There was a VS7/23 consolidation recently that I know of and it remained an A350. It may change, if there is more seats sold in the premium cabins than the 789 allows, the it'll likely go to the 350.

I don't know for sure, but I can't imagine it would be after T24.

24 hours is when the ticket (doesn't matter if its revenue or reward) transitions to airport control, after that changing it is...

I haven't seen any further updates, I suspect that once things settle a little more - if it is going to happen, we will be made aware. I hope it does!

Economy

The A330ís have the benefit of having a 2x4x2 layout in Economy, which means if you can bag an A/C or H/K seat then you either get window or aisle, no middle seat which is good. The layout...

The only time status has ever helped me with reward seats, is at the airport.

Heavy routes like LAX and HKG are notorious for people asking for upgrades and usually check in or lounge staff put...

IIRC they aren't offered pro-actively on day flights.

A travel agent putting a booking together doesn't automatically mean an interline agreement is in place, it just means all of your information is stored in one PNR. If you did that, you'd likely find...

I see your point Raffles, but frankly that is their problem.

Surely they worked all this out prior to offering the card... oh wait, they're a bank, so probably not :D

If this is indeed the case, that sucks. I want miles for every pound spent. The fact i've paid the bill early to free up more spend is irrelevant.

That's good to know. I suspected that would be the case because you can even upgrade non-upgradable buckets and travel agent tickets on the day too.

Price will be decided based on how many seats...

If it's a Delta PNR then they are the ticketing carrier, and VS is the operating carrier. The changes would need to be done with DL inline with their rules.

Not sure why the switch, probably just fleet management given that they have issues with the 787 engines.

There isn't a fixed amount AFAIK, it varies depending on the seats available. For a flight of that length, I would expect around £650 one way from Premium to Upper. Anything cheaper would be a good...

DL won't touch it if it was ticketed by VS. You'd have to get the ticket released from VS so DL can make changes. I'm not even sure that they'd do that if it's a VS reward booking. They do with...

I think you may struggle getting it booked onto AF metal as oppose to DL. You could cancel the booking entirely, or you could suggest a re-route via London. It will probably be the case that you'd...
