Hello Fellas

Newbie here. I was reading this forum and since i have no experience with this type of things, i need advice.

My trip is from 30.12 MAD - SCL(bussines), 6.1 SCL - LIM - MAD (first segment is restricted economy and its operated by LATAM, rest is IB, and from LIM - MAD its bussines). tickets starts 045
On IB site i can see whole itinerary, seems to be OK, also check other airlines (didnt know i can check my reservation elsewhere, but it also looks OK) but on LATAM page it just cant load anything related to trip, its just dissappear.

When i bought tickets i was counting there is small chance to fly, so i knew the risks. But im just seeking for advice from more experience people around here as im guessing according the forum here, there is somethign wrong with my booking.

Should i leave it alone and come back let say 1 month prio, or should i try to contact asap OTA, LATAM, and try to do something with that right now, or just wait from some kind of msg from them about cancelation or what so ever ?

Thanks for advice, and sorry for my english im not native speaker

Try different browser for LATAM? for me most of the time it fails in Firefox (both Iberia and LATAM) but then it works just fine in Chrome. Note your PNR that works with IB/BA/RJ/MH/AY won't work with LA - LATAM uses a different system and your trip is likely to have a different PNR for LA website.

This thread is amusing. Can't believe how hard people are twisting themselves into knots trying to convince themselves that somehow these tickets will survive or that the sh*t OTA they booked from will actually do anything to help them.

I tried use chrome (normaly using Brave), and its the same issue :"We could not show your itinerary"

Also got two PNR one for IB that is working normaly everywhere, but that one for LATAM it doesnt work and on their page it just cant show the itinerary (i could see on LATAM everything lets say first 3-4 days.)

Welcome to FT Karanda
You made an interesting start. Keep on reading and hopefully some others will help you out! You have plenty of time until December and hopefully things will work out in the end or youll know within the next week or two as people are receiving letters of cancellations. However, At the same time people who are calling the OTAs may get a resolution. Its up to you how you want to proceed but I would give it a few days to see how things turn out

Keep laughing because the jokes on you. Plenty of people here have booked flights just like this one and managed to board the flight. Sh*t OTA or not.

Trip next May 2023 still intact minus the Latam GRU/SCL) seg,ment. Tried a few times to swap seats on the return SCL/MAD portion but no luck. Today no issues with changing seats.
Havn't heard anything. No contact from either airline and will wait for bit to see what happens.

My OTA encouraged me to check-in earlier and then I did. How messy.
