Thanks but if no Ink or Sapphire, only Slate and Freedom, there is no way to transfer to airline?
Correct, no way without a chase premium card

Ok thanks! How does chase know who is a spouse (I.e. Why can't I find a friend that has a premium card and transfer to them)?
If you are trying to get my attention/assistance and I'm not responding, please feel free to PM me. :)

I'd assume a different last name is a key flag (I.e. shouldn't have any issue transferring to a sibling with the same last name, but if you're planning on transferring to more than one sibling/spouse, that could be an issue).

 I was looking this up recently and their T&Cs state:

 Transfer points to frequent travel programs

 You can transfer points in 1000 point increments, but only to participating frequent travel program for accounts belonging to you or one additional household member who is listed on your account as an authorized user. Once you transfer points to an authorized user, that person will be the only authorize user eligible to receive point transfers through this program.

 Combine points with other chase cards with ultimate rewards

You can move your points, but only to another Chase account with ultimate rewards belonging to you or one member of your household.

Based on the definition of household it's probably safe to assume the address needs to be the same.

If I have a boarding pass departing from T2 in JFK, will security let me through in T1?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

within 24 hours of booking for everyone. After that, it depends on your status.

I tried it in STL when I had a 2-3 hour stopover on Southwest but I wanted to use the AA lounge.
After seeing my BP the security agent pointed out to me that I was in the wrong terminal to which I explained my intention and he let me through. It may be YMMV.

Everything with the TSA is a YMMV, it depends if the agent wants to feel powerful that day.

If I hold a revenue booking  will I be able to confirm it with miles? (assuming that the same itinerary is available for reward booking)

It's different fare buckets.

Yep.
Is it just a coincidence that the reward availability for the route  disappeared right after I put it on hold through revenue ?

It's possible that the availability is related. However it doesn't exactly correspond.

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?
