    I had one way DPS---Buf booked
    Cancelled the whole trip
    Miles still held
    Want to rebook that ticket as one way PBI-ORD-BUF for feb26 For 75$ and take to balance miles back (figured a good use of the miles, flights are expensive that day for all carriers an avoids 150$ redeposit fee)
    CO website let me book and hold the flights on24hr hold
    It expired. Realized I had to call to make the change to use the prior miles held hostage by them
    Every time I call they say that it is double miles only or unavailable in any class then on second try they say pbi-ORD available as saver biz but ORd-buf leg double miles only
    Whats my best move? Are they screwing with me? They seat maps are wide open which I know doesn't mean flight is empty but it has to be some kind of indicator of light load!?
    Do I suck it up and use the double miles?
    Would they ever eventually open up a saverpass seat on that flight at some point and then refund half my miles paid? If so I am assuming it's on my responsibility to find, catch it and then call for refund?

    This is just a re-start of seasonal service. CO started operating the route in February 2011.
