Mixing Economy with Business on DL award
[SIZE=4]I am trying to book an award from PHX-MSP-AMS-GVA. All the flights are available at low level in Business except the first flight from PHX-MSP which only has low level Economy. Can I combine the Economy flight from PHX-MSP(Delta) with the Business class flights from MSP-AMS(Delta) and AMS-GVA(KLM) on one award for 62,500 Skymiles or is it going to price additively?
I remember reading in a blog post on OMAAT that a combination like this might have trouble pricing if it was all DL metal. I am hoping that the inclusion of the KLM flight in Business might allow it price as one award.
[USER=1001]@johnmaher[/USER] – you should be able to do that though I bet you’ll have to call. And if that first segment should ever have business-level available they should be able to upgrade you for no additional miles.
You should be able to do that, but yes, as [USER=184]@MidSouth Skier[/USER] mentioned you will have to call, but they might waive the phone reservations fee if it’s not bookable online. At least that is what they did for me. Tiffany did a post this summer with more information about this.
Here is a chart from that post:
