at checkin etc)

I have tried before and failed. They can however write a note saying you are traveling together so if they offload passengers they ‘shouldnt’ split you guys.

I can see this this will help very little with your situation of wanting to book seats
