    Air France and KLM awards on the way?

    Just did a search for award availability for CDG-LIS (for travel on 1 September), and since this afternoon Air France and KLM options have appeared. Currently I can't choose them and proceed to the next screen (it errors out). Further searches (e.g. CDG-HKG) show the same. Not sure if it's...

    Being bumped - less obvious downside of award bookings

    Late last year I was booked into business with QF on MEL-ADL using BA Avios, and was downgraded at the gate to economy, being left to chase up a refund for the difference with British Airways. In my most recent booking, my partner and I were bumped from a MEL-CNS QF flight the night before...

    Add flight to AAdvantage booking

    Hi I am hoping someone has experience with a similar situation to this. I currently have an AA award booked for NRT-SYD-MEL on JL for next year. We will now actually be coming from ICN beforehand. Because ICN and NRT are in the same award zone, I know the extra ICN-NRT flight can be added...
