Fare basis mismatch


Postby Guest » 04 Apr 2011, 15:50

Hi folks,

I'm a newbie to the forum (thoroughly enjoying reading the trip reports in particular), and I was hoping some of you more seasoned travellers might be able to help me with a query :)

I have booked a bmi/Virgin codeshare flight through bmi, with Virgin flying the LHR-DXB leg of my journey. According to BMI, I have booked a Z fare for this leg which is showing as 'business' class on expedia and checkmytrip.com. I assumed this would map on to Virgin's own Z fare in UC - however, when I access the Virgin MMB webpage, my flights are showing in economy with an N fare ?|

Has this happened to anyone before, and any ideas what to do in these circumstances? I would rather have this resolved before turning up for my flight and finding that I have been downgraded with no recourse at the airport, but so far Virgin customer services have met my emails with silence... :w

Any advice much appreciated!

Did you intend to book UC or economy? If you booked and paid a fare that should be an UC fare, then you need to get in touch with bmi as you booked the flight through them.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for getting back to me so promptly. The expedia booking was explicitly made for 'business class', so I think there must be a gremlin in the system somewhere... I'll get on the case with bmi.

I thought you booked through bmi not expedia? So, to clarify, you intended and have paid a fare that should is like an UC fare (so £1500+).
