  • Login problems: If you have trouble logging into the Iberia website, type in your number and password by hand instead of using autocomplete. For some people this fixes login issues.
  • Partner awards: Many flights on partners will not be available as one-way. You must redeem AA flights as a round trip for example
  • Cancellations: Iberia awards on AA cannot be cancelled.

That’s what I am looking to achieve. My ticket expires 16Nov2019, want to change to 2020, possibly April or July..... I’ll take some time next week to call Spanish CS....
i don’t think I’ll succeed in this case because my account is negative....

Got 9.00 USD of refund in my credit card account from Iberia. Probably from one of the segments between MAD and SDR; either way, i had last flown with Iberia in March (flights to/from MAD & SDR) + redemption flights. five months of "processing" but nevertheless a delightful surprise.

Really? I might have “flown” the same flights. Has anyone else received this?

Called in Spanish line- she was pleasant. I had to do it to two reservations and she was efficient and did it all in one shot and helped me pick seats.
When calling, I had to specify "iberia plus" to the bot. I first called to the regular booking line and she couldnt help me.
No mention of points refund at all or the promotion.
6 calls and i was able to change to April 2020

I also got a $13 refund today. Don't think I requested it at all. Weird.

Correct. Forgot that it extended over a year so this really worked out well; I booked in late nov 2018 before the dec 1 deadline, ~330 days out which was early november 2019.

i explain. Im thinking of change the date to an available date in September them change it again to further date - next year.... I wonder if this would create a new locator - that would be issued in 2019.... eliminating 2018 booking 😅
i know Im trying to trick the system, Im available to travel from 20Sep to 5October, but there are no seats available
Still same reference.

https://thepointsguy.com/news/iberia...ees-aa-awards/ reports that the refunds are because Iberia charged the $4.50 Passenger Facility Charge for AA awards when they apparently shouldn't have.

Thanks!
Same here... Was able to change my flight, same locator, but on Amadeus confirmation email there's an extra locator there.

I believe Iberia reservations always have two PNRs, one for Amadeus and one for Iberia's internal system. In your case, did either PNR change from your initial booking? (I wouldn't expect either to change.)

I didn’t noticed the second PNR in my first booking, just on the second one. The main PNR still the same

Its certainly starting to look like the IT isnt advanced enough to distinguish as to where the miles originally came from.
I had to cancel a single promo award flight due to coming home early (family bereavement) and IB could not reschedule the award ticket.

Got all the miles back after 7 days + the taxes- the change fee.

Miles now transferred to BA

Cancelled an award and have been told avios will refunded in either 3 days, 2-3 weeks, or 1 month depending on the agent

In practice how long after an award ticket is cancelled do refunded avios typically return to the related Iberia account?
