That is frustrating.

I got LAX-EWR J with LH yesterday. Worked out nicely to close off my free OW from the summer.
Free OW? Was that the end of a trip? I thought only UA miles get you some sort of stopover/OW that can be booked later on down the road.

Unbelievable !

This was United earlier:



Wide-open to HNL in either direction, 3+ seats all summer long.

So I call SQ to book, and the rep tells me there's nothing at all open. This is what it looks like now:



Argggggh!

Just checked briefly a few minutes ago. There is availability from BOS-SFO-HNL, I believe.

Anyone mind explaining why SQ is the way to book the above routing above LH?

Less miles.

I would guess if someone has sq and doesn't have lh (which I belive the op has from the lifelock trial)
