@Jo 08701 what happened in the end?

Due to covid restrictions I wasnt able to fly to that destination, so I can't report back if I would have gotten the miles.

In a side note, I realized that although it used to make sense to rather use the pay with miles option by delta vs booking awards, (when price is in the same range as 1 mile = 1cent) however, it's much more convenient to cancel an award than a pay with miles, by pay with miles you get a voucher, by awards it gets deposit back right away.

No, all tickets in one reservation must be in the same cabin

I want to book tickets MIA - BUE.
Aerolineas Argentinas  and Delta  fly there.

I tried the various SkyTeam partners, but it doesn't show:  KLM, Virgin,
Is there something I need to know?

AA also flies there -direct- and has a miles 'sale' price that's better, but I don't have AA miles.

The AA flight will sometimes be available with British Airways miles.

Trying to book a seat for baby on points in Flying Blue for a delta ticket, they only show seats for adults or kids 2-11, is there an issue if i try to book the 2-11 with an earlier birthday? Alternative is to call delta and pay the full major cash payout, but will delta say the ticket is invalid if the birthday is 2 years ahead?

Not sure if this is the right thread, but Flying blue has vanished from Amex airline partners on the last day of the bonus, did anyone notice?
