Mistake fares for dummies:
« on: February 11, 2015, 10:35:31 AM »
Time is crucial!
Often ticketed reservations are honored, but those booked but not ticketed aren't.
So you need to get yours booked fast.
During today's mistake, I heard people asking for passport numbers, trying to decide which seat to take, fumbling for the credit card that earns the most points...
Usually birthdays can be changed after also.
Middle names are not important.
I make sure to have a Jewish calendar app on my phone so I know what dates to book.

If you miss the first leg of your trip, the rest of your itinerary will be cancelled. One hundred people were asking about that on DDMS

If you want someone to book it for you, or find you better dates / locations, just post on DDMS.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

If you are not sure how it works, just call the airline directly, they will be glad to assist you...
