About how long does it take for UA to ticket partner flights?

After how long should I be concerned if it hasn't ticketed yet?

$150, but you can change the dates for free.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Who ever you booked through (in your case UA), but if you book through US or AC, then no.
