I’ve booked a Business Class seat for myself and my younger daughter (3 months) for a SYD-AMS trip in June/July 2019 on Cathay Pacific .
I’ve been trying to get award seats for my wife and my daughter (3) on those same flights but have waitlisted them instead via the Asia Miles website.
I was also hoping to get a Companion ticket redeemed for my 3 yr old daughter but the request was rejected as no award availability on those flights, hence the decision to spend more points for a full ticket instead and have her on the waitlist.
Having read up on the changes Asia Miles have made to their award availability, my question is:
“Is it better to waitlist on the desired flights via the Asia Miles website or chance my luck instead 1-2 weeks out instead?”
Any advice or feedback would be much appreciated!
