Held a ticket EWR-TLV J award on TK. Thing is, I need to add an infant to it. Should I cancel and let the ticket go back into inventory to add the infant there (10% of fare in miles) or keep the ticket and try my best to get the infant ticket in points instead of 10% revenue?

Thanks!

Definitely first try adding the infant to the held ticket, so you won’t risk losing it. If that doesn’t work, you have a debate, but I wouldn’t risk losing it either way.

I'd guess either next chanukah or pesach but I'll let @Dan prove me wrong

Unless you're flying with AA, or to London.

Not most likely, "I" is always saver business class on UA.

Does anyone have a trick to extended the time limit on a UA flight held with TK points? Mine is expiring tonight and I don't have the points yet :(

Thank you!
