Aeroplan to Lot polish Debacle
« on: November 14, 2017, 06:04:13 PM »
Hi,

To anyone who can help on this.

We booked Lot Polish with aeroplan miles. 16 people in the shul - 55k miles per ticket in business. We got ticket numbers and all.

A month ago we booked. A week later we got new emails from aeroplan being on Lufthansa with a stopover.  We called aeroplan and they said Lot polish isnt honoring their ticket numbers. They ended up rebooking it claiming they are paying cash and called lot polish to confirm they have it on thier end. 3 days later we get new tickets from Aeroplan on lufthansa flights. After two weeks of back and forth they said they had a meeting with Lot Polish and there's nothing they can do. They gave 10k miles each compensation and stuck everyone in economy.

any advise?

Same question as on DDFB? Same answer. It was probably a glitch. Dont ever recall such availability with points on AC. This is a DoT issue.

We have ticket numbers. Doesnt that mean aeroplan is responsible?

You should do 16 separate DoT complaints.

16 tickets in business!

Nothing you can do here and 10K miles is not that much.

Anyway, even IF the DoT helps, LO only has 18 seats in J so highly unlikely that you'll all get onto the same flight.

No. You'll just be told that:
AC cant book LO.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
