Title: HOT!!!!! UA glitch
Post by: ZCN on October 12, 2013, 10:35:09 PM
Just came across this - hope the link to FT is OK.[urlhttp://www.flyertalk.com/forum/united-mileageplus-consolidated/1511565-ua-sfo-hi-80-return-23th-31th-oct.html][/url]

I just booked CVG-LAS and have a confirmation number. I would recommend using a new account with no mileage in it. Not sure this will be honored but let the fun begin!!

Logged in to my milage account, started to book award flight - stopped at the page where insufficient mileage was shown.

 Opened another browser and started to book a paid flight - reached the page where credit card information was required - refreshed the previous award flight page and then refreshed the paid flight page - paid flight page only had the tax displayed $80 - booked the flight.

You book under revenue after going through the first few step in a different tab using reward.
The system must have it 'in your cart' at the mileage amount so when going to revenue it prices out using miles and doesn't have the mechanism (that it has under miles bookings) to say 'you do not have enough miles'.

Oh, I thought it was clear from what others have written. I signed into my MP account, chose my flights (in my case, JFK-MIA), then opened another tab and searched for the same flight as a paid ticket. When the payment page came up, I went back to the first tab, refreshed the page, then did the same to the second tab. Total came to $20.

It's 24 hours from eticketing.
Title: Re: HOT!!!!! UA glitch
Post by: rcarentals on October 13, 2013, 10:15:11 AM
the reason they are not ticketing is because "there are insufficient miles in the account" the first few people were lucky, the rest of us aren't getting our tickets ticketed. - without adding the miles in that is..
the system now will not issue the ticket until there are sufficient miles in the account. please correct me if i'm wrong.
Title: Re: HOT!!!!! UA glitch
Post by: avrumy on October 13, 2013, 10:21:56 AM
I once had this where I was able to book tickets with insufficient amount of mile sin my account. To my understanding what is happening is the airline is holding a reservation for you and if you can come up with the sufficient amount of miles for the award selected then they will ticket you and if not then it gets canceled.

You could try calling.
You could also try just showing up at the airport and letting United try to fix it then. 

Chances are slim that either of these would work... but if you feel like trying.

They're not slim.

Suggesting they may, will end up with the OP wasting his a good portion of his/her day trying.

Post by: mrcoolcom on October 14, 2013, 04:06:32 PM
Free tickets to anywhere with United airlines. This is what you do: go on united.com, Login with you milage plus, choose a miles flight, select both flights you want to book, then open a new window but leave the old one open as well. Select the same flights, booking with dollars this time. Refresh the first window, then refresh the second window. The second window should show that you have enough points to book the flight. Then you enter in your credit card info and just pay the tax/fee.
