Points posted in an old account today. Anyone get an answer back yet after sending in verification?

A friend just got this.
He created accounts, one for each of his children and his wife.

For those that followed Dan's advice regarding the age of the kids, I wonder how that will shake out in the verification process.
spoke to a rep who verified that under 18 accounts can still get the points.

I did not anticipate that  Iberia would require a verification process and i opened an account  using a hebrew name under profile name and booked the tickets under a hebrew name.which does not match up with my passport. i want to  change the profile name, but a rep told me  told me I cannot change the flight tickets first name

How? The earliest birthdate they allow you to create is year 2000, which would make an under 18 account a falsely created account.

Posted. BH.

Now to the problems. I'm seeing certain CX flights as married segments, but not when searching directly. Does call-in help?

How does Iberia price mixed class routings?
BUMP

Also can one book CX PE using IB Avios?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

They are very particular about married segments. You will find very different availability depending on where youre connecting to from MAD.

 My experience though has been that I was able to book NYC-MAD-XXX and collect my luggage in MAD and transfer to MAD-TLV.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

What did you do to collect your luggage?

Alas, IB is telling me that while they can see CX PE availability, they don't have an agreement to sell it using Avios.

What are people doing for verification of children’s accounts?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

If you were able to get into the account through the app, you can change the document number...

Got points, don't really need to fly anywhere, anything else to do with these points?
