    I've been trying to book a oneway award on NH using Lifemiles - the space is there, as it shows up on United. Mix cabin, F/J but it keeps giving me an error. Anyone have any idea why? It's also a points+cash redemption.

    Thanks!

    I know ANA only allows round-trip awards when using their own miles - I wonder if they have the same restriction for partners?

    They dont - I booked ANA one way using SQ. I tried a rt booking and got the same error. I emailed Lifemiles the details and asked for a manual booking since that's a thing but I wanted to see if anyone else ran into errors.

    Mixed cabin is sometimes hard, connections in random cities are sometimes hard, dealing with Lifemiles is almost always hard.

    FINALLY got it ticketed, after trying again. When it works Lifemiles is kinda awesome, ESPECIALLY mixed cabin awards.

    JFK-NRT on ANA F is 90k
    JFK-NRT-KUL on ANA F and J is 92k. Incredible.
