"Try cancelling the upgrade request and resubmit it. This has fixed this problem for me on several occasions where I booked the ticket then requested an upgrade immediately."
"You're wrong there djtech about the flat beds and direct aisle access. The 777-200's flying to Melbourne and Wellington don't have it either. I agree with the lack of consistency comment up thread. "
"Hi, I'm looking to book some travel from MEL to SIN and return in July next year, using my United Mileage Plus miles. Unfortunately, the only flight on offer in J is the 247/248 flight which continues on to Wellington which is currently served by a B777-200 with the old sloping sleeper 2-2-2 seat..."
"Originally Posted by djtech I don't even understand why they would call then cancel if they know where you'd be going anyways. I had this happen to me a few times, one time causing me to miss my flight! Screenshoted the driver and made a complaint. Gave me a $5 coupon in the app. Sometimes booki..."
"Yes I've had the same issue but only with flights. Not with other points earning transactions. A domestic flight I took on the 1st took the full 14 days to appear on my account. I was just about to lodge a missing points claim."
"Yes you'll have to call them to get it to happen faster. I applied in mid-late July and I only got approved mid October. But I didn't call them to ask them to hurry it up. "
"This takes forever to come through when you first apply. I applied in late July just before my Platinum ran out and I dropped back to gold. I got the confirmation email from Hilton about 3 weeks ago."
"Hi. I've been lucky enough to score an upgrade to business on Sunday's QF9 Mel to Perth only, which departs just after 5pm. I thought I might try out the Emirates lounge as I've not been in there. In checking the emirates website it says the lounge is open 24hrs a day, which I highly doubt. Howev..."
"This would possibly decimate the brand value. Let's face it, most members are bronze or silver and the only 2 (useful) uses of points are upgrades or awards. If they take one away, I can see a lot of members taking their business elsewhere. I'm gold but if I couldn't use my points for upgrades ..."
"Thanks Michael. Yes i did mean if I can book them a separate reward ticket. Thanks for the tip on Krisflyer requiring you to nominate them as the nominated person before you redeem for them. I may end up doing this on Krisflyer."
"Hi, the menu button on the top left of the main page does not seem to work. It currently reloads the home page. It does work from other pages, such as viewing a community post. I've tried this from 2 browsers on my android device. Also the front page ad is cut off at the top. "
"Can I book reward seats for travel for my partner as a single ticket? I know I can book both of us together using 2 reward seats. But i will be travelling separately to her. I'd always thought this should be fine, but remember reading some different opinions here a while ago."
