You called Qantas? Did there have to be the award space or you could choose any date elal had flights?

Thanks

I picked a date with award availability...

Whats the chance Elal would convert this into an elal ticket on one of the many flights not released to qantas?

Can someone kindly explain why ELAL cant issue a qantas booked ticket? Is it a 'can't' or a 'wont' whats in the background on this?
