Am i worrying over nothing?

Jump to last reply

I booked (heavily) discounted Biz class tixs on Qatar LHR to NRT waaay back in February for flights in November

Since then i have been reading that Qatar are prolific bumpers, which of course has stressed me out a bit. I hadn't had my e ticket from the travel agent (who said they don't issue till a couple of weeks or so before the flight) anyway i finally got those today and noticed that one of the seats I had pre booked was missing off the intinerary.
So rather than call the TA i tried to log onto Qatar airways and retrieve my booking to check my seats choices were still showing (which i have done many time this year to put in API and choose my seats)

Anyway it keeps coming up with" error please check last name or reservation numbers"....
So i called the web support at Qatar and he kept saying you should be able to do it you must try both surnames.... (which i had) he then say oh well try later. (although he did confirm my booking was visible to him)

The reason i am nervous is I wanted to check in online to hopefully reduce my chances of being bumped (I realise I can't do it yet) but if I can't even retreive my booking i won't be able to do that in a couple of weeks...

Maybe i should be patient and see if it comes back up in a few hours time, I do know this is the day they have officially joined One world so maybe there are some web issues - but he didnt say and the actual web page is ok.

So, what would you do?
