Horrible title.

1) First class awards are bookable through March 2015.
2) First class awards are bookable through EOS with persistance.
3) Neither AS or EK has made any official statement regarding first class awards.

Your right. I copied and pasted the headline from travelsort.com, should I just delete the thread?

I also found it weird that they didn't quote any official sources. Is travelsort not reliable?

Horrible news, I was waiting to use this award at a later date, should I do this award now? I was just in Asia in May!!!.

 But again it is  rumored that Etihad A380's will make it to the shores of America with showers.

Not the chauffeur service, my chauffeur
Reservation was canceled retroactively.

Looks like something going on

No.

And not the right thread for this.

From flyertalk a$$hole who is about to ruin the deal:

Both ticket numbers started with 027. I tried asking Emirates about this without any luck,so I lodged a complaint with DOT who are investigating further.  I'll post with what ends up happening.

I happen to agree with him, how can EK take away a benefit after the ticket and chauffeur were booked? Retroactively canceling is disgusting.

And how would a DOT complaint about a canceled chauffeur service kill EK- AS relationship? They fully deserve the DOT complaint

Wonder what @AJK has to say about this
