    I’ve been trying to book a oneway award on NH using Lifemiles – the space is there, as it shows up on United. Mix cabin, F/J but it keeps giving me an error. Anyone have any idea why? It’s also a points+cash redemption.

    I know ANA only allows round-trip awards when using their own miles – I wonder if they have the same restriction for partners?

  3. David W

    They dont – I booked ANA one way using SQ. I tried a rt booking and got the same error. I emailed Lifemiles the details and asked for a manual booking since that’s a thing but I wanted to see if anyone else ran into errors.

    Mixed cabin is sometimes hard, connections in random cities are sometimes hard, dealing with Lifemiles is almost always hard.

    🙁 what do I do?! I emailed them with all the details and requested a manual booking but have not heard back….

    FINALLY got it ticketed, after trying again. When it works Lifemiles is kinda awesome, ESPECIALLY mixed cabin awards.
