Up In The Air / Re: United award flights
« on: July 23, 2019, 05:00:20 AM »
had interesting award ticket story was trying to get an economy priced award 1 way tkt originating NYC>TLV on ua or partners last week in august for the economy lowest award 42,500 points
it showed available and when i tried to book showing 5 seats left at the end before going thru always received error message
when i called UA they said the connecting flt out of europe to TLV wasnt avalable in X cls and the system will eventually update to show its not available
after trying for 2 weeks myself
i callled today and said i can go any airport jfk,ewr,phl any day bet 25-28 aug guy puts me on hold for 10 minutes comes back with a NON STOP UA FLT AND EVEN OFFERED ME A CHOICE of afternoon or evening flt i asked him what he did and he  said he passed it to seat allotment or revenue management
and they came back with the non stop option on UA
so moral of the story never give up keep trying and  everything and i mean EVERYTHING IS CONTROLLED FROM ABOVE!
Very nice!

United seems to give reward ticket passengers the same level of service as paying passengers as opposed to some airlines that treat you with contempt for utilizing a "free" ticket.

I just put my brother on a United business class award tickket booked with Aegean miles (45k one way LAX-TLV + 5 euro) and by mistake only entered his middle and last name.
I called Aegean to add the first name but they said they can't touch the ticket. I called United who also said they can't add the name but promised that if Aegean add a note to the reservation with the first name, they would let it go through.

Sure enough, my brother had no problem at the airport.

I have a feeling that the rebooking agents purposely don't offer direct flights or the best connections if there are not many seats left. The agent knows that the pax usually has no way of knowing what flight options are available so they offer mediocre connections that the pax will agree to and save the good seats for elites/paying customers.

I have had plenty of cases where my clients were rebooked automatically or by an airport agent and when I checked, I was able to find much better connections or even space on direct flights which the airport agents never offered. 

Lots of business class availability from SFO-TLV on United

Also most of the month is wide open for economy.

United are very tough when it comes to Israeli aviation law.
They deny claims for absurd reasons.
They probably figure that most people won't take them to court even if it is small claims court.

It won't get better unless they are slapped with a big class action or are hit with a huge fine.

"Price is Right" is completely irrelevant for an auction.
No. Don't really understand how that works.
It means you offer $1 above the minimum rate and hope that many offer the minimum.

Plenty times. Rarely ever a lose. Only if you get "outbid" by 5 others.
Did you "price is right it"?

May have been mentioned upthread but both DL flights JFK-TLV July 22 business class are available to partners, as well as the 15:35 departure on July 11 and 14 and the 23:06 on July 30

I do not see any availability at all on virgin atlantic? Is this JFK-TLV?
