I am grasping at straws here I know,
Due to my father diagnosed with terminal cancer my dream holiday, which was to be 25/10 - 21/11 NYC and Europe in CX J, BA F & QF F for me and the wife, we are unable to go.
One option we are considering is to change the either the inbound or outbound to make it a 2 weeks trip to just US or UK. This is incredibly difficult with finding late notice award positions not in whY.
I am reluctant to cancel the booking given that it was using USDM and getting decent routing that is no longer available.
Does anyone have any suggestions that can make it easier to still use these awards and making it a shorter trip??
Do i have the option of changing the names on the booking to forward it to someone else?
