I'm confused, and I admit it may be poor memory on my part. I just booked a reservation for late January: the trip is domestic, and revenue (not award). I didn't object to the new booking engine as much as the "Hell" thread had told me I might. But then. . . At the end, when given the choice to hold without paying today, I was only offered what they said was 24 hours (in truth a little longer, until midnight tomorrow night). For travel so far in the future, I was thinking I was going to be offered a week or two hold. Has something changed, and if so did it have anything to do with the new booking engine?
