UA is on strike, or is LH on strike ?

As long as you don't credit to UA.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

A bit off topic, but probably better than starting new thread...

What is United's standby policy Ex-TLV? Will they allow you to change to the flight exactly 24 Hours before since there are only two daily flights?

Why would he get credit on a mileage ticket? He didn't say that UA reissued him on a revenue fare.

ETA: I see he said that UA rebooked him in J. Just wondering why would UA rebook him in a J class...
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

I think J is a REVENUE  fair from what I know

U A Made error they had no seats on day I wanted , then CSR said  --your lucky day I found two seats and then booked me in J

When UA re booked me at that time I did not know it would be in "J"  so ticket has UA number attached since it came from mileage acct. ---IF I call UA or LH  they may  notice the error in fare code --THOUGHTS?  IDEAS?

I was thinking that and would do that on return --as assume less risk since 3/4  ticket used and would only need to worry about last leg -----since it is MIA-FRA-ATH --I can do in FRA "'ASSUME" since ticket number still open it would change all flits on tkt to LH number

do not want to take any risk to jeopardize flights --- my argument is --I HAVE A CFMD TICKET that is 9 months old

but then you would lose out on the miles for the first legs until you switch ffn

do you know that? as I was thinking since all on one ticket number "all" flights would be changed --- IF when u book a r/t  ticket under normal situations -can u even credit different legs to different airlines when on one ticket? -- I do not think you can?--if can then you are right
