My boss checked his frequent-flyer mileage balance, and discovered that the lion's share of his miles expired at the end of 2014 after he didn't renew the credit card they were linked to. So I started looking at other flights, operating on the premise that we would have to go fully out of pocket for the cost of the tickets. I found a flight on a different airline, with only one stop of a reasonable duration, for less than $3000/ticket, and sent the info back to my boss (who is currently out of state himself with limited online access).

36 hours later, I still hadn't heard back from him...and the new flight I had found was now $80/ticket MORE than the non-stop flight on Turkish Air that we'd been looking at in the first place.

*sigh*

We're so close to getting everything booked I can practically hear the seagulls over the Bosphorus Strait. Which makes a delay like this all the more frustrating, especially with the price tag it looks like it may carry with it, as well.

Oh no -- I'm so sorry!

If he still has a card w the same company/airline, he might be able to get them reinstated, if he's a frequent business traveler with them.

That really sucks :/

There's not a lot of business travel involved with our company (which is probably why he let the card go, tbh).

The trip he's on currently is with family, so I'm trying not to interrupt him more than I absolutely need to, but it's hard not to obsess over the ticket prices until I hear from him again. :-/
