I wonder what's happening with this maintenance window? Been going on since at least 6AM EDT.

I just checked in for 3 of my flights for tomorrow with no problem and printed out my b/p's!. This notice was on there last night @ 10 p.m. PDT.

Curious as well at what they are doing -- maybe they are actually improving performance of ticketing or something (wishful thinking I know).

Somewhat coincided with statements finally being processed, so maybe has something to do with that?

Maybe but I feel like it has to do with something bigger. When they turned over the statements in the past (even on CO), they never had maintenance notifications.

The message box is gone now, but when I tried to SDC my EWR-BOS flight from 5:30 to 7:30 or even 9:55, it wants an add-collect of $646 as a 1K!!! I'm going to try calling next....

Is there space in the fare class?

I still have it when I look at my MP account page. I tried yesterday to get 25,000 lost miles re-instated but the rep said it couldn't be done until maintenance is done. Does any know what the maintenance is?

FYI, I've finally noticed a difference (other than MP statements coming out): They seem to have updated the flight change tool, at least as I'm seeing it.

I really prefer to use the flight change tool to do SDC (rather than the app/kiosk/OLCI SDC tools) because it lets you specify the new routing more specifically. (There are lots of permissible alternatives that the other tools might or might not show you, depending on your luck.) The problem has been that any given search using the flight change tool would result in a random collection of flights, so you would have to do the search multiple times. And it would often just give up and hit you with an error message.

Now, it seems to be showing me a wider set of flights, and not pooping out. They also got rid of the selection for ow/rt/multi, and it just lets you add legs (like in a multi search). I'm happy.
