Trying to make flight plans for a couple when the procurement of tickets for one of couple is completely out of the couple's control? Extremely frustrating.

I just can't seem to get my work to do things in a timely fashion. More than a week now of "Yeah, you're going, just hang on a bit" ending with "Yeah, we'll book your tickets today" on Friday, but zero evidence that said tickets have actually been booked. And options for the other ticket for us are rapidly disappearing. And trying to decide if we should spend nearly $1k on a ticket when we don't know what kind of flight schedule I'll be on is the height of frustration.

Am I already on the Virgin flight that is almost completely out of seats? Do we have time to shift me to a United flight that has more room and is now cheaper because the Virgin flight has gone up in price? How much is it worth to fly home on the same plane? And if we're on the same plane, what are the chances that we'll be able to sit next to each other?

All for a vacation partly funded by work. It's making me want to avoid trying this again in the future.

What i've found that works (not useful for this one probly but....going on trip x for work: can you buy them and ask for reinbursement? Go talk to works' travel agent w/ your research...(most are human..:) and willing to help)

also start as early as possible and stay on top of the issue...

good luck

Already asked. My tickets must go through work's travel agent, they will not reimburse, and personal tickets cannot go through work's travel agent.
