Does having a UA CC give you expanded saver award for economy, business or both?
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

Only economy. Expanded business is only for elites.

I booked a flight to Puerto Rico using a combination of a travel voucher (received when volunteering to be bumped) and United quest credit card. Today I noticed that the flight is about $200 cheaper. Is there a way to safely rebook for the lower rate? I tried changing the flight to the existing flight, but it won't let me. Would I be safe changing the flight to another flight and then changing it right back? I just want to make sure I don't actually lose my current flight.

Someone posted trying to change the origin city to include or exclude sister airports, e.g. from EWR to NYC and vice versa. Then the flight that you are already on should show up. IIRC, it used to always show up, but they made it harder to change and save money.

Thanks, it's leaving out of Dulles Airport, and I tried changing it to Washington area airports, but it gave me an error. Changing it to BWI adds $3,000 lol

When you cancel an international award are the miles and fees/taxes fully refundable? Google search says yes but a ton of miles are involved and want to double check.

Hmm, look like they "fixed" it. What happens if you switch it back, does it show up?

Yes, just did it a couple weeks ago.

Four seats (across) in Polaris business are you better with the angled seats or straight seats?

@aishel I just had a similar situation with one of my flights, and it did work in the app and not on the desktop website. Switch to all area airports or vice versa and you will be able to select your flight and get a refund for the extra miles paid. United, please do not "fix" this.

United: United let me change my flight to any city in Europe for free, not just to the 3 airports listed on DDMS.

Had to get through to a supervisor though to get it done.

Do Club cardholders have the same award availability as elites?
