BA says ticket has been issued, CX says it hasn't - what to do?

Hi All,

I'm having problems with an Avios booking, MAN-HKG.

The original booking, in CX's premium economy, was made in March and ticketed correctly.

I managed to use a couple of 241s to purchase four LHR-LAX seats in CW, before heading off to KOA and OGG on a paid ticket in Y.

I wouldn't do that again. The trip from LAX to the islands in Y,...

Gourock periodically gets a mention on FT, but I think this is a first sighting of pie and beans. The conjunction of the two pretty much encapsulates my first twenty years.

Great trip report!

This can mean only one thing: Diamond Club is back!

Probably a reaction to the recent changes to BAEC.

I'm off to plan my next LHR-LAX return on NZ in C for 37500 miles.

For DUB-PHL on US, it depends when you're going. That route is serviced by a 757, with sloping seats, for some of the year. In summer, I think it reverts to a 332, with very good flat beds (superior...

Yes, you can do this pretty straightforwardly. As others have pointed out, at LAX you'll have to clear customs and then just hand your bags to the staff at the baggage carousel.

They're invariably rammed already. A better suggestion would be to build a satellite lounge at 5C, or even just to make better use of the spare capacity in the lounge at 5B.
