    I posted here a couple of days ago about my parents possibly getting their Lufthansa flight cancelled on Friday and it has in fact been cancelled. United has put my parents on another flight from NCE-BRU and then BRU-ORD. They said, however, they can't confirm until tomorrow morning because they need to get the thumbs up from Brussels that they have space...Where can I see if they have space to put my mind at ease? And if they don't to preemptively look for other ways to get to Brussels for my parents.

    One other point-United has saver tickets available for the flight that they are supposed to be booked on. Does that mean since they have saver tickets, they don't anticipate selling those so it's more likely they will be available? Thanks
    Thanks!

    Are your parents booked in Y/C/F? Maybe ask a UA agent to rebook your parents into these flights especially if they were originally in F. According to Lufthansa's cancellation website, LH 434 is not affected by the strike.

    I also see space in LX C from NCE-YUL-ORD with the last segment being in UA Y.

    If your parents are booked in F then do Lufthansa. If booked in C then do LX unless time is important because I prefer LX C over LH C any day even with the new seats that LH rolled out. If booked in Y then I would personally go with UA...
