OK, this is my first post @ flyertalk. Booked LAX-YUL-GVA in May for one person at $1170 via Expedia. Confirmed within five minutes, but I was unable to select seats online. I called AC and they selected biz seats for all segments over the phone. However, AC called me back a few minutes after the call was over, but I missed that call.

In the future, please avoid calling the airline until the dust settles.

Is there really any risk of calling at this point? They're clearly aware of it.

I got 3 LAX-LHR for October - $1377 ea, all legs lie flat except the final YYZ-LAX segment, which I will probably drop anyway and fly home direct. Waiting for a few days to try direct with the airline for seats. Please post if you get updates on status. Big thanks to OP.

Was it that important to select seats today for a flight in May? Good job in alerting them about the fare.

Do we know what time he/she called?

@lzq5010, the # 1 rule of FT is DO NOT CALL THE AIRLINE! You may ruin it for everyone else here who hasn't booked their ticket. And I guess we need to add to that now DO NOT TWEET THE AIRLINE!

There were still a few people using present-tense, so I'm genuinely curious.

But then my question is the same. Can we call now?

Looks like another fine ÉrrorPlan deal. The real question is whether these R fare tickets will grant you access to the SSL?!

Wish I could find the thread about how experienced FTers deal with these promotional fares. They’re making cocktails and snacks while the noobs are worrying about their seats and hotels.

Anyone else have an idea where to find that? I think it needs to be resurrected!
