No they just wont let you on the flight.
Can't he just walk up to the AC ticketing desk?

Looks like Delta and AA are also 10%.

So is AC the only exception that offers flat fare?

It has to do with the ticketing carrier, not the operating carrier.

Culling from FT threads which may/may not be up to date:
Air Canada ($50 Y, $100 J, $125 F flat fee)
BA (10% of the miles) (+taxes?)
BMI (taxes)
Finnair (taxes)
Lufthansa (taxes)
SAS (taxes)
Qantas (free)
Seems like airlines that charge you fuel surcharges give you a break on infant tickets;)

I booked a ticket with BA miles on AA from JFK - LAX and BA wanted 10% of the miles, so I booked the tickets without the infants and later called AA and added the infants for free.

Of course they added them for free, that's a domestic flight.  They don't even need a ticket.

Just booked with flying blue miles a ONE WAY delta flight. I called later to add the infant and they told me it costs 300$ for the infant (10% of $airfare).. I told them i can just purchase a ticket for chpr for the infant (using points) and we came to an arrangement that we made a fake return flight (went onto Delta.com and found the lowest usage of miles  for a certain day and figured it would be the chpst price) and in the end it cost the infant 100$. Was this the best way to go about sumthin like this? And the agent told me if i call up after ive flown and tell them im not using the "return" flight i will get back airport taxes from the infant...

A friend of mine is flying to aussi using AA miles. Flying Qantas. When he asked about INF they said about $600.

He called me and I got it for him for $224

+1 to travel agents ;)

I actually didn't book that ticket for the child because I don't know that 'in' yet, but I know it can be done (my boss did it) and only a travel agent can do that.

Most travel agents are not so interested (if they know how to do it) to do just this. Usually they want you to book another ticket as well so they ca make some money.

Anyways just putting this on the table for people future needs.

About a business clad. Ticket if anyone can tell me a rate they got with Qantas and dates (if the flight is in the future) I'd be glad to post a price we can get.

Or if you would like to do a sample one give me the dates and qoute and I'll let you know ours :)))

I priced out once an infant on Economy using AA miles for $750.
That's ridiculous!!
Wondering how a travel agent can add a child on an award ticket....
