:D This site is just awesome. Now I need to learn a fourth language to understand abrev's. but I'll get there. I speak ausie, yank, swimming pool speak and now learning flying speak. I've just looked up my booking on one of the sites previously mentioned. I discovered the ta has booked two sep. flights 19 min's apart departing from DFW to LAX. Both bookings show not confirmed. When I look at my Qantas iternary, it shows only one and matches my iternary and ticketing from ta. Do i need to panic (more than I already am). :( cheers, trish

Hi Trish,

I would not worry a great deal. Sounds like your TA put two bookings into the system waiting for a seat to open up in the fare class you have been booked into.

One has opened up and you have been confirmed via your ticketing and QANTAS website iternary. It has happened to me previously and I had no problem at all. Basic worst case situation is the second flight wonders why you haven't turned up :)

This should correct itself in the near future. If you are really worried contact the airline involved (e-mail will be good enough) and let them know of your concerns. Make sure you give they details of the confirmed seat as well.

As for the abrevs I'm still learning them myself, especially on some INT places!

As mentioned above, this is not unusual when you are waitlisted for a flight. In order to waitlist, the TA has to book you on an alternate flight with "confirmed" status. If the waitlist successfully clears, you will then have 2 confirmed flights and the TA will then be contacted by the airline and asked which one to cancel.

If you are concerned, I recommend calling the TA and asking. They should be able to explain the exact circumstances.

By the way, when flying LAX-DFW I always look for the 767 operated flights. Much more comfortable than the MD80 flights, especially in first class.
