Did you have an E-ticket number?
Is the flight actually canceled as in the plane isn't flying or is just your ticket that is canceled?
What was the reason for cancellation?

If you were properly  booked and held a confirmed ticket and this is a case of IROPS, then it is up to the airline to fix it and they should have relevant regulations.
If this was some messup  by the OTA that never issued the ticket or some other such problem then it is up to them to help you out.

Okay I need your help.  My wife needs to fly from tlv to the newark area for a medical issue with her dad.  She does not know the date of her return.  We have no points or status.  Is there a option of purchasing one way ticket at a reasonable cost or an open ended ticket or a round trip with not a huge change fee for the return.  If the round trip option which airline will have the  lowest change fee cost to change her return date.  She needs to end up in central jersey but I guess if jfk is an option or somewhere else on the east coast she can hop a short flight to newark.
All help is appreciated.

Well, many people have asked me what's the answer to the registration question. Though that doesn't take much creativity.
I was wondering about that: Why have a registration question at all? What can happen?

you can do online check in and the other party can no show. why is that a problem?
If someone is on standby and your partner doesn't show up, they can give the seat to someone else.

You can always buy an extra seat for yourself, just label it properly.
Not so easy IME.
Probably better to buy for someone else, do online check in and hope no one is on standby.

Has anyone managed to get the 3x to YUL? It appears that you may be able to get a price of $240 or so with a checked bag for the return if only you can get the flight to YUL to price properly.

Up In The Air / HOT! Direct flights NYC-MAD from $211 round trip!
« on: September 01, 2019, 05:31:57 AM »
Iberia and American Airlines have many dates selling for $247 and up for direct flights NYC-MAD.
The flights go all through the winter and well into spring. Latest flight departures are mid May.

Please note these are Basic Economy flights that don't include a checked bag. They do however include a carry-on. Regular economy is about $100 more per ticket.

You can check Google Flights to find dates that work for you and then book with American Airlines/Iberia/Expedia/Priceline etc'.

If purchasing the flights with UR points, you'd be paying as little as 16,500 points for a round trip ticket to Madrid and you'd still earn miles for the flight!

Here is how to get it even cheaper with hidden city:

Search for a round trip JFK-MAD and find cheap dates that work for you.
After you've got your dates, switch to multi city search.
Plug in the outbound and return as before.
In the third segment make the flight date the day after your return flight from MAD-JFK. Search for flights from NYC (make sure LGA and EWR are included) to BOS, PHL, MIA, YUL, YYZ.
You should be able to take another $15-50 off the total cost.


Cheapest I have seen so far was $211 for a round trip direct flight JFK-MAD!
