Does booking.com have no 24-hour cancellation period?

Priceline works well now but needs passport numbers and I am trying to book a trip for 4 who are now asleep in Europe, lol...

Did it actually save the selected seats? I am seeing the seat map on rj.com, and can pick any seat - but when I try to save, it comes back with an error about "unavailable service" or some such.

Booked on Priceline for March 2023 with a one-night stop in Lima, $367. Went to IB website after getting my PNR and chose seats. So, it's legit.

Is the ticket issued by Latam or IB?

Yes, it saved. I pulled up the reservation on BA and it showed the selected seats. I was running into the same problem as yours, but when I tried another seat, somehow it worked.

Yes, some seats are listed as "preferred". But can't select any, including non-preferred ones.

Does anyone know if you can change passport numbers later in the booking? I assume you can...

045 stock (Latam). Ugh! Hope IB will take my BAEC number. I was able to pull my PNR on my Finnair mobile app.

Was hoping to rebook, but priceline.com is now erroring out, at least for my dates.

Where do you need passport details for BOOKING (ie before payment)?

Should just need Name and DOB

Isn't that always changeable at check in?

Woke up at just the right time to catch this, in for two issued through Propeller Travel, one MAD-LIM-SCL for Xmas/NY on IB metal on the long flight and the other MAD-SCL-IPC for 934 EUR.
Very happy to hit Easter Island!

Thanks for the link, just booked a return for two for $734 in Feb 23...! Now to pray the fare sticks...

Booked MAD-EZE-SCL-MAD roundtrip for $340, a great deal for mileage run on Alaska airline. Be careful on choosing seats after you book the cheapest biz flight on IB, I accidently chose the seat near the toilet, but can't change it anymore, called the customer service and being told that they only allow one-time seat picking.

You CALLED the customer service? NEVER CALL the airline while the deal is still alive.
