Delta companion ticket
« on: July 26, 2017, 10:21:53 AM »
sorry for new thread but I couldn't find anything recent on this anywhere else.
I booked 3 one way flight from NYC to SAN using DW delta account to book with DL points  and for the return 3 one way with amex bp/2 under my account. my brother in law had a delta companion ticket that he isn't using and since I will also be traveling with a lap infant he offered for me to take it and get an extra seat for the baby. my question is can I use his companion pass without my BIL flying? and how would I go about getting it as a round trip if the reservations are under 2 diff accounts/names- is it possible? any guidance is much appreciated

The boarding pass of your BIL. will need to be scanned for check-in in order to hold the seat. If it's not scanned, they will not hold it if there are standby passengers. If you ask them, they will tell you that it can't be done.

Whetheryou choose to present the boarding pass as if it were the child's is up to you, probably won't be noticed, but is definitely against the contract of carriage, and might be illegal.

You can't cancel one of your tickets, and rebook for the child?
