you cant have a minor in different cabin

however if you can successfully book it and they give you problems at gate I'm sure you can find s/o who would trade seats.
Same across the board all airlines?

Can I have 1 seat in business and 1 in economy on the same reservation?
No, cannot have different classes on one booking.

Flying United from Newark with someone that needs a wheelchair. Is there any way to have one waiting for us? Last time we needed to wait 30 min for one.

The airport runs the electric carts. Hard to arrange in advance.
The individual airlines offer the wheelchair service. They are usually prompt. You should call ahead and/or indicate it online.

Which airline?

Is a 1:45 connection enough in Athens for a self transfer? No luggage, both flights are Aegean (I will have to exit the secure area as Aegean requires to pick up boarding passes for TLV bound flights at the check-in counter)
And if I miss my connection will I be protected onto the next flight as its the same airline?

Basically you have 45 min. If the checkin closes 1hr before. Running it close, though I think you should be fine. I personally would take the risk.
 You have to know your risk tolerance.   
 Was it a single ticket both flights? Or you peiced them together? If its one ticket i would feel OK to take the risk, and worst case you'll be put on next fligh( they should offer that if there is room)& you have no luggage to worry about.

Question - My flight was delayed yesterday almost 4 hours. from Boston to Newark. The app said because of weather in EWR but I see it was really because of Air traffic Control Staff shortage, the weather was fine. 
Is that considered a delay on United's part that i can try to get compensated for?
Also, they didn't delay the flight the full amount at once. They started with a hour delay and then every half our they pushed it off again. If they would have let me know at 5.30 that my flight was taking off at 11 PM instead of 7:10 I could've rented a car driven home. (three hour drive)

CC and alike start at 6hrs for reimbursement.  See what your card covers and yes Definitely reach out to united and show proof in the putting how it was a gorgeous day back in ewr and how you know it was an issue on their end and it delated your meeting or you would have... they will probably offer something small. But don't expect much.

When booking an united award ticket LON-TLV it's cheaper to do 2 separate tickets rather then 1 ticket with a layover due to hefty UK taxes for non-eu flights. I see that flight gets delayed quit often so it's tight. my question is if A3 will put me onto the next flight if first flight gets delayed because its the same airline after all

Anyone know why the fee for a second bag on an Air France US-TLV flight is $205? Is it supposed to be this high, or should I call them

Should be 105
Is the second leg operated by elal?
That could be glitching the system

I had a capital one travel credit for approx $300, I reached out to capital one travel to make a new flight booking using my travel credit, the flight I wanted was approx $500 round trip (with united airlines), the agent I spoke to was very slow and kept on putting me on hold, at some point he told me that the total for the flight I wanted is around $420 and that after using my travel credit I would need to pay the $120 balance, I agreed, waited on hold, the call got disconnected, a couple of minutes later I get a call back but after 2 seconds the call goes dead, this was late at night, so I gave up and went to bed.
I wake up in the morning to an email from United airlines with a ticketed flight! The total cost for the flight as per the united confirmation email is $338 " Payment method Miscellaneous Document Cash "   in smaller letters further down on the email it said "Payment Info, Remaining value of your previous ticket numbers 0168093098487, 0168093098485 was applied to this purchase".
When logging onto capital one travel portal, no sign of any existing booking and the credit seems to still be available for future use...
I contacted united to request a different seat and they took care of my request, no issues, it was ticketed, do I need to worry that something may go wrong?

Definitely strange.

If in fact, she booked it for free for you, which i'm not sure where the payment came from. Then you don't wanna mess it up by calling capital one.
On the other hand you don't want get to the airport. And they're going to tell you that there's no ticket in the system.

Was there any other card that you have connected to your capital1 account?

So you're saying that you have a booking on united? That was booked through capital one, but no sign of any booking from your capital one account?

Honestly, cole capital, one asked him if any booking was made out of your account. If in fact, the booking was made, then who made the payment?

If in fact, no booking was made, then I honestly have no answer for you. How you have a ticket in the system with united, unless it was put on hold and never paid for.
I know with American Airlines, and Delta Airlines. You can put a ticket on hold and actually have it ticketed, but you have to make a payment within a certain time frame.
That's great to hold the price and to hold a specific seat.

Thank you for your input. I checked my cc with capital one, no charge.
When I log on to my account on the United app and go to my trips, my flight is right there, as I mentioned, I even contacted united via chat and they gave me an upgraded seat, it seems that my reservation is all good. Still a little worried though...

I'm curious to know how the the flight was paid for. Call back united and ask, what form of payment was used to make this booking.  Or for all you know it was just put on hold and never paid for.
 Or you just had a nice employee wanting to sponsor your flight.
  Who knows, Maybe the caller ahead of you told them to sponsor the next person's flight, Whoever calls. (A Mr beast move.)
