Trip Notes: 4 Consecutive Transoceanic Itineraries With IRROPS, Here’s How We Handled Them

-Find dozens of trip reports by clicking on the “Trip Notes” tab on top of the DansDeals banner at the top of this site.
-Follow my travels on Instagram @DansDeals
———————————————————————

IRROPS is industry jargon for irregular operations, when delays or cancellations force you to be accommodated on another flight.

We’ve had a string of IRROPS flights running back to our last 4 transoceanic itineraries. Some would call that bad luck, but I’m definitely of the attitude that everything happens for a good reason. Some of them worked out better than can be imagined, others are still in the works, but here’s how we handled the IRROPS.

When USAirways migrated their fare classes to match American’s it released award seats on routes that almost never had awards available. I quickly nabbed 4 business class awards to spend Purim in Israel.

On the day of the flight I always use the airline’s website or flightaware.com to track the inbound segments of flights I’m going to take. Our Cleveland to Philadelphia flight was coming from Charlotte and Louisville before that. In the morning, those were showing on time, but about 5 hours before the flight, the flight from Charlotte to Louisville was delayed for mechanical reasons. I called USAirways, but as they didn’t post a delay yet for the Cleveland to Philadelphia flight there was nothing they could do.

Rather than play the waiting game at home we all packed into the car 4.5 hours before the flight to try our luck at the airport. On the way to the airport I got the automated phone call that the Cleveland to Philadelphia flight would be delayed. We called several USAirways and American agents, but they all said the same thing. As it was a mileage ticket the only thing they were allowed to offer was coach class on another airline or the next available USAirways flight to Tel Aviv in 6 days.

Airport agents always have more power than phone agents, so that’s what we were banking on.

Alas at the airport, the agent repeated the same thing, since we were on award tickets she was only able to rebook us on another airline in coach. Then the agent proceeded to tell me that the flight would be leaving Louisville for Charlotte shortly and would be able to get us to Philadelphia on time. The agent next to her overheard her say that and laughed, saying that there was no way that we would make our connection in Philadelphia.

Time to charm her.

“But we’ve been saving up these miles to fly in business class to Israel for years.”

OK, so it didn’t take me years to earn the miles, but for many years I had indeed been saving and waiting to use the miles to fly USAirways business class to Israel as it was the best seating option from the US to Israel, and I had already flown on Delta and United to Israel in business class. Finding enough business class seats on this flight for the whole family is extremely rare.

After going on a charm offensive she was ready to fight for us. She called her help desk who repeated the same story, but she went to bat for us. They wanted her to find another OneWorld option, but there was nothing that would work out of Cleveland that night. So finally they agreed to move the 4 of us to United. Luckily, we arrived at the airport early as that allowed us to catch United’s flight to Newark.

It’s actually pretty rare for United to have 4 empty business class seats to Tel Aviv just hours before the flight, but luckily for us one of the United flights to Tel Aviv the day before was cancelled, so they operated 3 flights to Tel Aviv on March 2nd. We were in coach to Newark, but got the all aisle access middle business class seats in rows 8 and 9 which were great.

Of course we didn’t have kosher meals, but New Kosher Special delivers $40+ orders to Newark airport free of charge, and they make some of the best Sesame and General Tso chicken around. I double wrapped some in tinfoil and the United flight attendants were more than happy to warm it up for us. BYOK FTW!

United actually found a kosher meal for us for breakfast.

We had some friends booked on our flight from Philadelphia to Tel Aviv and they had plenty of kosher meals due to us not making that flight 😀

We were booked in the middle of row 2 and 3 and they told us there was actually a large dog in row 1 in the middle. At the time Rafi was terrified of dogs, so the United flight actually worked out for the best.

OK, it really worked out for the best as we were booked into paid business class and each earned a boatload of miles:

And I did get to try the USAirways configuration a week later on the return. Much better for solo travelers, but not significantly better for couples. And United’s service was better than USAirways. All a moot point now as American has discontinued that flight for mysterious reasons.

2. Monday, April 27, 2015, United: HNL-MAJ-KWA-KSA-PNI-TKK-GUM-ROR

No need to rehash this one, you can read all about it here. An undocumented dog was brought onto the Island Hopper flight, causing a delay that made us misconnect in Guam.

