Aegean Air award ticket booking
« on: November 14, 2017, 11:28:55 PM »
I understand that you can book reward tickets on United through Aegean Air with Aegean miles. I'm hoping to book SFO>TLV that way, as they call for less miles than united.

However, when I try to search for award ticket availability on the Aegean website, I'm met with the message that I don't have enough miles. That's true, I don't want to transfer the miles to Aegean until I know they have the flight I need for the amount of miles I want. How can you see Partner reward ticket availability/amounts w/Aegan without having to transfer miles over first?

Whatever star alliance availability united displays Aegean should have access to + they allow holds, although transfers could take up to two weeks to go through

Aegean has high fuel surcharges. Call them in Greece for availability.

They don't, and besides, there's no YQ for United.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

They charge YQ when it is charged except on AC anf UA (which doesnt charge YQ at all). Takes about 9 days for SPG transfers and they xannot hold res.

Dan posted somewhere in response to my question somewhere that you can hold tickets for 2 days with Aegean, as well.
