Up In The Air / Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy Award
« on: August 15, 2019, 02:45:50 PM »
Is this bookable on Delta? Should it show up on Delta's website if it's available on Virgin Atlantic?

I started this thread in the wrong place and mods haven't moved it, so I am posting my new question here.
I have two options and both require approximately the same amount of driving.
Option 1:                                                         Option 2:
LAS                                                                  LAS
Hoover Dam/Lake Mead                                     Grand Canyon
Zion/Bryce (one day only)                                  Lake Powell/Antelope
Grand Canyon                                                   Bryce
Sedona                                                             Zion
PHX                                                                  LAS

What do you recommend and why?

Trip Reports / Las Vegas-Phoenix Four day Road Trip
« on: July 24, 2019, 03:09:27 PM »
I have tickets on hold with AA flying into LAS Sun eve and out of PHX Thurs night.
I would like to do Grand Canyon, Bryce, Antelope Canyon and Sedona.
We are two adults no kids but pretty set on minyan. Flagstaff should have a daily minyan our dates in August.
Does it make sense to spend first night in Las Vegas and the next two nights in Flagstaff? Last night in PHX probably. I know it's extra driving up to Bryce and we could skip it, if it gets too much. But does it sound doable to those of you who've done it?

What happens when you put an award on a five day hold at 23 days out? Can you pay for it at the original price or does the fee kick in automatically?

I have an AC flight for an hour or so from now that's delayed 1 hour 15 minutes at this point. I am not planning to take the flight. Do I need to be checked in to get the refund due to extended delay or cancellation due to weather?

Up In The Air / Insuring Award Flights
« on: July 14, 2016, 01:48:24 PM »
What's the best way to get insurance against cancelled/missed flights when connecting in Europe on two separate award tickets?  PHL-MAD on AA and MAD-TLV on Elal? Passenger only has AA credit card. Does it help to pay with someone else's credit card? Or should they purchase insurance separately?

Online check-in says they are going to need volunteers to be bumped. I actually wanted to switch to tomorrow's flight, but it also is overbooked. What's the best strategy to get the highest bump offer? Should I volunteer at check-in or wait til the gate?

Up In The Air / Help with United Ticket Booked with Capitol One
« on: February 16, 2015, 02:50:33 PM »
I am trying to help my sister who booked a ticket with Cap1 points and cash for last summer. They cancelled due to the war and did not rebook before August.

A-United refuses to waive the change fees. Does anyone have a contact who can help?

B-They cannot fly within the year of booking. Is there ever any way to extend the ticket due to the war..

C-Cap1 is actually very sympathetic but says that it's united's call. Anyone have a Cap1 contact who can do something drastic? Like maybe reinstate their points so they can rebook?

This is their first trip to E"Y in more than twenty- five years and they are parents to a large mishpacha, I would hate for them to lose $2500.00 without a fight!

« on: August 29, 2013, 02:49:33 PM »
I am trying to get the price to drop on a Delta ticket. I tried ORD and IAH and WAS, but all it did was raise the price. Does anyone know if there are any tricks to getting it to work on Delta?

Up In The Air / Best award program for Multi-City Trip?
« on: April 15, 2013, 02:04:56 PM »
We are looking to travel from NYC area to TLV at the end of July, returning before Succos. We would like to maximize miles and stop in several places on the way there and back. Maybe hitting Hawaii andBangkok or New Zealand in one direction and Europe in the other. Is American the best option or is there something else that would work out to a better use of  miles? Probably in coach.
