Don't have AS and don't have enough SPG to transfer to JAL.

I called AA for you after the DO  ;D
Apparently it was phantom availability. They told me on the phone that they don't give a boarding pass to infants, and she'll get a gate pass at the airport. DROPR. at security they sent her to check in for a boarding pass, they took her old one away and gave her new ones. Flight is overbooked by 45 ppl, and when she gets to boarding they point out there's no seat number on her new boarding pass and send her to the desk. After she burst out crying she ended up in a middle Y seat, no fun with a nursing baby. Time to switch to the compensation thread.

Oy vey.
I had similar situation on AA. After having to go back to check-in and reissuing the boarding passes, we had lost our bassinet seats. No tears 😌, though much frustrating.

BOS-ORD
6,000 B6

ORD-BOS
14,000-->7,000 MR (with BP) on UA

Free first checked bag on the outbound due to the B6 MC, which we'll probably use as we'll pack some gifts and consumables (C"H Pesach). No free checked bag on the return.

Makes as much sense as VFTW's current headline,
"8 Business Class Award Seats in Both Economy and Business to Israel With United Miles"
 ??? ??? ??? ???

At least he gave you credit for it although he got a little careless here I guess not every blogger has a whole forum of people to proofread their posts for them
