Can I transfer Chase UR from my account to my brother's United account? He's not an authorized user or household member. Tried searching but the results didn't match the query.

Booked a cheap paid flight to TLV in Y, if award space opens up in J, can I book that, fly J outbound and Y return? Will they cancel my tickets?

All I can suggest is, if award space opens, it means probably also upgrade space is open, upgrade the outbound fareclass to W or higher if you're not already there and buy a GPU (they're $400 on Ebay)

Will probably be cheaper overall then booking a new ticket with points.

I hear, is there a tutorial somewhere on upgrading a fare class you already purchased?

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.
