Congrats. That’s great news! I remember you discussing the separate flights a while back. Great that you can now travel together.Yippee - just booked YVR-HND-SYD on Feb 2 in business (seats just popped up today) - can fly home on same flights as MR LL (He took the single award seat 11 months ago). I was booked on AC/OZ via ICN - cancellation via phone went smoothly.
First tried the booking online using Safari and after the first 'proceed' it gave the dreaded error message - I almost gave up but decided to try Google Chrome and the booking went through. Now if I can just wind down all remaining LM points - it's just too hard.
I just thought i would let you all know that i have now cancelled these flights due to the Coronavirus. They kept saying that I had to pay the cancellation fee but after escalating it and waiting a few weeks all the points were back in my account.Successful booking via the screen shot method. Only took a couple of days
ICN via PEK to Mel for 2 via Bus class on Air China.
purchased 45,000 points at $675 USD used 35,000 points already in my account
Bought the tix in early Nov
I have heard that they aren't the greatest airline but i could not find any other options, wanted to use Thai but could not find any seats at the time of the booking
You can set it to English by using the "Idioma" button at the bottom of the login page.LM seems have updated their page and I can't change it to English anymore. Also can't figure out where to click to redeem flights.
Anyone fluent in Spanish can help?
Oh damn, I thought I would get the $ back - about $2, 500 I think. So perhaps it would be better for me to try and rebook for new dates next year?
I have read some reports that there is an on line functionality to request a refund - do it in writing following the email link on their website.Oh damn, I thought I would get the $ back - about $2, 500 I think. So perhaps it would be better for me to try and rebook for new dates next year?
I guess I need to do that on the phone...do you know if a LM award booking can be changed if you find new award availability?
OK thank you. Ah, I misunderstood @luxury-lizard!I have read some reports that there is an on line functionality to request a refund - do it in writing following the email link on their website.
If you wait until the operating flight is cancelled, you won't have to pay the $200 cancellation fee.
If you try and change, there are some pretty heavily limitations on what you can and can't change. Pretty much limited to dates. But there is a $150 fee for changes (USD).
So you might be better waiting until cancellation of the flight.
As luxe-liz pointed out, your 'pay' component will be converted to miles. So you won't get that money back.
Yes. The 'pay' component in effect buys you the remaining miles you are using for the award. So Those aren't lost. You'll get your $$ back (taxes etc). The only thing you probably won't get back is the $25 booking fee.
