Part of the problem though is that my actual ticket starts like...next week, it's a multi month RTW haha. I can only assume changing it after starting a trip makes it a bit messier.

While I know...

I'm not sure what the mistake fare was, but yeah, in one of those situations I can see why they wouldn't allow changes despite what's going on. I can see that they'd offer a refund, but usually when...

I'll say this as someone who has SOME knowledge being a ground handler, also formerly for an employer who handled BA.

There's no chance the groomers (cleaners) have a list of which seats to clean...

Apr 3-6th I have BKK-CAN-WNZ-TPE-SEA-YVR on an AP ticket. I booked it that way partially to try and hit all the Star carriers (there's a ZH flight in there which I'm missing and a TG 350 I wanna try)...

That's my reason for PTY as well. I have an apartment in MDE and I don't mind flying double connection, it's a bit of a smaller city, but I'd love to be able to maintain west coast bias. Aeromexico...

YVR-PTY (I'd actually prefer Copa flies this, but really I'd take either one)
YVR-BOG (selfishly, I know there's really no market for this one though)

Maybe not mileage run worthy, unless you're really tight to a threshold, which I can't imagine anyone would be this early in the year, BUT, a helluva price.

Great price for those of us in YVR as...

Which engine are you referring to? I've used the star alliance one and had some interesting routings, and I haven't really tried the Asiana engine that much cuz I don't really wanna pay their higher...

My limited checked baggage experiences at YYZ have been relatively positive. But if this IS a true post, send it to CBC and see if they post it. They seem to wanna bury AC whenever they have a...

Well no, because it's a question that pertains to the Asiana Mileage Club program. Etihad rules wouldn't necessarily be the same. For example AS mileageplan you can only fly 1 partner. So you can...

I'll give them a try tomorrow, but I'm not super hopeful. The one upshot to this program is that they don't levy surcharges on AC of all things. Whereas AC levies them in their own damn program...

No, because their US call center isn't open on weekends. The recording on the phone when I just called to test this said they're open 830am to 12 NOON, website says 2400, 0830-1200 would be pretty...

Yea, I'd probably say the conditions were a bit much. I might tell them I won't take a middle seat, but unless they can guarantee it, I'd have to decide if it was worth it or not, by either upping...

Sorry, I'm rambling now, but this was a little bit aside from my previous post.

So as I said I'm looking for MDE-BOG/PTY (it's a 1 stop flight)-IST-SHJ. On Nov 1 I see availability on the OZ...
