How do I get AA points?  They have the best price for a flight I'd like to book.

Another reason why to get a Bilt cc [@Dan]

Is there a way to check if someone made it onto a flight? A relative has a stopover without phone service and i don't know if they made their connecting flight.
PM me for airline compensation help. Your case is not lost!

On United itíll say ďon boardĒ if you have their boarding pass pulled up on the app. Otherwise, log in with their confirmation code and youíll usually see they were rebooked if they missed the connection.

Is there any way to book 2 separate Air Canada tickets for the same flight and then merge the 2 into 1 reservation?

Thanks

Since the new redesign of the LH group sites, I can't seem to order KSML anymore. It used to be easy to do on LH.com. Now, all LH airlines, OS, LX, LH have the same look and feel and KSML is nowhere to be found. Any way other than calling?

Random Q. I booked a flight EWR-TLV on points. not much is available on points for the return. Has anyone booked a roundtrip from TLV to NYC say perhaps with AA and when you get to NYC cancel the return and ask for a partial refund? Anyone every try this or know if i will get screwed from AA after the fact.

Highly unlikely they will give you a partial refund, but there's no issue with booking a roundtrip and not traveling the return flight.

The partial refund will be pro-rated based on how much each leg is worth.
So if the round is 90K, you may only get 40K back, if they determine outgoing is 50K. Look up the cost of the legs that you're booking.

On any airline, when you go into your reservation to add your FF#, there's often a dropdown menu of all the places you can credit the miles.

Do you know if the same is true with a Cash ticket? Has anyone done this before and have any confirmed results?

You won't get a partial refund on a partially used ticket for a voluntary cancelation. The only way to get a refund for it will be if there is a schedule change on that flight.

Impossible to combine two separate bookings.
