Our long haul was ticketed immediately.There does seem a pattern…
small or inconsequential awards… ticketed immediately. For example Qantas domestic, or US domestic. Anything ‘small’.
anything ‘big’… like finding a long haul premium award… well that needs closer examination to make sure no one is gaming the system. Or if they’re not gaming it, how can we make sure such good value redemptions don’t happen again?
Of course if you’re CL or P1, you are important. Your tickets get issued instantly. (Really, premium awards should only be available to CL or P1, and we even hold them back so you can ask for them to be created and ‘released’.)
