Flights promo codes

Hi there I'm a little bit lost. This forum is so big! Is there a thread about promo codes for flight search engines or airlines? I have seen there is for Hotels but can't find one for flights.

You can discuss that in OMNI after you have 180 posts and 180 days here.

You'll need to post in the specific airline forum you're ticketed with. Cancellation policies can vary widely depending on destination, carrier and type of ticket - some will give you a credit towards future travel less a change fee (that can be as high as $250-300 on international routes), while others won't offer you any concessions at all.

First post, and not sure where to ask. Maybe the dumbest question of all time, but I really don't know--do you earn EQM's for award travel?

Thank you. Follow-up; so EQM's are still earned if you cash in upgrade certficates? It's not easy to find this information on any of the airline program pages.

Sometimes (most time?) you earn at the rate of the economy ticket you paid cash for and not the upgraded class rate.

Better to look on the AA & DL forums. The AA forum has sticky threads on top and wiki threads. Can be hard to navigate/understand but one you understand how these work the answer to most basic question are there.

What exactly are the Omni forums? Earlier in this thread it looks like you need to be a member for 180 days (have that) and have a 180 posts (barely have that). I have been seeing people reference that forum on a couple of posts but when I click that hyperlink from the home page even when signed in it tells me can't access that forum

I'm not sure what you mean by "check in at the gate," since you don't check in at gates. But if you want to know about connecting onto a flight, visit the forum for the airline operating that flight.
