Pardon my ignorance, I'm not familiar with Momondo. Those look like fantastic prices. But we're in Pittsburgh, and the site doesn't seem to route me through MSP to get to Europe.

Quick question. Haven't bought in on miles for quite awhile, but 2 family members unexpectedly need to go to Australia and want to fly C or better. To do this, we'd need to use 2 of our accounts (but...

You know, after reading all the doom and gloom here about LH business class, I was reluctant to fly the mini-RTW I'd assembled on it years ago - east coast US to Europe to Asia (including a nice...

Just to clarify: this is true with an international (I believe it's actually transoceanic - i.e. TATL or TPAC) itin in business or first. A coach international itin doesn't upgrade the domestic parts...

Are those both Air Japan flights? US generally can't book Air Japan. I don't believe it's formally defined as impossible (as LH F apparently just was) but it's not really a HUACA thing.

Delta once sold me BOS-ATL-PIT. Of course once we're into USDM redemption territory, all bets are off and US refused to give me HKG-KIX, whereas HKG-BKK-KIX was perfectly acceptable.

Off-peak saver meaning 35k Y / 60k C? Believe that's on US metal only, if I'm not mistaken. But if that's not the case, please correct me - would love to go overseas on LH for 60k in C!

Does this mean that the agent completely cancelled your US ticket and issued you a UA ticket? I'm assuming that's the only way to change the ticket stock, no?

+1

Was actually offered US-Asia-EU-US by a CSR without asking for it. Didn't end up taking them up on it, but it's certainly possible.

That reminds me, I didn't post my own marginally allowable itin that we flew earlier this month. Bought it maybe 3-4 months ago with DM, mainly from the 100% bonus specials.

Went up awhile back, unfortunately.

They've been paring back the benefits, little by little, and raising the price. But now that we're back at 100% instantly, you can go back to reserving the...

Went through all the possibilities on this route as I'm hoping to go from PIT to SYD late this summer, and you know how TPAC availability in F is - even on UA.

The main issue is that ICN-SYD...

Yep, also a possibility and one I'm frankly surprised we haven't already seen happen.

Ugh. Lawsuits, really? The T&C's don't promise partner availability. I miss the LH/LX F days as much as the...
