Ticketed about 30 hours before the flight, but only purchased adult ticket about 5 days out.

Just another data point on another award ticket using SQ miles on Star Alliance metal (in this case a mix of LX and UA with UA as overwater carrier. SQ again could not book an infant ticket because they could not find a base fare. UA agent was able to do it pretty easily once I insisted that SQ could in no way do it.

So, it seems SQ cannot issue Star Alliance infant tickets for their award tickets (unless perhaps SQ is part of the itinerary)...

Any data points of successful SQ issued infant tickets for *A flights?

Were they able to actually issue it? Did it include any SQ legs?
I am guessing that it depends on whether their ticketing office can sell a cash ticket. Maybe some routes/airlines are in their system and others aren't.

Was entirely TK. Anything they can ticket as an award they can ticket as revenue

That's true in theory.
I'm looking for data points on issued tickets. Did they quote you or actually issue the ticket?
And when was this?

Does anyone know about booking United metal infant award through Aeroplan. United agents are telling me that aeroplan did not issue the ticket correctly, Aeroplan says they did. I searched the thread and found another case like this. Any advice would be appreciated.

I don't know about your particular issue but it's free to cancel the infant with Aeroplan. Cancel the infant, get refunded and book it again. If there's another adult with you, try to put the infant under the 2nd adult's ticket.

Did you get an email from Aeroplan with the infant eticket information?

Iíve seen where they added the infant name, but didnít actually process the ticket (causing issues).

Ticket number doesn't always transmit. If you have a ticket number provide that to UA they should attach

So I called back United again just to see if anything changed. The rep told me that she sees the lap infant on reservation but she mentioned it was booked differently than United would book it. So infant is not attached to a specific adult but heís on the reservation. Will that be a problem that heís not attached to an adult?

Hi everybody,

I would like to book my wife a business class seat from Europe to NYC on BA for next July. I can use either 75k QF miles or 61k CX miles to book the BA flight (my pref is on CX as the miles are expiring early next year). My question then is, which of those two programs should I use in order to get the lowest cost lap infant ticket booked? or does it not make a difference as I ought to call BA? As this will be the first ever lap infant award I am booking (yay!) this is a wholly new world for me. Cheers!

They both claim to charge 10% miles [cxcan be  up 2 25%] the question is what taxes and fees are added for the infant.
