    I booked some USDM award tickets for some friends at the end of last year for travel SYD-AMS in June and return in July. All in J.

    Good ol' Thai has done a schedule change and the flight out of SYD is now aftet the connecting flight from BKK. I was going to put them on a QF flight to BKK, but was told by more than one operator that they are not able to mix and match oneworld and star alliance on the same booking.

    We can get them on a flight to connect to the BKK-FRA (Thai) flight but it is SYD-SIN-BKK (SG) all in Y. My friends are in their late 60's and really aren't up to flights in Y.

    So my dilema is possibll booking a whole new itinerary on oneworld.

    So far I have put on hold. All in J.

    2/6 SYD-NRT QF21 @21:30
    3/6 NRT-LHR BA6 @ 10:50
    3/6 LHR-AMS BA? @ 18:00

    I need to get them home around the 15 July but cannot find anything.

    Is anyone able to help me find a suitable itinerary to get them home.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Flight Map:

    A couple of options, that may require a few extra $;
    1) Would they be adverse to paying $99 for a domestic flight to BNE (if US DM allows open jaws or whatever it is called for different origin and return city)? Then pick up connection BNE-BKK-FRA, or
    2) Would they be OK to overnight in BKK (novotel, right at the airport)? UA are showing availability BKK-AMS on BR, leaving lunchtime on 3 June, their product is the new CX-style all aisle access fully flat seats, superior to TG's product.

    Thanks for the reply and suggestions.

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to use the BR flights or some other Austrian Airlines business flights I found.

    The best I could manage were economy from SYD-SIN-BKK.

    Bloody Thai Airways..........and the worst thing about it was absolutely no notice from US either............If I'd have known earlier then I may have been able to organise something a bit better. I guess sh@t happens.

    Anyway, all re-booked and re-ticketed now.

    I will make sure I keep a close watch on this until they go.
