This has been my experience - I get to call the 1K desk so the agents there are usually very clueful, but I've never found a case where a phone rep couldn't do the same thing as a gate agent... I've...

does associated 'B' domestic fare carry over from PPlus booking?

I'm considering doing SYD->SFO->RDU in PPlus. The domestic legs of an R or A-fare ticket appear to book into B. Does anyone know if that 'B' fare is treated consistently for things like same-day...

I've got a flight back home from HNL in January 2020 that we paid to upgrade from Y->J. Currently all views I can find of the reservation show only PQP credit for the original class of service. ...

I have a flight that was booked in 2019 but will be flown in 2020. It was roughly $700 in base fare, I paid ~600 to upgrade it. At present, it shows that it only earns PQPs for the base fare. ...

Thanks to all - I had valid dates but was looking for R on a flight that does have P+ but didn't have any R availability... so I was in fact doing it wrong but for a different wrong reason. ...

pricing PPlus flights on partial PPlus routes?

Anyone know if there's a trick to figuring out pricing and routing when you want to book in PP, but not all the flights in your trip are PP-enabled?

For example, RDU-SFO-SYD would have PP on the...

Moving a ticket (within 24hrs of purchase) from Y -> F, reliably, online?

My use case: we're required by corporate to book tickets in Y. I want to fly up front and am fine paying that difference out-of-pocket. In an ideal world, I would be able to have corporate book the...

But there's no way (just by looking at the fare code) to know that it books into Z, rather than J or C or P... that's what I was hoping for.

Mapping various -UP fares to J/C/D/P?

Is there a well defined mapping of what coach class fare buckets are mapped to which first class fare buckets when doing (domestic) -UP fares? (Assuming they're still even called that...)

can you buy-up a ticket after initial purchase/ticketing on NZ?

As background, we're limited to purchasing economy tickets for work and have to book them via a specific travel agent rather than directly through the airlines. On UA, their systems allow me to...

any way to show fare avail for segments separately for AAA-BBB-CCC?

So... let's say I want to try and find something with reasonable chances to upgrade on, so we do the usual thing of looking for flights that have better availability in the P/Z bucket. But if I'm...

one-off LAS-RDU on UA metal, what's that about?

I happened to see UA1220 pop up as a LAS-RDU nonstop when I was looking at SDC options... but what's up with this? It's only being offered on Friday the 11th and looks like a one-time deal. Could...

what influences who "owns" and can "touch" a reservation?
