Why is this thread in GD?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

If it was a $10k phone call, even if each call was 20 minutes it would still be $770 an hour. In this case, assuming there was 160 AA at stake valued at 1.4, that's $170 an hour. Depends on your perspective and what's at stake.

Still you couldn't pay me to do it for you.

Walmart 2day shipping, I mean 5 day shipping refund..

 It's the normal btw for the shipping to take 5 days so the first offer is can I give you 10% back?
 Might be gezel, I called once and asked about my order and she didn't really speak English so had to disconnect the call but before hanging up she went and offered me 10% Off after waiting on hold for 5 min.
 I recalled again and had a rep who understood English and asked about my order if all shipped? And she offered the same 10%, am I suppose to expect 20%? Or its gezel to take both discounts?!

(Basically 10% Coupon for items shipped and sold by walmart, almost like the amazon move promo! Lol)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Happened a couple of months ago but still feel great about it:

Transferred UR>UA in order to book TLV-ZRH-JFK in J for 3 pax (UA.com was showing as available) but turns out it was phantom. Took about 7 HUCAs but finally got a supervisor to open up 3 seats in J on the direct TLV-EWR at saver rate. Oh, and it's for motzei succos, probably the most popular time of year for that flight.

How did you get them to do that? What did you tell them ?

They have an option to open saver award ?

Supervisors do. It has to do with phantom availability.

Supervisors can do whatever they want if it's UA metal. I just did a really good job at making my case for why they should open space for me.

not only supervisor's I had a GS agent
HUCA HUCA HUCA!!!!!! Global Service  at its best!There were 13 people on standby for this supposedly fully booked flight (40 on standby when I checked in)and somehow after calling 3 times the agent was able to confirm us (party of 4) in economy+
On the 8pm flight out! Fortunately it was delayed to 9:50. Would not have made it otherwise
Got home quickly packed, ordered Chinese to the Airport-it arrived just as we finished checking in our luggage, even had enough time to eat it at the Art  lounge terminal B.

Now we need to find a hotel for the night..

What was your case? How did you get them to fold and open the flight ?

He transfered UR to UA, and it ended up being phantom. That's a fault on united's part, but can  still take you at least 7 HUCAs.
