Can You Still Get United ETCs?
« on: April 07, 2021, 09:18:46 AM »
2 new changes started at United since Apr 1. First of all, they are resuming full service on planes, so they will be serving meals, and you can order kosher.
2nd, and this is according to a helpful manager on the premier phone line, they completely stopped issuing ETC. I had a reservation that was booked in part with an ETC, and was cancelled before Apr 1. At the time, they issued a future travel credit, which is only valid for 1 year, and can only be used for that traveler. I requested to change it into ETC, but they said it is no longer possible. They are not issuing them at all any more.
Nir sure if I should huca, or is this really their new policy, but the manager who told me this was very helpful, and she herself did not like this new policy...

Are you sure about the KSMLs?

UA.com says only to TLV:

My flight is to TLV
When I look at the reservation online, it says that "Special meals aren't available for any of the flights in your itinerary." However, the agent put in the request for me (and an agent on phone just confirmed that the request is showing on my reservation)

This is what they responded when I asked for KSML...
120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

They've been TLV only for the past year.
