any chance i can get B6 to change the first name on an itinerary ticketed in december?
If not, it's no different than ever using someone else's ticket...
They would change it if you pay the change penalty + difference in fare
Meaning cancel it and rebook it. I've had agents claim they are unable to hold it at the lower fare for the duration of the reticketing process (which was probably due to agents incompetence, although I'm not sure).
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Not sure I understand you, but most airlines don't allow to change names on tickets, JetBlue does allow

I've had agents claim they are unable to hold it at the lower fare for the duration of the reticketing process (which was probably due to agents incompetence, although I'm not sure).

Low fare at time of change?

Will AA allow me to put two awards on hold if I would only be able to book one of them but not both with the miles I currently have in my account?

you don't need to have miles in your account to put a booking on hold

+1

You don't even need to give them your AAdvantage # to put flights on hold (for example if you're not sure which account you will book the flights out of).

A friend booked tickets using CSR UR points. He was adding an infant, so he had to book by phone.

They undercharged by a significant amount, and didn't add a fee for the lap child.

The question is, how can he make sure that it is ticketed and booked properly, and that he won't have any issues when he gets to the airport? (the reservation does show up on the airline website)

He can, and will, but it's SAA, who's reps are the epitome of incompetance, cluelessness and misinformation. The term "DROPR" was probably made up because of them.

when looking up the reservation there should be an option either to email summary or view receipt.

My brother just flew TLV to ORD on AA and had no wifi first leg (elal) which wasn't a surprise. Second leg was AA from LHR to ORD and I set him up with my free passes for gogo. Apparently they switched the wifi to Panasonic and gogo doesn't work. Is this a new thing, or am I just way out of it? Is this a temporary thing? Gogos site implies they are still on AA flights...
