Trying to book nyc-tlv on Aeroflot using FB. Availability shows on EF and delta, but when I search on fb website they don't give me the option. Any ideas ?
Reps. claim the space is not available to FP eventhough it's available to all other skyteam partner.

Is it true that delta cant book a multi cabin itinerary on aeroflot ?
JFK-SVO-TLV is available in J but SVO-TLV is only available in Y, and reps. are saying I have to book the flights separately and can't book as one ticket.

After an hour and half I finally got a agent to do it.

I'm trying to book RT from NYC to SJD using KE. Anyone know how I can do this because koreanair.com doesn't recognize SJD as an airport?

Been looking online for a while for Delta availability on Flying Blue but nothing has been showing up.  Any thoughts or suggestions?  Do I need to call?

No, just Delta doesn't release much saver space. Find saver space on DL.com and then plug in that flight to flying blue

No. SQ is star alliance, and Delta is sky team.

If anything, transfer to and use AF, but I wouldn't do that.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Any saver fight can be booked with Korean, round-trip trip required. Instant Xfer.

Probably because chase are too valuable to transfer to flying blue, which you can obtain with amex or citi

Three times (on three different reservations) i've went to book Delta partner award tickets. Everytime I make the purchase, it errors out for some reason. The space is then pulled from the inventory and not ticketed. Delta of course says that someone else booked it before me. This is the third time it happened. So either I have really bad luck, or delta phone reps have no idea waht they're talking about. In any event, they can't book the award because it isn't in inventory (verified on expert flyer). This seems like an IT glitch - any experience?
