Title: Aegean Air award ticket booking
Post by: ninjaleh 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.

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.

this is so cool!

first observations:

works on their app too

searching TLV-NYC
firstly it looks like X went up to 30k ow, seeing 45k in J is just laughable. very easy to navigate & best of all by not clicking on pay now I was able to create a free hold!

very very cool

How much miles did you have in your account? I'm wondering what the minimum is to be able to search. Does award space match up what United/Aeroplan see?
Title: Re: Aegean Air award ticket booking

I have 60k in the account.

Availability matches with ua & yq is the same as sq & m&m

You should get whatever the operating airline gives.

Is that a yes?
 Probably best to look online and see if he can find any info or contact the airline directly.

I don't think he understood your question. It's probably a glitch. I don't think it actually allows booking "First class"
