alaska / cathay
« on: February 13, 2018, 11:11:14 AM »
maybe this doesn't qualify for a new thread, however alaska airlines no longer books cathay flights within 72 hours of departure ! new policy started last week, big blow as cathay last minute premium availability is excellent [looks a carry over from virgin which had such a policy],

I just got off the phone with AS who went to the employee bulletin board and as of 2/8 it must be 72 hours or more.

I asked him to double check again with a supervisor and I will update shortly.

Update: Due to high fraud they have made this restriction and it applies to:

CX, JAL, and Hainan
