So would you recommend to book a smaller room but with the sunset view?
How many people will be in the room? Do you feel you really need the suite?

I think we were recommending booking into a normal OWB room and then emailing to ask for a sunset view. Maybe even try asking for a suite!

Booked beach and got sunset.
I think it really depends on Status and availability.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

IMO just book a normal OWB and email them asking for what you want. Or you could email them prior to booking. Start with asking for sunset and maybe even just flat out ask for room 535 and see what they say. I would also tell them you’re considering other hotels.

What’s so special with room 535?

Is it a new policy  or is there any reason I am not able to get aeroplan to piece together a MLE-AUH AUH-JFK or LAX flight on EY? Tried HUCA and all agents seem to have no reason why they can't piece it together but they say that when they chose one segment they are suddenly not able to see the other. Even when I book the segment they can't see and ask them to piece on the segment they can see as available that previously available segment disappears.

I had all sorts of married segment issues with EY.
In the end I had success booking AUH-JFK and then adding MLE-AUH after ticketing.

This was recently? Have tried that without any luck. Did it take some HUCA or did it seem like a simple process for them? How long after booking first segment did you call back in to add the second? Also, any idea if I were to book AUH-JFK would I be able to add a third segment JFK-LAX?

Didn't Aeroplan only add EY as a partner this summer?

I booked it on the way home from maldives -- much worse experience then qatar - both in business class.

EY was booked using aeroplan

I had a similar issue -- they could only see AUH to ORD but not MLE to AUH - when I called them they were able to do it, there was a route they saw it open when flying to Cairo, so the aeroplan agent knew the segment was available.
