    Hi all,

    I’m looking to book a flight on 31st August next year. It’s from Miami.

    By my calcs, the flight will be available today. I’m just trying to figure out what time though?

    The guide says best time to call is 00:30, but what time zone is that?

    Also the UK call centre closes earlier, what’s the best call centre to call?

    So it looks like both UK and US call centres will be closed, so I’ll try Australia? 

    Flights not available yet on SeatSpy so guessing it will be midnight GMT so 35 mins from now.

    Did you manage to book your flight? Possibly too late now but during BST seats are released around 1 am, not midnight.

    I was booking MIA-LHR last night too. Had an absolute nightmare getting through on the phone, calls kept dropping and took almost 15 minutes of trying to get through and the call was luckily answered straight away at 12:58 so only 2 minutes to spare.

    Absolutely ludicrous that we have to call US to speak to someone that was in Manchester, he was great though and held the 3 seats we needed straightaway even though it was over 2 bookings. All done by 1:15 and I looked to see that all club seats on both flights were gone. This morning only PE is left.

    OP – hope you got what you wanted.
