Story: Booked yesterday an award, and this was the discussion with the KE rep;
KE: from where will you have points?
CHFF: Chase
KE: you know you can't transfer now?
CHFF: but its coming back shortly?
KE: That's right


Good enough now?

Booked, but not ticketed

Probably just the top few execs have any clue about a timeline...

Because your average Joe Chase rep has any clue

They just know what is written on the memo

In my language that's called a hold and especially with KE you can't "book" something if you don't have the miles.

In my language, as a TA, a booking is a hold, and then there is the ticketing or actual purchase

Maybe the proper term is booking, but here on DDF most call a hold a hold and if you ticketed it "I booked it" or "I ticketed it".

+1. I was laughing when I read your post, I knew that people on here wont understand your TA language and ask questions.

Now you're right. But technically as long as I have flight numbers with the name on the reservation it's a booking. Then you can decide if you wanna ticket the booking. (by xfering miles or paying)

The confusion probably came from the bolded bit above. I think chff meant "can't" in that instance per his later post.

Yesterday was still down. Made my heart jump seeing a new post. Have rachmonis.

From the KE website.
Hopefully it comes back as planned.

※ Chase Ultimate Rewards point transfer is temporarily unavailable. It is planned to re-open during Jan, 2015.
