Air China FTW

If you're trying to book a flight on the Air China website and get a "430450: Not Authorised" error at the final step it may be because you cannot book flights outside of your home country. I was trying to book a flight for several weeks and had already harassed several Air China staff insisting that their website was broken before they rang "head office" and the situation was finally explained. The catch is:

  • You cannot use an Australian credit card on the Thai website, and
  • You cannot book on the Australian website from a computer in Thailand.

Which means the only thing you can do is ring a friend in your home country to make the booking for you.

Hooray for informative error messages, and hooray for Air China. I hope their planes work better than their website.
