So if I have an award ticket for 4/30 from TLV to EWR, is the best thing to just hold it and hope they cancel the flight so I can avoid the redeposit fee?

Ah, you mean ThePointsGuy was talking about "free cancellations" that you can cancel and get a voucher without any fees I guess.

For UA you only mention changes not cancellations. I see several sources saying that new tickets booked can also be cancelled for free:

My question was if this also applies to award tickets.

Meaning, not true?

Does the current UA cancellation policy apply to new award tickets booked? Meaning, will I need to pay a redeposit fee? I know that previously booked flights do incur it even when booked for April.

So what's the point of this if it's nearly impossible to get PR-1 at the airport? Is the system setup to prioritize Plan B passengers prior to 24 hours before the flight?

7
Do the GAs in TLV even know how to do this?

8
What's the link to the upgrade list?

I can also confirm this still works. Just took me 5 reps and multiple disconnected calls to finally get it setup. I read somewhere on FlyerTalk that you no longer need to ask for PR-1 status at the airport and that the system now does this automatically. What has your experience been?

Attached please see what the ticket shows when done correctly (I hope).

You can do now, but it's a lot harder.

Thanks. Any chance you can expand on that? What do I need to tell them?

11
Thanks! But now is it possible to add on plan b once the economy saver amount has already been debited? Or do I need to refund and then re-book with a competent rep?

I tried doing this one a TLV - EWR leg which was priced at 42.5, but the supervisor said that due to the new dynamic pricing, this flight was not eligible for the waitlist procedure.

In general, she said that they first book the ticket and then debit the additional miles. I thought it had to be done from the outset. Is this rep just totally off base? Is it possible to add on plan b once the economy saver amount has already been debited?

13
Also, if you purchase premium economy and then are upgraded can you get that refunded?

14
If the Saver Coach is priced at 55K miles for one leg, (instead of the base 42.5K) how many additional miles would need to be debited to book a plan B business saver? Would it be only an additional 20K?

15
Is it possible to request plan B on only 1 leg of a round trip? Or, do you need to book each leg separately to make that work?
