If I book a ticket for myself on either American or United using my own miles, then my huband books one for himself using his miles, is there any way to "link" these reservations?
I'm talking about a process similar to what cruise ships do: They can link one party's reservations with another's so that friends who book separately can be seated together in the dining room, debark together, etc.
If we book flights separately, there's the danger that, if something went wrong with the flight, we would not be treated as one party. For example, sometimes flights are cancelled and they rebook passengers by distributing them over several different flights, sometimes on different days. If two people weren't on the same reservation, they could presumably be split up -- which would be a pain.
(Transferring miles from one party to another isn't an attractive option because the fees they charge make it not worthwhile.)
Anyone know how to get two reservations linked as one party?
