Question on Skymiles Award Booking

Question on Skymiles Award Booking

  1. Anonymous

    Hi Lucky,

    I’m trying to book a Skymiles award from LAX to WNZ and I have the following problem.

    Since there’s no direct flights between the two cities, all the results I got on are flight operated by Delta/China Eastern to PVG then from PVG to WNZ on China Eastern/Shanghai Airlines(a subsidiary of China Eastern), and the saver business award is 70K miles plus tax (same as LAX-PVG)

    Then I tried to search award offered by China Airlines since it does not impose fuel surcharges. I searched LAX-TPE and TPE-WNZ, rates at 70K and 30K respectively. Is it possible to book the route as LAX-TPE-WNZ(which is not shown on when I searched LAX-WNZ routes) by phone at the 70K rate? Thanks!
