    They wanted to charge it, but he convinced supervisor, since he cannot redeem it online they should not charge it and the supervisor agreed.

    I have already edited my post.
    However, this creates a dilemma: if you find such a loophole, do you share? and if you share, then where?

    When in doubt, DO NOT SHARE or share over PM if someone has a situation that this is the remedy for.

    That's lucking out. Phone booking fees aren't waived for awards that cannot be booked online, e.g. one-way Star Alliance awards, Star awards on non-US partners besides LH, etc.

    And let's not forget the reason this couldn't be booked online is, of course, . . . :D

    They don't budge on the phone fee either...at least they never have for me.