At first we declared the trip in vain and were rebooked to go home early the next morning in order to get back to our families before Shabbos, as originally planned. But that night I made a phone call to my amazing wife who forbade me from coming home without snorkeling in Palau’s otherworldly Jellyfish Lake, and AJK refused to allow me to experience that without him. After some cajoling, United rebooked us to Palau and allowed a bonus 2 night stopover in Tokyo before flying home on Sunday.

With 25 hours in Guam I got in some great snorkeling at Ypao Beach, with a day in Palau we had the time of our life, and then we spent an amazing Shabbos in Tokyo and a night at the awesome Park Hyatt Tokyo.

United gave us 10K compensation miles and a couple hundred dollars in vouchers for the inconvenience, plus AJK also made out like a bandit with tens of thousands of Aegean miles due to being rebooked in revenue classes. Alas I tried crediting my ANA revenue first class flight to United and wound up with nothing…lesson learned!

———————————————————————————————————————–

3. Wednesday, November 11, 2015, American: CLE-JFK-LHR

The worst flying experience of my life as told here.

I thought we had booked the bargain of the century, $446+30K Avios for business class tickets with 37K Avios rebated after the flight.

Instead it was just a nightmare.

We ran around the airport, from gate to gate, from club to club, and making phone calls trying to get re-accommodated after our American flight was delayed for mechanical reasons, but only Delta had 4 business class seats available that night and American refused to rebook on Delta due to the termination of their interline agreement.

When the lounge agent told us that our best shot at getting to London was running to another American flight and flying in coach, we did just that. Only to learn that first we had to personally go to baggage claim to recheck our bags as American’s policy was that their baggage agents couldn’t do that. The flight doors were closing, so there was no time to do that and we weren’t about to fly to London knowingly leaving our clothes, stroller, diapers, wipes, kids toys, and everything behind.

Back at the lounge the agents told us they confirmed with baggage that they reloaded our bags onto our original flight that was still awaiting a part being flown into LGA and then driven to JFK.

After waiting from 3 pm until after midnight our flight was cancelled. We accepted tickets on British Airways early in morning and turned down hotel vouchers. No point in shlepping to a hotel for a few hours with kids, we’d just get our bags and hang out at the gate. The lounge agents confirmed that our bags would be waiting for us.

They weren’t anywhere to be found.

American’s Twitter team promised me several times that an agent would come help us, but nobody ever showed up. After camping out the night in JFK agents arrived, but they still had no clue where our bags were. Rather than travel to London and arrive before Shabbos with no bags or stroller we opted to declare the trip in vain. American refused to book us on Delta from JFK, so we had to go to LGA to catch a flight home.

Our bags were discovered in Chicago 3 days later and returned to us. I still have no idea why they were sent to Chicago and why that information wasn’t scanned into their system. American reimbursed us for $147 of incidentals spent in the meantime.

An automated email apologized to all of the passengers on the cancelled flight and offered 20K miles each in compensation.

For reasons I don’t understand, we all got credit as if we flew the British Airways flight, despite the AA agent cancelling that ticket. That also triggered half of the transatlantic bonus, meaning we each got another 20K miles.

In the mess, Rafi left his tablet at the gate. Miraculously AA found it and I asked and was promised that it would be sent via Ground. AA sent it custom critical express and I wound up being charged $100 by Fedex. AA refused to reimburse that charge, but promised 10K miles to make up for it, though they have yet to post those miles.

AA refused to allow us to rebook the trip. I filed a DoT complaint but the DoT has been silent.

AAs Twitter team did have a customer service executive reach out to me, but she hasn’t fixed much.

They won’t compensate for anything more than the original 20K miles that all passengers on the flight automatically received. They won’t rebook the trip.

They did promise to work with BA so that I’d get a refund. 3 months later and I haven’t received a refund of the 30K Avios per person used for the tickets. They refunded $1,100 of the $1,784 used for the tickets, though I have no idea why they refunded that amount.

I nag AA’s Twitter team once a week for an update, and all they ever say is that it’s being worked on. Everyone seems completely unempowered to fix a thing.

Over 3 months after the incident I’m no longer holding my breath.

There’s a good reason American captured last place in the Wall Street Journal’s ranking of the airlines. They’ve managed to take the worst of USAirways and American to become a truly bumbling airline, worst overall, worst in cancelled flights, worst in mishandled baggage, a complete embarrassment:

 

 

 

 

Still trying to find the positive in this one, but I’m sure our families were happy to have us safe at home. The Paris terrorist massacre occurred on the weekend we were supposed to be in Europe.

