Can I use the US number to detach an OC9 from a reservation without converting, or do I need to call the UK number to accomplish this?

It will make things difficult for very high demand periods. I was recently able to grab at releasae two J awards CGK-LAX just before Xmas. Two F were available same day. That sort of redemption...

In addition, HKG-DPS and DPS-HKG are particularly difficult segments to snag. They often become available only after all TPAC seats have disappeared. Worth broadening your horizons to include SIN...

Transpacific. So for instance, I recently booked two tickets near end of schedule from LAX to CGK. But searches showed no availability HKG-CGK.

Though I don't know about SIN, there's scant availability to other Asia destinations when married with TPAC segments. Nothing by itself that I've seen.

Isn't current end of schedule outside the booking window for the mistake fare? It's also right after New Year which from past experience is always a difficult time to book.

Incidentally, for...

FWIW, I've had good luck with AA and AS miles for a couple of days after New Year. Travel on these days seems less in demand. Then all seats disappear until after 1/12 or even 1/15.

In my experience, if JL shows availability, the seats will be there. I've had both BA and QF show phantom availability but never JL.

I haven't been monitoring this year, but in years past availability has always been quite scarce from mid-December until mid-January with the exception of xmas and Jan 1-3 or 4.

So I've been told. Unfortunately, all my eggs are in the AS and AA baskets. I need to diversify.

For this trip, I need to get to Manado, so for timing JL from LAX to SIN works well.

I'm 15 days out from departure, hoping to snag CX J or F out of LAX and pattern is similar or worse. Random PE release, very rare F, and absolutely no J. Have been monitoring with some diligence...

I think the restriction is for bookings that are solely intra-Asia. So long as booking includes a North America-HKG segment, you're okay.

I'm not sure if 1A is still limited to elites. I was able to select it for my (no status) wife on CX's site without any problem. In the past, this always required a call.

I'm not despondent, but would like the option. The loss of flexibility to upgrade was revealed (if you can call it that) only very close to 8/18, well after the time I selected my TP. Together with...

That's my plan. I imagine in a couple of months things will be more clear. If worse comes to worse, there's at least one new category 6 hotel, though not my first choice, I'd be happy with.

I don't see how any of this has anything to do with the ability of one party to a contract purporting to unilaterally alter and devalue the contract's agreed upon consideration.
