Etihad and Expert Flyer Equipment Changes???
As of the last few days for myself (or last few weeks per FlyerTalk Etihad Thread), when checking my flight here in a few weeks on Etihad EY20 Wed. 1/6 LHR > AUH OR EY11 AUH>LHR Tues. 1/12 on the A380 which I booked as a surprise for my wife and I, Expert Flyer is showing equipment changes and unable to display the seat map…As worried as I am, after searching flyer talk and finding people having the same issues on other Etihad’s A380 flights such as AUH > SYD, I am hoping it is just a glitch and representatives don’t seem to know what is going on.
I know Etihad is notorious for changing aircrafts quite often but does anyone have any information on what is going on??? Also, if they change the aircraft how easy/how do I go about asking to have my wife and I switched to an A380 flight? We booked via AA miles and have some flexibility on days/times if need be. All I want is to fly first on the A380 :/ Any help and information would be greatly appreciated, thank you and happy holidays!
[USER=1292]@Levi[/USER]–that’s tought. Equipment changes can be frustrating. Unfortunately when booking with AA miles you don’t really have much leverage other than [I]maybe[/I] being able to convince an agent to redeposit an award without imposing a fee. In order to switch to another day you’ll have to find EY availability in order to switch because AA does not have the ability to open up space on a partner airline.