4. Monday, January 25, 2016, United: CLE-EWR-HNL-LIH:

I nabbed lie-flat business class seats from Newark to Honolulu and back months ago. It’s a bargain award at just 30K Singapore miles or 40K United miles for a flight that’s nearly as long as Newark-Tel Aviv.

Then along came Jonas. I knew it would be bad, I just didn’t know how bad.

But I wasn’t taking any chances. As soon as the monster predictions started coming in I nabbed 4 United Global First class saver award seats from Chicago to Honolulu on Thursday (These are 40K miles via Singapore or 50K miles via United). When I had previously searched this route it was operated with lame recliner seats in business class, but it had been switched to a 3 class international plane with lie-flat first and business classes. The same plane that will operated transcontinental flights over the next few months.

 

Newark-Honolulu didn’t have 4 seats available for another week after our flight, but I grabbed those as well.

And sure enough, United cancelled our Monday morning flight from Cleveland to Newark. The next available flight they were able to offer in business class was 1.5 weeks later.

Instead, I just had United cancel the flight and I used the backup that I booked. The agent was more than happy to open up award space back to Newark 2 days after our originally booked return flight due to the cancelled flight.

We had flown in Global First to Hawaii 2 years ago with carseats. Unfortunately, United installed shoulder seat belts in Global First in the meantime and the flight attendants would not let us use our carseats with them and downgraded us to business class while making 4 business class passengers very happy. That worked out OK though. United’s business class is an antiquated 2-4-2 configuration with alternate rows facing backwards and forwards. 4 seats aren’t ideal for most people, but it worked out well for our family of 4, probably even better than first class would have been for us. Plus, United refunded the extra 40K miles used for the difference between business and first class and awarded us with 35K miles and $600 in travel vouchers as compensation for being downgraded.

Overall, we were blown away by the service from United and by their excellent new kosher meals that they now serve from Hawaii. But more on that in the trip report…

Virgin Australia Appears To Be Honoring Ticketed Australia Glitch Tickets, Cancelling Unticketed Reservations; Here’s Where You Should Credit Your Miles

Yesterday Virgin Australia had $148 tickets from Sydney to Los Angeles one-way or $251 round-trip and hundreds of DansDeals readers nabbed a great deal!

Most passengers received eTicket numbers and it appears that those tickets will be honored.

Some passengers who booked late or whose form of payment was rejected never received an eTicket number, and they have received cancellation notices.

Sydney to Los Angeles is 7,488 miles in distance one-way or 14,976 round-trip.

If you credit those miles to Air Berlin, Delta, Etihad, Hawaiian, Singapore, or Virgin Atlantic there’s a 50% cutback on this T class fare, so you’ll earn 3,744 miles one-way or 7,488 round-trip.

You probably shouldn’t do that.

If you have an Australian address you can enroll in Virgin Australia’s Velocity program. That program also has a 50% cutback on this fare, but if you’re flying between February 16-May 31 or July 18-September 16 you can enroll here for double miles! That means you’ll earn the full 7,488 miles one-way or 14,976 round-trip.

Virgin Australia also allows families to pool their miles together. Or you can transfer miles to family members.

Finally, they also allow you to convert miles to Singapore at a 1.35:1 ratio.

That means 14,976 Virgin miles will become 11,093 Singapore miles, which is better than crediting the flight to Singapore directly. Plus you can accumulate all of your family’s miles together into one Virgin or Singapore account!

Both Virgin Australia and Singapore have very strong points.

Virgin Australia allows you to book short-hauls on Delta for 6,900 miles one-way. Though you need to find Delta saver space to book those, which can be tricky.

Singapore allows you to book awards on United at a significant discount to what United charges to most destinations. Awards on United to places like Hawaii and Israel are a bargain when booked via Singapore.

However Singapore miles expire after 36 months and aren’t extended with activity, while Virgin Australia miles can be extended for another 36 months after account activity. Delta miles never expire.

Delta Nationwide Award Sale To Europe!

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.

Delta sent me an email about an award sale if you have a Delta credit card like the Delta Gold, Delta Platinum, Delta Reserve, or Delta Business AMEX. However the sale appears to work even if you don’t have a credit card!

