Most Segments On UA Award?
« on: July 08, 2012, 10:20:11 AM »
Im trying to ticket an award with UA with 13 segments and apparently (the agent says) the computer is saying its too many segments.

Cant find info on max segments allowed (except RTW trips) so wondering whats the most someone has done?

Domestic is less than 16 IIRC
Don't think I ever did over 10. AC for sure allows 16 on int'l.

Totally fine. Flew two legs a couple months ago and actually had great kosher food.

I have not got longer then 9 parts, and then on one of the under 24 hour stopovers, the agent (many different ones actually) said that it cannot be with an overnight as there are to many segements to allow that. I thought that was pretty random.

I'm not trying to take this OT but I have a related question: I currently have booked DTW-IAH-SFO-HKG. On the return I have CNX-BKK-SIN-FRA-ORD-DTW all in First :). Since I only have 1 open jaw so far I'm trying to add a flight from ORD or DTW to HNL, making ORD or DTW a stopover.

I've called several times but they won't let me add it. Last guy I spoke to said it's within the routing rules, but the system is rejecting it because I have so many connections on my previous flights. Any advice on this?
