    Hyphenated Surname

    I'm attempting to book a reward flight which includes my grand-daughter who has a hyphenated surname. The online booking doesn't allow special characters in the name field. Etihad social media says to just use the two names, no hyphen, which "should be okay." Not exactly inspiring my...

    SYD-AUH F, AUH-FCO J: separate awards

    I'm planning a short trip to Rome next April using award flights. Have the return booked with Singapore using KF miles and a booking SYD-AUH in Etihad first which used up our remaining AA miles. Now I need to get us from AUH-FCO. Right now, there is no availability in business but there are...

    London Arrival: Gatwick vs Heathrow

    I'm looking at a choice of flights ex DXB, arriving either LGW or LHR 1pm-3pm. LGW is a marginally better connection but I've never flown to/from there. LHR on the other hand left a lasting impression (and not a good one.) We'll have a pick-up so transfers don't matter, unless the advice is...

    First First Experience: EK or QR?

    Next year we're ticking Flight in First off the bucket list. Currently have booked QR, SYD-CDG, using QFF points and was happy with this choice. But now an EK option has become available, same date, similar time, except with an extra stop (EK419 via BKK.) With the likelihood this trip may...

    Altitude Points for Air Canada?

    I have friends looking into flying Sydney-Vancouver with Air Canada. They have a stack of Altitude points and I'm wondering if there's any roundabout way of transferring them into AC Aeroplan miles. Does Altitude transfer to any of the hotel loyalty programs? Is worth looking into...

    I have a one-way flight on hold, booked on The fine print says I need to be a resident of the US. "If you are not a resident of the U.S., U.K., Canada or select countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, tickets must be purchased at an American Airlines ticketing location/airport...
