Is there any effect on what name is submitted when booking a ticket and what frequent flyer account is used for booking the flight?
My Hypothetical Situation: My partner and I want to go to Europe in 2021. I am a Bronze FF but I have a close friend who is a Gold FF. I have enough points to upgrade our seats to business however I may not receive the upgrade due to my FF status. So can I transfer points to my friends FF account, book the tickets in my name and then use their FF account and status with my transferred points to request a upgrade with a higher chance of acceptance?
