I had the same issue - I used the ticket number on Qatar Airways and they have the 6 digit booking code

Got on board this one via Flight Network in Australia. Tried twice with Booking.com but errored out after hitting the go button. Let's hope it sticks.

Many thanks to OP

Ugh. Looks like Spain is still requiring proof of a vaccine or COVID test for entry. Is that right? I guess I'm out on this one.

Looks like the cancellations with Delta started 2 days after the deal was published. I guess it's nice to have a vague reference... best of luck to us all

If these book in IB codes in J, they should earn 250% the miles flown on AA, and if they book in IB codes in I, 150%. Distance flown is about 13-14k miles, depending on route. So, this would either be 35k RDMs/LPs, or 20k RDMs/LPs, unless I am missing something....Does it matter that the ticket is on LATAM, for example?

This is still live. Just successfully booked on Booking.com, after my first two attempts errored out. (Both times errors billed my CC and then issued an immediate refund). About $500 CAD per person for next April.

I can't get Finnair to send my eReceipt (also keeps erroring out) but can see the booking as confirmed both there and with RJ. Let's see what tomorrow brings.

Thanks OP!

Update on seat selection: I was able to do it on RJ website eventually. Those who can't select seats on IB might give it a try.

THANKS OP!

I ended up booking three tickets via Priceline for $369 each. Never used them before. Was going to book through booking.com but no 24 hour cancellation window and the daughter is sleeping right now so couldn't get confirmation from her. I wanted to book them for Christmas but the thought of having it cancelled out at some point close to that time was a bit much to worry about. I was able to use the PNR that Priceline gave me to reserve my business class seats on IB. When I went to get seats on Latam for the one flight SCL-LIM after going to manage my trips I got a message that says
"Your trip does not yet have an administrator
Enter an email to continue. This person can manage your trip to Santiago de Chile.
Keep in Mind:
Only the Administrator can carry out refunds..."

Not too sure what that means...
I have never booked an error fare before. Someone responded that we really wouldn't know until we were BIS. Can they really cancel it out at the last minute? I booked for February. Wouldn't they most likely cancel them out long before that?

So as this is a free fare basis - does this mean we can cancel for free with the airline? or will they not touch it?

If you get LAs 777 with their new business class I would choose that over IB

Got a RT for next year. Tried to use my PNR on the royal jordanian/iberia/finnair sites and no go. Works fine on LA's site, what confirmation number are y'all using?

booked April via PL, not the cheapest US$370. One way direct A350, return via LIM 787 + A350.

There are still dates available in Feb/March via Booking.com if you can make it through. I tried twice, but failed. Others appear to have got through, so may be worth a go for those still trying to jump onboard.
