OU vouchers are not tax-exempt, i.e., no adjustments for taxes. This makes sense in your case because you're basically getting a refund for the trip, including the taxes you paid. In any event, the...

I don't think I've experienced this with AY, although I have experienced this with other merchants. (My experience is that AY puts a $1.00 "authorization" that does take a while to drop out.) Unless...

I think there is a difference between making an assertion based on one's experience that contradicts the rules and making a contradicting statement without any basis in experience. My impression is...

My experience is that codeshare flights coded as AY do count as AY flights for Lumo purposes. Specifically, AY flights operated by BA and AA have counted for me.

Check out SCL in AA PE from SFO/SJC/LAX. It is often in the $1200-1400 range. Route through DFW, and two trips should get you 35000 EQM (or very close) for $2400-$2800. Also check AA Vacations to see...

My perspective is that we were (for the most part) entertained, while OP was unfairly subjected to stress on both ends of the trip.

I am going to hazard a guess and say no news is likely...

Did the agent understand that BKK-HKG is in J but HKG-HND is in F? If the space is showing up across multiple sources, then I think itís probably an AA issue.

What do you mean by break? It sounds like youíve secured HND-SFO that is married to MNL-HND. Thereís no trick to break that and connect it with something else like SIN-HNDóthatís the definition of...

Is Au Bon Pain really that much healthier compared to McDonald's? Looking at the nutrition menu for both, it doesn't look like Au Bon Pain is really much healthier. A Big Mac has 29g of fat and 540...

From BUF, AY J to BKK is ~$3300, which is not as good as YYZ but not terrible. Maybe also keep an eye out for JL PE to Asia (right now I see only things in the $3000 range, but it can be lower,...

Maybe the problem is that HND-SFO is married to MNL-HND. If you can find the segments separately online, I would use the multi-city function to put them on hold and then call in and see if the agent...

It shouldn't confuse them. I'd ask them to search BKK-HND on Cathay, and if they can't find the flights then tell them the specific flight numbers. As a last resort, I'd confirm that they are...

If you are based in BUF, I would consider flights out of YYZ. For example, Finnair consistently has flights to BKK (and other SE Asia destinations, like HKG) for ~$2600 in J. If you go later in the...

Yes, 40k miles.

You might want to check over on the CX award thread, as there have been reports of increasing married segment issues with CX. So even though BKK-HKG and HKG-HND are available...

I have received that error, and I believe the issue in my case was that the fare class wasn't actually available. It was a W fare to/from HKG that seemed almost too good to be trueóand it turned out...

My favorite airport hotel is probably the Fairmont YVR. The Grand Hyatt DFW is also great, but the plane-spotting at DFW is pretty boring (mostly AA). There is, however, a plane-spotting...

You should be able to choose your seats in F in advance for free. If your AA PNR doesn't work on BA's site, call and ask for the BA PNR.

The Beekman is certainly in a different tier than Gild Hall and Andaz Wall Street, and I think the prices (and points required) reflect that.

Generally, I would take the TA rankings for NYC with a...
