Yes, it took a while this morning, but this afternoon I've not been able to get anything beyond inputting the dates and times and locations I want to travel...have tried several times over the last few hours

Maybe it's the weekly tues fare reload that is taking longer than expected....or some $20 fare to SIN that we didn't catch

Got a message when I tried just now saying something about "Reservation System Temporarily Unavailable - There seems to be a brief interruption in communications with the Airline Computer Reservation System."

I had a booking show as unable to confirm, and so I called. They said the system was hosed today, and they were having to go in and manually complete every transaction. They were cheery about it, however.

Bonus round: Confirmed all 4 segments for myself and S.O. to SIN in March. Plus double miles.
