If I book an international flight on an OTA and I want to add a lap infant later will the airline charge me 10% of what I paid for adult ticket or 10% of going price?
IME with points resrvations, they charge 10% of the current price. I would imagine revenue is the same.

United Airlines seems to have jacked up one way tickets like crazy! I can still book round trips at the prices I saw before, but the one leg trips are in the thousands when before it was the base price of 700 or so. This is SFO to TLV or CDG and back.

There's a great price for a Ukranian Airline flight to Tel Aviv (<600). Is that an airline to consider or should I stay away. One stop in the Ukraine.

Which airlines open more availability for rewards members (like United does)?

I don't bother using my rewards/frequent flyer number when checking availability except for United as of now.

Has anyone had experience with Sun Country Airline? Would first class on a Boeing 737 make it a pleasant experience or still only bearable? It doesn't look like they take points.

Their first class is domestic style recliner.

United doesnt have more space for 'rewards members', they have more space for elites and for CC holders.
LH
And IB, SQ, AF, AZ, and possibly CX

KBP & LWO is roughly the same distance from mezibush, however taxis from KBP will probably be cheaper


ETA: googe maps claims LWO - Mezibush is 30 faster, however taxi drivers claim the roads are much rougher from there

I'm looking to fly Azerbaijan airline. They offer 2 free suitcases when flying to/from Baku to jfk. If I'm flying from TLV will I get it as well? It is stopping off in Baku.

thanks. I see better availability to KBP, will probably go there. How is Ukraine airlines, is it a good airline?
