Thanks. I'm not a fan of the trend towards harder slimline seats, so I'd probably prefer a soft old 737-900 recliner to the neo's firmer new seat. The only question is whether a 73J would be likelier...

738 vs 73J vs 321 Biz?

From Istanbul to Frankfurt, I have the option of a 738 through Zagreb, a 321 to Nuremberg or Venice, or a 73J to Budapest.

Expertflyer shows the Nuremberg flight as a 32N. Is that an ex-Kingfisher...

Yes, the upgrade has cleared and the co-pay (& mileage) charged. If they don't clear on the new flight, I lose everything? That seems punitive, since an all-out award redemption costs barely more...

Co-payment Changes?

Hi folks, I can't for the life of me figure out what happens to the co-pay if my plans change. I'm confirmed in Biz from AKL-LAX in 2 weeks' time using miles. Now I need to change the date. The new...

Etihad credit on a Jet Airways flt #?

Hi -- I foolishly booked a paid Etihad business class flight as a Jet codeshare, assuming I'd credit it to AAdvantage. No dice.

Tons of frequent flyer programs let me credit Jet Airways flights....

Bummer. Thanks guys. I wish AA was more transparent about that.

To which program should I credit the miles: Etihad or Jet? Is either a clear winner (or a partner)?

Retrieving CX Ticket Info?

I was downgraded from First to Business on CX due to an equipment change in January. US Airways, which issued the ticket, annoyingly doesn't list the class of travel on their confirmation emails. So...

OP here -- I won't have luggage to interline. Sounds like as long as TG provides buggies for all F pax (and as long as I'm already checked in), I'll be okay? Thanks!

b) What does...