Although the email lists just 11 specific routes, it actually appears to work in coach from any US city to any European city!
It also works from any US city to London in business class.

After testing on numerous cities, the pattern appears to be:
-Coach flights from the Eastern and Central time zones to Europe are 42K miles round-trip.
-Coach flights from the Mountain and Pacific time zones to Europe are 48K miles round-trip.
-Business flights from the Eastern and Central time zones to London are 87K miles round-trip.
-Business flights from the Mountain and Pacific time zones to London are 100K miles round-trip.

Rules:
-Book by February 18, 2016
-Travel on select dates between March 4, 2016 and May 31, 2016.
-7 day minimum stay requirement.
-Round-trip required.

Note that it won’t work for most dates, so use Delta’s flexible 5 week calendar to help find valid dates. Availability seems to be best in April.

You can transfer points instantly from cards like The Amex EveryDay Preferred Card or The Amex EveryDay Card.

The Preferred card awards 1.5 points per dollar everywhere, 3 points per dollar on Uber and gas, and 4.5 points per dollar on groceries if you make 30 transactions per month.

The EveryDay card awards 1.2 points per dollar everywhere and 2.4 points per dollar on Uber and groceries if you make 20 transactions per month.

You can alsotransfer points from consumer charge cards like the American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card and The Platinum Card® from American Express, and from business charge cards like the AMEX Business Gold Rewards Charge Card or The Business Platinum Card. 

Post where you book award travel to!

Uber is a pretty awesome app. I’ve done day trips to cities like Chicago and NYC without having to rent a car thanks to UberX rides that are cheaper than a taxi and far more convenient. And while people wait for an hour in the taxi line I breeze right into a waiting car.  I even earn Starpoints for using Uber on top of 3 points per dollar for charging Uber rides to my Everyday card. This quarter you can even earn 5 points per dollar with Chase Freedom.

If you’re new to Uber you can get a free $15 Uber ride via this referral link.

Existing users can go to the promotion field in the Uber app and enter the following code for a free 30 minute Uber ride: smartwaterfashion
Unfortunately it doesn’t say when the ride must be taken by.

Sony Alpha a6000 24 MP Mirrorless Digital Camera With Power Zoom Wide Angle Interchangeable Lens For $489 Or Less Via eBay Daily Deals

Sony Alpha a6000 24 MP Mirrorless Digital Camera With Power Zoom Wide Angle Interchangeable Lens For $489 Via eBay Daily Deals

Check this link to see if you are eligible and opt in to earn 10% back with eBay bucks, that’s $48.90 back on this purchase!

The A6000 sells for $648 from Amazon with great 4.6 star reviews.

Note that Sony has announced the successor to this camera, the A6300. It takes 4K video and has even faster auto-focus than the already zippy A6000. However the price is a whopping $998 for the body or $1,148 for the kit.

I’ve been using the A6000 for 2 years now and love it, it takes fantastic pictures very quickly. The quality of pictures in low-light situations and with zoom are far better than from even the most advanced smartphones. And I can easily transfer the pictures to my phone over WiFi or even use my phone as a remote with the phone displaying the camera screen.  The viewfinder also does wonders when it’s sunny out.

Mirrorless digital cameras offer SLR type performance and sensor size in a compact and intuitive package. In fact it even does things better than an SLR, such as video. It’s bigger than the point and shoot you might be used to, but the pictures it takes are just incredible. In a pinch it can still fit into your pocket even with the 16-50 lens on, something that can’t be done with an SLR.

-24 MP APS-C CMOS sensor
-ISO 100-25600 (expandable to 51200)
-Hybrid AF with 179-point focal plane phase-detection and 25 contrast detect points
-Up to 11 FPS continious shooting
-3-inch tilting LCD with 921,000 dots
-OLED electronic viewfinder with 100% coverage and 1.4 million dots
-Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC

Delta: The Most Reliable Airline…For Honoring Price Mistakes

I have to give Delta credit where it is due.

I generally avoid flying them as their miles are so pitiful compared to the other carriers. Delta has so little respect for their mileage collectors that they don’t even publish an award chart anymore. The price is what they say it is and it’s likely to be astronomical.

But people that do fly Delta report a level of customer service and timelines that’s a big step up from the other major carriers. I just can’t bring myself to fly an airline that hates their mileage collectors to such an extent.

