I'm 13 miles short for an award.
Any quick way to get 13 miles as I'd rather not transfer 1,000 Amex points?
Try calling and asking nicely :)

I made a reservation back in November with skymiles on china southern
Today I try to locate my reservation just to find out that China southern cancelled it.
Delta claims they can't rebook as china southern is leaving the skyteam
I asked to be put up in revenue they claim they are not partners anymore and they can't do that
Anything I could do?

By admitting your mistake your teaching everyone else a lesson so we dont have to make the same mistake as you. 
Thanks! ;)

That was a sale for RT flights. Not standard.

FYI I had a flight for myself and wife from NY to MIA for this Tuesday as we go every Purim and I got it a long time ago on a dansdeal. BH my granddaughter is getting married IYH tomorrow night and since her engagement I've been trying to see if they'll do anything for me. I bought insurance but I don't have a health reason and I don't lie. I called them numerous times since then, explained the true situation (invited them to the wedding!) but I got nowhere. Today, no clue why, I called again. I got an exception to use them by the end of December! I guess HUCA can help even the day before!
You see things; you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?

Does AF have access to different DL inventory than VS? Flight is 130k DL, available for 23,500 FB, but doesn't show up on VS.
