NT: I booked my family on UA to TLV and booked a lap ticket for my infant. I called to change infant ticket to a seat, and they advised I need to purchase full fare ticket at today's price (over $2000 on those flights!). Any way around this?

Well if you want to buy a seat there’s no way around “buying the seat “

Do I get a refund on the infant lap ticket, or can the price of that go towards the seat?

I have TLV-NYC booked with IB in J (IB avios on IB metal) as 2 separate bookings, one for TLV-MAD and another for MAD-JFK a day later. What i didn't realize was that in regard to adding an INF i just made things a lot more expensive.


While if you book TLV-JFK in one booking you will pay 10% of the revenue for for INF which is about $246 (revenue is $2,460). However now that i have to separately add the INF to 2 bookings i now have to pay 10% of TLV-MAD which is $153 (revenue is $1,530) and also 10$ of MAD-JFK which is $635 (revenue is $6,350 :-[ ).


Making me pay $788 to add the INF as a lap infant. (No more availability to buy a seat in J)


Does anyone have experience with this situation?




If a TA books this as a INF for TLV-JFK (as one trip which would only cost me $246) would IB then allow me to attach the INF to our bookings though we don't have TLV-JFK booked as one booking?
Update:
I booked the infant with @Chaikel Travel and the first phone call to IB did not work. All they were willing to do was write a note that i'm traveling with the infant. But in that case i wouldn't be able to get a bassinet. And i also risk running into issues at the airport.


Then i called the call center in Spain and the lady very nicely added the infant to my booking one leg at a time and got bassinets for both flights.


Thanks @a mirrer for your help.

correct. If SQ tries charging (not saying that they will) you can just book without the infant and call UA to add after for free

Planning to book NYC-TLV on LX J with an infant, United is quoting $384 for the infant, which I assume is around 10% of fare

If I booked this with LH miles, how much will they charge for the infant?

No 10%, just some taxes and fees (not sure which ones).

Another option is AC (165k RT), no YQ and infant is just 100cad in J.

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

I am wondering if it will be the same taxes and fees as adult or much less?

Just show up at the airport and they’ll add it there.
