Since I have 0 experience with DL awards, maybe someone here can help a bit.
I have two awards in Asia with China Southern and China Airlines booked for August. Due to the wife being pregnant, we won't be able to take the trip. I'm prepared to throw away the miles since I'm not willing to pay $600 redeposit fees for a lousy 35000 miles. The China Southern trip has a 15 min schedule change which I know doesn't allow me to cancel for free. Delta told me pregnancy is not an acceptable reason to get the redeposit fee waived. Does anyone know if I HUCA enough that I will find an agent who will at least waive the fees for the first trip for me? I work at an airport so will station agents be able to better help me? Any chance at all to somehow get around the second trips fees?
Keep HUCAing. Tell them a doctor doesn't allow you to travel if that is necessary

So what do you suggest for future searches?
For an AV ticket? NH, EF, AV?

UA shows Avianca availability but cant book on UA. Phantom. AC shows that there are flights available i.e. the calender isnt white but no flights show up at all.

ETA UA supervisor was able to book it.
Btw for the future AC has major issues with AV, so they're of no help in this case

You are correct.
I was mixing up the free checked bag from UA CC.
I have not familiar with the free carry on 'waiver' that comes with having the CC and booking basic econ

I wish LH would have a good flight to connect with SQ 25/26

That's unfortunate, their language is very unclear about this and actually implies the opposite.
Yes I have had many arguments with check in reps about this.
how does their language imply the opposite?

Yes they say they don't want to have a relationship with you anymore. I do not know of anyone who was told a more specific reason.
I was told specific reasons!!

A few pages ago I wrote my story outlining this

Tried booking a simple domestic reward flight and got error message, called up and they said my account is being audited and I need to send in my driver's license. I just did through the comment section as per rep suggestion and she said I need to wait a few days. Anyone have this before?

FWIW I never sold miles but I did do PGGMs and, when I booked dummy flights I used the wrong bday on myself. I have a hunch this is what caused it - booking flights with different birthdays for myself even though they were all cancelled ultimately. Thoughts?
Please update us what happens. good luck

I'm surprised that everything was not closed. Usually chase closes all accounts.  If they close for a credit related risk they give you 30 days to get ur points out.  Chase will never tell you why they closed your accounts.
-1 in the shutdown letters they told me why as well as over the phone when I called and asked why

yes you get a free bag you do not need to use the card. The only airline that makes you use the card is UA
and VX
I specifically don't want the basic economy, although do UA cardholders still get a carry on bag even if booked through somewhere other than UA?
Yes as long as you paid with your UA card. In the case of amex travel pay with points, thats impossible

CX is only 50K AS in J OW from NA, not 62.5K

I just booked

If you're going to post report at least link to the original post...
I was shown it now

In the CC thread.

I will let the mods delete my post if they see fit.

As per a manager there, being as they are based in Canada they are not subject to US DOT rules.

he should read the first sentence

Do they charge on all airlines? Is the YQ alot ?
Aegean does not charge fuel surcharges to fly on Air Canada or United.

The other airlines they charge standard
