Name Change on AA reward international Ticket
I am booked with AA rewards in May 2016 for 2 passengers on Qatar BKK-DOH-AUH and on Etihad AUH -LHR- ZRH
All First Class besides LHR- ZRH.
My buddy cant make it and want someone else to fly instead.
I am afraid I don’t get the flights back when I cancel the second person and try to rebook with the new name.
Online on BA on Etihad is nothing available.
How do I do it best?
Thank you for your help
Unfortunately you’ll have to redeposit the award in order to change the name, so there’s definitely a risk that space won’t return to inventory 🙁
I am in a similar situation. I’m waiting for the flights to be ticketed. An agent made a small mistake in my father’s first name. When flights were on hold, changing it required a space in the inventory. But another agent told me to wait for them to be ticketed and then – call them back. He said they’d try to re-ticket them without cancelling the award. I called to Australia, if that matters. If this won’t work – I’ll try to call Qatar and Etihad separatly. If that won’t work -I will hope for some help at the check-in desk 😐
