Before transferring miles to Avianca to book biz ticket on Austrian (ORD-TLV), I wanted to find out how much lap child would cost.  Avianca says I need to book lap child thru Austrian; Austrian says I need to book it thru Avianca.  Neither willing to tell me the cost, either.  Anyone experience a similar issue and have a workaround to get an infant booked?  Thanks!
Usually booked by ticketing airline, in this case avianca
Option 1 HUCA
Option 2 conference call 2 airlines and make them work it out
Option 3 book a dummy revenue ticket with infant and have them attach infant to award reservation

I received the same $195 AF, but I am definitely earning based on the current points system, namely 4x MR on restaurants and supermarkets.
Have same thing on my personal gold, Just wasn't confirmed as an official status. Don't use BGR enough to know which point structure actually is applied

Just got a letter in the mail that they will be keeping my AF for the gold at $195 not raising it to $250. Anyone have the same?
Had On BGR. A rep told me I was grandfathered into the old card, old points multiplier system and old AF

Yes, if the offer is still there.
Is it likely to still be there?

I tried it for a Canadian insurance company and when the credit didn't post I messaged them. They replied that it isn't in US currency, therefore its not eligible. I replied that its not written in the terms that it must be US based. The reply was they will open an investigation and I should message them in a week.
Thanks, keep us posted

The 20% insurance does NOT have language for US insurance companies only. Can be used internationally as well
Any DP on it actually working internationally?

the amex blue business cash gives 2% back on all purchases as does the capitol one spark (another version gives 2x points). the chase ink unlimited gives 1.5% cash back, although those are really UR points so they have the potential to be worth more.
What categories are you spending 50k in?

2) what is the question?
question is "is it worth bringing car seat to gate instead of checking at counter, on the chance they will allow him to bring it aboard and put his lap infant in the car seat in an empty seat"

Tried the GB Pockit (original), but it was too lightweight, annoying to maneuver (2 handles instead of handlebar), and seat barely reclined (naps).

Switched to the City Tour, much happier overall.
city tour is carryon size?
I use the pockitt happily (you can hold it in the middle between handles)
Kids love it

Is it an overnight stop?
Tell them at the airport, That you really really need it, and they might check it to paris only, where you would pick it up at the baggage claim. It worked for me once, though it was 15 hours overnight. (there is a lot of walking till the baggage claim, be awre

option two: get travel stroller like yo-yo or GB pockit (much cheaper than yo-yo, but more basic)
