Question 552

    My UA status allows me free redeposit of miles from award tickets, and I'm thinking about making a speculative international reservation for myself, wife, and <1 year old daughter. I know from Travis's post that we would need to pay ~10% of the regular premium cabin fare for my daughter to be a lap child. QUESTION: would this be refundable if we redeposit the miles? Is it a better idea to wait to tell UA about the lap child until we know we're making the trip?

    I know I might really be in Ask Travis... Thanks!

    @ JG -- In your shoes I'd just wait to book the infant ticket when you know for sure you're going. It is refundable, but there's no advantage to booking it sooner rather than later.
