The guy from flyertalk never responded, so he was of no help.

I have the following ticket ZRH-DXB-MLE

1) Tried to get CO to let me upgrade my ticket from DXB to MLE from Eco to Business , they said not possible Emirates does not let.

2) I tried to cut DXB-MLE from the ticket, like this I am left with ZRH-DXB and I can book DXB-MLE with EK miles, even that Emirates/CO does not let, as they have to reissue the ticket and EK will not accept any changes.

So if you booked a EK ticket, you will not be able to touch it at all, not even cancel part of it. Really dumb

You sent an email and a PM to him and he didn't respond?

I spoke to a few supervisors, they all said the same: emirates is not helping them out, they deny every request. They feel bad, but thats the situation

So send an email.  If there's anyone at CO/UA that can do it it's him.  If he says it can't be done then it can't be done.

Not actually taking these flights, but I wanted to book something before the CO/EK relationship ends.  You can make changes for free for 1 year from date of booking.  And of course free redeposit as a plat.

YYZ-DXB is on an A380.  Shame that CO won't book in First to get to try out those private suites and showers!

120K CO miles+$45

We 01/25 AC 7902, CLE-YYZ, 6:10pm-7:20pm, Coach
2:20 connection in YYZ
We 01/25 EK242, YYZ-DXB, 9:40pm-7:35pm+1, Business
7:50 connection in DXB
Fr 01/27 EK658, DXB-MLE, 3:25am-8:30am, Coach
5 nights in the Maldives
We 02/01, MLE-DXB, 11:50pm-2:55am+1, Coach
5:25 connection in DXB
Th 02/02, DXB-LAX, 8:20am-12:50pm, Business
3 nights in Los Angeles
Su, 02/05, LAX-CLE, 11:15pm-6:30am, First

Anyone else going to book something speculative on Emirates today?
Has anyone had luck changing the dates on an EK ticket booked by CO? If not I guess I'm going to have to cancel.

If you read Dans Hawaii report you will see legs booked in coach, although the short ones I may add. Apparently he is normal and does what makes sense, which if you ask him for the most part means flying in first!
