There may be an easier way, but if you call they should be able to give it to you.

I booked my 5 year old separately on a flight that we are all booked on so I changed his DOB by adding 10 years so I would be able to book it online. Will it be an issue that it doesn’t match his passport DOB? Since it is an international trip.

It's not an issue. You can always call the airline later to adjust it.

Shouldn't be an issue for check in or border control.

It may be an issue for Pre or if they try to scan his ID to get through security instead of using his BP since it won't match with the data from the flight manifest.

Virgin Atlantic awards ticket.
What's the cancellation policy?
Do I get my points and fees back, or do I get some sort of travel voucher?


What if I bought it with cash/ through Chase UR travel portal?  It looks like that gets me a voucher.

Yes, it's only on revenue tickets (unless EXP or higher).

So hard to keep up with all new new rules

Just booked a ticket on Delta using miles in main economy.
Can I cancel this ticket at any time and get full refund of miles?

In this post it mentions explicitly changes to tickets. Does the same apply to cancellation?

"redeposit fee" refers to getting your points redeposited back into your mileage account.  In other words - cancelled.

I believe they are very similar, airbus probably a bit better. I personally prefer the 777.

Do I need to book on United.com (with UA credit card) to get free baggage on United, or I can I use the UA cc on priceline and it'll still work?

Does the number of miles needed for NYC-TLV flights on United, AA, Delta ever decrease?

How long before a flight does award availability open up? Looking for August.
