They were paid by AC to fly the pax to BUD, and they did their part.

Turkish is a great airline, and bonus doesnt have fees. IST-DPS is their new plane (787), and if you can get that on the way to/from Bali, it will beat out all other options.

Why isnt any other airline having these issues? These grounded planes are only ~8% of the fleet.
Even small players like LOT and Icelandair (greater percentage of fleet grounded) are managing.

You expect AC to recognize your phone number when you call them and direct you to the right place, like every other airline?

Air Canada does this, they will offer 900 EUR voucher instead.
Those vouchers come with so many restrictions (no residual, dont cover fuel surcharge) - its a borderline scam.

Always take cash.

I dont get the outrage. Its 85000 miles....

For an OPM 1K/GS, thats earned very fast.

Your alternative on the route is AC Rouge. Who in the same situation would tell you to fend for yourself, and maybe give you a 5% coupon. You now have 600 Euros in your pocket.

Good thing is that agents are still willing to input the segments manually, and it prices out for them automatically.
If that happens, they wont question it.

No, there is no waitlist for UA awards on AC. The only way is if you see "I" open up - you can call United to rebook you.
Of course you can also change your award to any other flight for free.
