Lucky, tell me if you think this is possible to coordinate between AA and QF (with a lot of patience and HUCA):
I’m booked AA award SYD-DXB QF1 in First
Continuation of QF1 DXB-LHR in First just opened up for award booking
Can I call AA, get QF liason on phone, and say hey can you rebook me all the way through to London (even paying change fee)?
I know that SYD-DXB isn’t open market to market, and system won’t let you book thru flight as sum of locals, but do do you think it’s possible to coordinate AA award desk with QF RM to allow this booking?
I don’t want to cancel the award because it doesn’t necessarily go back to inventory from my experience.
Many thanks for your insights!!
@ bd — Unfortunately not, that’s just a function of “direct” vs “indirect” flight. Can’t guarantee it, but 99% of the time Qantas award space that’s redeposited goes back into inventory, so I think you may have luck with it. A bit of risk, though.
