Have you rec'd e-ticket from QF yet?Thanks got there by clearing cookies, thanks too MEL_Traveller.
It tells me there is a holding/waiting period until the date of my first QF flight and not all info is available, contact the booking airline so no option for seating. At least not yet.
Not sure. I got what was called a travel document. Had all the flights on listed as confirmed and sent from amadeus.comHave you rec'd e-ticket from QF yet?
I have 2 identical award bookings (split 2x2 in family).
Received e-ticket for only one at first, and could select seats on JL.
The booking without the e-ticket issued yet was showing the 'holding/waiting' on JL website, and no seat selection option

OK, after multiple calls and some manual handling, finally managed to get this issued:
MXP-HKG-SYD-AKL (Will likely no show the last leg)
34.5K miles and around $1600 NZD in taxes.
If you don’t have a document with an e-ticket number on it (it will start with 081-), then you should call and ask for it to be ticketed.Not sure. I got what was called a travel document. Had all the flights on listed as confirmed and sent from amadeus.com
Thanks. I am waiting for a call back to sort out a couple of minor wrinkles so I'll ask then.If you don’t have a document with an e-ticket number on it (it will start with 081-), then you should call and ask for it to be ticketed.
There are numerous tales of woe on this forum regarding award seats being lost from unticketed itineraries. Once lost, there’s no guarantee (and often no hope) of getting them back again...
Trying to get a QF flight for my daughter where she will get a seat allocation with a bassinet (flight changes are locked for me) and trying to sort out why I cannot do seat allocations on all our QF flights. All strange as before the help desk made some changes we could do this.What sort of minor wrinkles?
Regarding seat selection, I had similar issues recently that I finally got sorted by using MMB on various OW airline websites. I usually find RJ is the most reliable site followed by MH.Post by @Mr H had me keen make my own and thank the community for the endless knowledge you all provide. I'm usually just a lurker and the info helped me lock in a J trip for myself and SO last month for the 2nd half of 2022.

I have chosen to fly with Iberia as it significantly reduced the taxes and fees compared to BA.
However I am having some issues trying to select seats for my parter on their flights. By logging into RJ, I was able to select seats for all our flights but was only able to select seats for myself on IB flights.
Trying to sort this out has started to make me doubt my decision to fly with them. It is almost impossible to contact IB. I was only able to get through with a twitter DM with a response a month later, which didnt solve the problem. I get that its a first world problem having issues sorting out our seats but im now more so concerned about how reliable they will be and how Id get in contact with them if we ran into urgent issues.
Can anyone that has had IB on their OW award provide any insight into their experience with them. Also, has anyone run into seat selection issues with them and how were they sorted?
I'm planning my second OWA. This time I'm aiming for 3 vacations, starting outside of Australia so I can return twice (one stopover in MEL, the other in SYD).
I believe I should choose a starting point that
a) is easily accessible from Australia with a cheap flight
b) would reduce the overall taxes payable
From reading this thread, I see Manila, Auckland and Bali have been used.
What others would you recommend trying?
I learned recently (with help from this thread) that you can get the eTicket numbers from the AY and QR websites (and others apparently) by logging in with the booking reference.If you don’t have a document with an e-ticket number on it (it will start with 081-), then you should call and ask for it to be ticketed.