But credit is owed to them in honoring fare glitches.

American and United have refused to honor several glitches. United’s 4 mile island (though some DD readers did get to fly on that one) and $45 first class London tickets come to mind. People that held $442 business class tickets to Asia on American found their reservations cancelled.

But Delta’s track record is awesome.

They honored $150 tickets to Europe in 2011.

They honored $370 tickets to Israel via Europe and even allowed people to upgrade to a nonstop flight for free in 2012.

They honored thousands of $50 round-trip first class fares from places like NYC to Alaska, California, and Hawaii in 2013. They even honored the tickets of thousands more people who didn’t receive ticketing confirmations.

They honored $10 fares from Vancouver to Los Angeles in January of this year.

-And they are honoring the first class tickets from Canada to the US for 250 miles+$0 from last month as well.

Lots of readers bought Delta tickets sold via Virgin Australia from Sydney to Los Angeles earlier today. Time will tell if these are honored as well, though that decision will rest with Orbitz and Virgin Australia, not with Delta. Stay tuned!

HURRY! Virgin Australia: Sydney To Los Angeles For $148 One-Way Or $251 Round-Trip! Los Angeles To Sydney For $591 Round-Trip!

Update, 2pm EST: DEAD! 

———————————————————————————————-

American Express is a DansDeals.com advertiser.
Earn 3 points per dollar on airfare with the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card or the AMEX Business Gold Rewards Card.

Bookable on Orbitz. Orbitz tickets are refundable until 11pm ET tomorrow.

In order to find this deal try searching from your desktop and be sure to use the Orbitz link from this post. Going directly to Orbitz won’t work!

Many Virgin Australia flights departing from Australia to the US have massive price drops after selecting them.

These prices only appear to drop when departing from Australia, not when departing from the US. However you can book a one-way from Los Angeles to Sydney on sale for $443 and a one-way return for $148. Or you can always use miles for a one-way to Australia and then fly back to the US for just $148.

There are also cheap flights from Brisbane and Melbourne to Los Angeles with this deal.

To find these fares just go to Orbitz and narrow your search to Virgin Australia:

The flights will appear to be expensive:

But select one of those flights (both the Delta and Virgin Australia operated flights will work) and the price will plummet to $148 one way from Sydney to Los Angeles:

Or $251 round-trip from Sydney to Los Angeles:

Be sure to check all of the flight options if one of the flight times don’t drop in price.

I’m still working on gathering valid dates, but all of the following dates work on the outbound flight from Los Angeles to Sydney:
February: 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29
March: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29, 31.
April: 5, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29.

September 2, 4, 5, 6

If you’re booking a round-trip from Sydney just start with a valid outbound date and then pick a return date, select the flights, and see if the price drops. If it doesn’t just try another return date until you get one where the price drops.

Post a comment if you book this amazing deal!

How long should you spend down under?

Back in 2010 Mimi and I flew around the world on AA’s defunct round-the-world award and for Australia we stopped off in Melbourne, Sydney, Tasmania, and the Whitsunday Islands. Truly an awesome country!

-3-5 days in Sydney would give you enough time to experience the phenomenal Park Hyatt, climb the Harbour bridge, check out the Opera House, pet some Koalas and Kangaroos, and have a day in the Blue Mountains.

-4-6 days in Melbourne would allow for a road trip of the sublime Great Ocean Road and the breathtaking Grampians before going to to Malborune for Shabbos at the excellent Park Hyatt which is around the corner from a great Chabad House. A flight from Sydney to Melbourne is 4.5K BA Avios with no fuel surcharges.

-2-4 days in Hamilton Island or Cairns would give you time to snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef. If you’re based in Hamilton Island you’ll also be able to checked out famous Whitehaven Beach and the Whitsunday Islands. A flight from Sydney to Hamilton Island is 7.5K BA Avios with no fuel surcharges. Sydney to Cairns is 10K Avios.

-We spent 4 nights covering the entire beautiful island of Tasmania without realizing just how much driving that would entail. Doing over a week would have been ideal.  A flight from Sydney to Hobart is 4.5K BA Avios with no fuel surcharges.

-We didn’t make it to more remote places like Uluru, Kangaroo Island, Perth, or the Australian Outback, but perhaps on a future trip?

Then again 10K BA Avios can also get you from Sydney to New Zealand. That’s been on my bucket list for a very long time…
