thanks for that, will definitely try! Do they show me the itinerary right away? If this method works, big thanks to you!   :D
GC often doesn't work, BTW. They ain't stupid.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

gc and dB card all the same? Do they try to verify the funds before confirming the ticket?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

if that method doesn't work why not work your way up for ex a ticket costing 500$ you start by 200$ and a normal price you think they would agree on and if not go up and up! Since ur saying going down would not always work since the DC might not go through?

But keep in mind that once your bid is accepted, they charge the card and you're booked.  So only press 'go' when you're ready to take the fare you're bidding.

They limit the amount of bids you can make. If your bid is not accepted then you can't just make another. You will have to change the dates, airports or something else too.

what's stopping me from doing it again? Using the same name? Or is it the address? (will it work to try one a day or what's the limit per day? )

Yes. But you will know if thats the reason it didn't confirm.

There are websites dedicated to PL bidding tactics.

can anyone tell me whether I should pick Aeroflot or Ukraine International airlines? I need to get to israel and trying to figure out whether a) are either of them manageable (I am slightly picky) and b) is one better than the other.

I can also take Turkish, but i am slightly nervous cuz i would have to stop there over night (8 hour layover)...

Aeroflot is way better than Ukranian.

Aeroflot flies new 777 on this route, whereas Ukraine flies a 767 that they took from Aerosvit with 2-3-2 in econ and changed it to 2-4-2

Is there any OTA that allows you to search for multi-city with some legs in Y and some in J? ITA is a pain...

I need to extend the expiration of my Flying Blue miles. I was wondering if flying from USA to Canada on a Delta flight operated by WestJet would allow me to earn Flying Blue miles. I chose the Delta flight number when purchasing from Priceline and my credit card was charged by Delta. Furthermore, the confirmation number can be looked up on Delta.com. Delta is a member of SkyTeam, but WestJet is not.
I did not see any responses for a week after I posted. Can someone answer here or direct me to an appropriate thread?
Two phone calls to Delta got me two contradictory answers, so it would be helpful if you mention whether your answer is based on experience.

Wont help. Westjet and flying blue aren't mileage partners

When booking for a child that is becoming 2 in middle the trip, can I book as infant?
If I have etickets already (as infant), am I safe?

Depends on the airline
