good call. If I had waited for every AA-booked CX redemption to ticket, before starting to plan the rest of my trip, Iíd have missed out on some real bargains. Again, over 100 ticketed CX segments in...

Correct. You wonít lose the seats. Iíve booked over 100 CX segments, mostly through AA, close-in tickets quickly, far out travel can take a few weeks to ticket. So far, OP has described absolutely...

Can't emphasize enough what an amateur move it is to try and book a trip in its entirety. You grab each segment as you go. My recent JFKHKGDPS round-trip required four separate phone calls (at...

Stinks to blame the victim, but such is the risk one takes when patronizing this particular business model. This isnít a Norwegian issue. Itís the model. Low fares. High risk.
