I was suppose to take this flight in June 2015 though I bought another ticket and travelled First on the same flight at the end — ditched it as I found a return Club World fare deal from Munich to Hong Kong via London for £780. I upgrade to First on the outbound for 30,000 Avuis. For the unused ticket I moved it to March 2016.
Because of last minute changes I needed to take a flight to Hong Kong as soon as possible. As a student purchased student fare tickets – slightly expensive however it gave me the possibility to change the flight date whenever I want for free – as long as the booked fare bucket is still available. This basically functions as a fully flexible ticket though no refunds can be made for unused sectors and has to be a return ticket.
As this ticket is booked via a travel agent I needed to phone from Edinburgh to Hong Kong to make that change: I stayed up late to write an e-mail requesting the change and I phoned in the early morning in the UK (late afternoon in Hong Kong) to reissue the ticket.
As the February school holiday was just around a week to go I therefore enjoyed an extra week of holiday while others are still working 🙂
