These are also 1 pqp/dollar, not what he was referring to. What he was referring to isn’t mentioned, but is possibly/probably also excluded?

They’ve already been playing this game for awhile by doing 15,600, 15.8k, 15.1k etc prices flights (and giving them @15k only to XN) to avoid partners. This blocking X is just a more confusing for the customer way to accomplish that. Seems like that’s part of the accomplishment here…?
What is the best way to search bookable United X availability now?

I recently downgraded my united card to a gateway, but on my upcoming reservation it still shows a free bag. Has anyone had this work for them in the airport? If I need to pay I would rather pay early and save. Also when I go through the steps of purchasing a bag it won't allow me to purchase my 'first' bag, rather a second bag, which costs more.

Also my wife is flying on a different confirmation number, I linked them but the chat agent said it's still up to the agent in the airport to decide if she will get a free bag since she's with me. Does anyone have experience with this.

@Dan Seems like the pattern for 30k as opposed to 40k flights to/from Europe is when at least one flight is a second tier partner such as Air Transport or even Air Belgium operating for LOT.
@Dan Now devalued even more than regular partner airlines. Seems to start at 45k now, and not 30k, or even 45k. Why are they trying to self destruct?

My United Basic Economy ticket dropped in price and I want to rebook.
How do I go about this? Do I upgrade the BE ticket to regular economy, and then rebook that to the cheaper option?

Wrong thread, but assuming you're after 24 hours, you can upgrade to regular economy and then cancel and rebook with the credit. Just keep in mind that the upgrade fee doesn’t get added to the ticket value, so the price drop would have to be more than the upgrade fee to justify it.

Understood- thank you.
What is the right thread for this? Searched and couldn't find.
