I booked an AA flight with avios, how do I go about getting free luggage from my citi AA card?
Make sure your AA mileage number is on the reservation.
If your BA number is already on, you'll usually need to call AA to change it or do it in the airport.

Can someone explain to me how basic economy works with international flights and with codeshare?

If Delta sells me a BE ticket on VS metal does it have any/some/all BE restrictions? What if VS sells me a ticket for the same price on DL metal, if VS doesn't mention it being BE does that me Delta won't try restrict me?

Same for AA and Finnair.

What if it's BA metal and AA and Finnair are selling a ticket for the same price, AA calls it BE and Finnair doesn't?

Am I better off buying a BA ticket on AA metal or an AA ticket on BA metal?

I'd be grateful for all and any insight!

I'd like to book the following trip:
IAD-->BCN - on UA using UA miles
BCN-->WAW-->TLV - on LOT using UR points

The 1st leg is intercontinental so I get a free bag but on the 2nd and 3rd leg I do not get a free bag.  Since UA and LOT are both Star Alliance is there anyway to combine the tickets after I purchase them so I can get a free bag all the way through?

Do you need a united boarding pass to get into the club with a pass from the CC? If yes is that official? DO they check for one?

You can't change the name of the FF account?

No wont let you do it online.  The ff name was correct, only the ticket name was wrong.

Also had a similar question. If you have an American passport that says you were born in Israel is that a problem? Cant find a straight answer online

I redeemed ur points for a flight for myself and a plus 1 for a flight from lga to yyz (redeemed a few weeks ago). Redeemed from sr account.

Now the plus 1 - different first and last name - doesnít want to fly- will it mess me up with checking in and boarding? Any way to cancel the plus 1 flight and leave mine alone (would be great if I could get the points back).

Should I call sr rep?

no need to worry, won't mess up your reservation.
If you want you can try calling airline to split PNR and cancel out the other pax. Doubt they'll offer a refund

My suggestion is keep the reservation and check him/her in online and enjoy the extra seat next to you.

So what do I do about checking in? I canít check in online without the plus 1ís passport info. Should I ask them for it or no need to check in online (carry-on only).
