I'm pretty new to the miles game and I'm working on booking my honeymoon to Ireland. My base airport is MCI, but finding availability out of MCI in first/business is quite difficult. I found availability from CLT to DUB in business on the way out for 50,000 points/ticket on US Airways (booked through CO), and first from DUB-FRA-ORD for 67,500/ticket on the way back. I called to have the flights reserved for 3 days, and I have a few questions: 1. In order to book the whole trip (235,000 points) I need my fiancée's 50k credit card bonus to come through, which won't happen until Feb 6. My reservations are only good until midnight on Jan 27. Is there a way to transfer my reservation to her account to get more reservation days (even though another 3 days won't be enough)? Any chance I could pass the reservation back and forth between us or to another CO account to make it until the Feb 6 points hit? (It's been very hit and miss finding first/business availability out of any hubs, so I hate having to give up either of the reservations) 2. Do the Chase Ultimate rewards post immediately in my CO account as soon as I transfer them or do I need to start the transfer now or tomorrow? 3. Is there anyway to get out of paying the $50 call center fees when I book? Any other advice for a newbie?
