kshandra: Rich Uncle Pennybags, pockets turned out and palms upturned, over a background of Monopoly money (Broke)
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 :/
