There are several different ways to get space that are shareable, fyi

1) book connecting flights on partner airlines and if schedule changes screw your trip, force them to put you on UA metal.

2) transfer in points for a phantom LH (or other phantom space) flight then call and cry that you transferred your points for this trip and get them to put you on UA metal

I'll look for phantom space, of course I'm risking that I'll transfer the points and then they won't open the space but probably worth the risk

I find it surprising that UA would do that (though they definitely on occasion do), since they technically can reverse a transfer (though obviously they don't typically).

It's definitely doable IMHO. I'd risk it for sure.
Of course that assumes the taxi is on time (probably should order it earlier and have him wait until then, make sure it's not a Jew), that there is no major traffic jam, etc.

Pretend to be me with my flight info. There are sick people out there.

Depends how quickly after shabbos you can leave.
Consider staying closer to EWR for shabbos?
I flew M'S from newark with swiss similar window from Brooklyn and we had Monsey people on the flight too. EWR is dead at that hour.

But thanks for the post. I grabbed the mtzsh flight. Now deciding if I can possibly make it... No pre check (never got around to it), leaving from Monsey and checking in baggage
Book a return via SFO?

It's definitely doable IMHO. I'd risk it for sure.
Of course that assumes the taxi is on time (probably should order it earlier and have him wait until then, make sure it's not a Jew), that there is no major traffic jam, etc.
I just realized that the time you posted is 60 min zman. I keep 72.

You don't need to find 4 seats if your name is Daniel Eleff (regardless of whether you're the owner of DD.com). I'm considering a legal name change, btw.

I should've named my daughter Daniela in that case.

Maybe one of these or some combination?
-Booked a saver business award based on IN/R class availability.
-Book a saver award for a companion in business or first regardless of available award space if GS member is on a revenue ticket.
