Anyone that has some experience with Perth?

So it seems that UA tries to blame it on a THIRD PARTY software which caused these fares. They seem to think that this line will help them avoid the DoT rules. personally i think that this is a stupid approach on their end. The Dot won't care who caused them to display the wrong prices. I would argue that all the bookings were made from NON Denmark folks. That might help them.
It was indeed a 3rd party. This glitch had no connection with United. They were just the only generous airline that lets you choose any point of sale online, and you still fly out from any other country.
Because of IATA's exchange error, United should not be at fault for this.

And FYI, I did book myself several tickets. I just felt that United has all rights to cancel this time.

Am I the only one getting the Capthcha every 5 seconds today?

I've found that HUCA is sometimes required for LY flights w/ AA miles.
It's a simple confusion. LY biz is X class which is the Economy award class for all One World airlines. a lot of reps get confused with that.
I've yet to see a flight available in both, which an agent should say it's not available.

If there's space...
Qantas F doesn't sell out 98% of the time (due to the lack of discounted booking methods / award - upgrade space), especially on that route.
They do upgrade people last minute, but 24 hours prior, your chances are really good.

If QF F wouldn't be available. BA would likely put you on their own metal. They might even do that here in NY to avoid potential problems.

In any event, don't waste your time now with changes. Just arrive to the airport as an innocent passenger.

My 2C

Sounds like it's theoretically possible, but the question is, if I don't make the connection, would they rebook me in LHR on the next QF flight the following morning?
They will re-book you at the airport. No question about it.

You chances of US getting another carrier to open space is close to 0. Unless you have a few extra days, and you're ready to spend 30-40 hours on the phone.

QF would be an awesome partner
Not likely to happen.

If they come out in the open, and start comparing themselves to any other program, people will see their true face.

QF is the worst FF program out there.
Their partnership with EK didn't help them at all, especially now that they added YQ to all flights, and most places their saver flights are more expensive than EK standard.

So if they want to ensure that their ticket is still showing properly and hasn't been canceled due to some weird reason, checking on should do the trick?
If receipt comes up on you're good.

The ticket is LY to BKK and RJ on the return.
Could that be why?

AA tickets can usually be check-in online on
Sometimes when there is another airline on the ticket, especially when the departures is not ex-TLV it will give you a problem checking in.

Shokiach. In practice they're paying more than 1 teacher.
No kid is in school for more 8 learning hours (even the oldest children). In Chassish Schools the Rebbis get paid $20-25 an hour tops, which is not good, because then you don't always get the best quality...
But I think $35-40 is extremely nicely paid.

$40 x 8 x 5 x 50 = $80,000

That means that between all teachers combined, a class room has no reason to cost more than 80K a year.
Even if you double that (!!) you are still at 160K a year. How in the world are you getting to $300K?

And don't forget that all schools still have government programs etc...

I'm getting AF results with EF that I can't duplicate on AF or DL.
This happened to me last week as well. Never had this problem before.
EF is telling you that only the first leg is available, hence why you can't find it anywhere...
If you'd search SGN-CDG you'll find it on both DL and AF.

Lemme get this straight: instead of, say, NYC-CDG-TLV, you sold NYC-CDG, then searched CDG-TLV and sold it, and got an ADM for that?
I just recently got from AZ 400 EUR per person for selling Point to Point. Same scenario.

So what happend at the end?
They settled on expenses, replacement of the miles, plus some bonus points...
