I noticed that tonight. I actually booked coach ticket with miles a few weeks ago for Jan 20 and return Jan 26. When I saw that now business is open for only 60000 points each way as opposed to the 120000 each way when I originally booked ticket I called airline but was told that you can't upgrade an award ticket, you have to pay $150 fee and start process all over. Any ideas how to avoid that?

They aligned with AA. (http://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2014/09/13/us-airways-changes-booking-classes-line-american/) Now U is a business class award.

BA has to be done over the phone. The kind woman who I spoke to by mistake charged me 330.80 instead of 448.80

Yup, That's pretty funny for 90k . 10 minutes ago it was showing business "available" but on the bottom of it said "only 0 seats left". So I had to call in to get it ticketed.

They deducted the full miles for business, and my hold says business. I'll try selecting seats.

Honestly I'm not sure.

I guess that would be ideal.
Otherwise maybe open up 4 F seats on BA for us?  Though BA YQ is more than that.

Didn't bother with CLE-PHL.

I've never flown BA.
I was booked on BA F for our RTW, but our DFW-LHR-AMS-HKG-HKT flight was cancelled so they rebooked us on CX F DFW-SFO-HKG-HKT.

Boldbeast is by far the best. I have gone thorough literally every other one in the play store, and nothing came even close. It even maintains recording in all situations even going into the cars Bluetooth, then exiting, then going to in ear Bluetooth.

I use tapeacall. Premium version costs a few bux and it only works for outgoing calls, but it also works under all circumstances and the quality is great. Not sure how the others work but it conferences you in on a recorded line .

If booking from another account's miles in the end, will I need to release the hold to pay for it? I can't just pay for the held reservation from another account, right?

If there are not enough points in the acct you originally held it with, then you shouldn't have an issue having them change it. Just tell them 'your brother in law' is booking it for you...

Thought the conversation was about holding US AIR with AA

-1 I held a BA with AA advantage ticket over a month in advance of the flight,  I canceled the hold in order to get another 5 days and Poof, it disappeared and hasn't returned,  almost 2 weeks already, and I've been checking every hour since .

Make up your mind, good sir.

Make up your mind, good sir.
I've held BA with AA in the past, Hold almost always went back to inventory,  besides the BA flight from 2 weeks ago, thought inventory regardless of the carrier would be the same risk, if not for the BA flight not going back to inventory  I would have agreed, unless USair works differently

Hi, I held two one ways today stupidly instead of a roundtrip on US in J using AA miles. i need to add a lap infant and it is >$500 more to do it as two one ways! i should have thought of this but i was in a rush.

they cant join the pnrs and there is no more availability on either of my flights to add on to the other one way.

i read on a flyertalk thread that it is theoretically possible to put the infant on a third PNR and link it to the two one ways but no agent is willing to do it for me on the phone.

i tried twitter too and they said they cant help.

does anyone have any suggestions?
thanks for your help

Would it be possible to move one to the other account and book it together? that way if i need to cancel would be only $175 instead of $175 x 2 (am i right about this?)

find someone who you trust and book them a regular ticket and add the infant to that. You can offer someone a discounted trip or a free trip. May be worth it.

the brake-down is 700 for BA YQ and taxes 100 for AA tax and about 750 for AA and 200 for BA to add infants so total for infants will be about 950 a lot  less then a RT on Y beside i'm not sure it will work even if i find someone too risky

How is it 25k difference? Business is 60k and First is 90k. No?

200 for BA to add infants
Isn't BA 10% of Avios? So should only be 6,000 avios.

6k x2 is 12k and i think there is some tax beside the points CMIIW (12k x1.2=144)

it means that it still needs to go through an office in Texas that manually issue the tickets.
is there a infant on the ticket?

A bit OT, but my wife also just flew US and she was surprised to found out when she boarded the plane that the re-fitted A330's do not have bassinets in business. The new Envoy suite is pretty nice though. 1-2-1 configuration in business almost makes up for the rude flight attendants

if there are empty seats and you have an approved car seat they will generally allow it.

Big YMMV in J/F for that.
Buy the seat if you don't want to hold your kid for 12 hours.

Please Help if you can
I have 5 U tickets on hold TLV-PHL since the 19th They somehow extended the hold until tonight which I thought would save me from having to purchase the missing miles from aa (5 tkx @ 67.5 =337500 I only have 270 but I transferred immediately on the 19th from spg and they are still not there 9 business days later (same name on both accounts aa&spg).  They tell me it can take 10, any way around having to purchase miles from aa inorder to secure these tkx?  any ideas??

Asked to extend. Buy miles from AA. Or buy miles from someone else. No other way.

your best bet would be to beg for another extension. other options will be pricey.
you might have to call several times though to find the right person. explain your story and ask for mercy...

i've heard it could take anywhere from a day to more than a week from SPG to - AA to go through, but for you, it doesn't matter what regular transfer times are, as you need the miles today, and since it hasnt posted until now, chances are small it will post tonight.

having dividend miles won't help you.

transferring from family is cheaper than buying (assuming they are willing to just give you the miles for free), but still AA will charge you for the transfer.

Sorry dan I'm not sure how that is done. How does the other fam member book the remainder if it is in my account?
Also I don't know if it has any bearing  but they live at a different address, same last name.
thx

Call them up and tell them you want to book the award with miles from two separate accounts

like he said, as long as theres 67.5k in the other family mem account you can have them book one of the tickets from that account.
in terms of spg, its usually a quicker transfer, but it seems from ft that right now theyre having some transfer issues.

thank for all your help.
I thought it was more complicated because AA is very weary of people selling miles/tkx so i thought that could not be done.
Strange thing is as soon as my brother booked the 1 ticket with his miles, about 10 minutes later the miles posted from AA
almost like they maybe were holding out so people who took advantage of last weeks U fare issues would lose their hold before the transfer. a little far fetched but ....
