Rebooked from O into J
Hey Lucky and team,
Schedule changes abound! I had booked a RT award flight to Europe and due to a schedule change, I was rebooked (AND now get to fly on the KLM Dreamliner in Business! much better than the Delta 767 I was flying)… Well, it appears that I was rebooked in to F or J on all the legs (not the original fare class). Since these are revenue fare codes, would/could I be credited if I credit the flights into a partner program? My first thought was Mileage plan, but since Alaska and Delta are breaking up in April, that’s no longer viable as my flights are in June. Thoughts?
Not likely. Reward tickets never pay points. As noted you got a pretty good upgrade.
You [I]might[/I] get lucky on crediting flights and receiving miles for them. Give it a try. Yes, youre not supposed to get credit but I think it happened with [USER=4]@Lucky[/USER] once – [URL=’http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2012/12/25/bling-it-on-emirates-lounge-london-heathrow-after-a-surprise/’]he was re-booked from a BA award into an Emirates[/URL] flights on a paid fare class.
Treat it as a bonus – if you dont get miles, thats fine, since it’s technically an award flight, but if you do, then great!
Actually, if you were rebooked, you might! When we were rebooked from JAL to CX on our Thailand trip last year it was to full-fare F, and everyone earned miles.
You can check here to see where to credit the miles, but like [USER=29]@David W[/USER] says, don’t be disappointed if they don’t post:
Yep, Virgin Atlantic rebooked us onto BA due to a last minute cancelation and we earned full credit in AS. I would definitely add a third party FF number and hope for luck :).
When it’s good to be wrong….
Hey All! Thank you so much for the input! I’m going to try crediting to Flying Blue? Or are they too tightly integrated with DL systems, and I’d be better off trying to credit to Korean?
It shouldn’t matter, at least I don’t think it would.
