I booked it on the day so I wouldn't need to pay for the infant ticket if it didn't work out  and yes it was ua metal

So why not call UA and have it attach, even on day of?

if the baby would have been attached by lh it most likely wouldn't have been an issue, the issue was most likely the communication between SHARES and Amadeus

I assume he had tkt# for INF, so I don't know how complicated it could have been.

Aren't infant fares fully refundable?

If i book an award ticket (AA) round trip, but one way is coach and the other is business, does anyone know how they price out that 10%? is it of the J fare, or the Y?

Seems infant costs for CX is 25% ex-USA

Does that mean my best booking option for ORD-HKG-TLV would be just booking an extra ticket with AS?


ETA can I even fly with an infant in F on the 77W and J on the A350?
BUMP
Very curios as well.

I have TLV-NYC booked with IB in J (IB avios on IB metal) as 2 separate bookings, one for TLV-MAD and another for MAD-JFK a day later. What i didn't realize was that in regard to adding an INF i just made things a lot more expensive.


While if you book TLV-JFK in one booking you will pay 10% of the revenue for for INF which is about $246 (revenue is $2,460). However now that i have to separately add the INF to 2 bookings i now have to pay 10% of TLV-MAD which is $153 (revenue is $1,530) and also 10$ of MAD-JFK which is $635 (revenue is $6,350 :-[ ).


Making me pay $788 to add the INF as a lap infant. (No more availability to buy a seat in J)


Does anyone have experience with this situation?




If a TA books this as a INF for TLV-JFK (as one trip which would only cost me $246) would IB then allow me to attach the INF to our bookings though we don't have TLV-JFK booked as one booking?

Not this exact situation, but I've done an infant on united OW and I've called up several times. Sometimes they'll quote me what appears to be 10% of half a rt, and sometimes 10 of OW. In that case the OW was higher, so I benefited from (what appeared to be) the rt estimate. The wrinkle in that story is they actually charged my card closer to the 10% of the ow - about 200 higher than was quoted to me on the phone. They are being very difficult about the refund.

it shouldn't be an issue as the baby will be ticketed on both legs. maybe have a ta issue a ticket and call and try to attach it to one booking at a time and see if it works and if not have the ta void the ticket.

Is there a bigger chance of this working in the airport?


I'm debating whether to try this now or have a TA issue the ticket within 24 hours of my flight in order to try this at the checkin counter.

Why not try not and if it doesn't work try again 24 hours before
