Can somebody please be so kind and search VIE-EWR on 06.08.18 with M&M, I want to see if there is a J open on that program. M&M only allows searches with &K in account. Or if somebody can tell me how to bypass that would also be great. UA has only Y open. TIA

Hi! Just wondering if anyone can help us. What is the best way to fly from Crackow to Denver on Sunday Aug. 12 or 13 hypothetically, we can fly into NY or Chicago and transfer from there. Is it better to use United Airlines miles or British Airways?

Trying to book with UA for 6 pax in Y, TLV-YYC.

I found a routing through Europe, TLV-VIE-ZRH-LHR-YOW-YYZ-YYC. (Overnighting in LHR and YOW)

Tried to book on the phone and they are having a hard time putting it together.

Am I correct that it should be 42.5 pp if they can put it all on one reservation?

Is it just HUCA or some other way to get it done?

Create your own itinerary days are over. If you cant create it as a one way online it will cost more than one award.

272000 Marriott = 134000 UA

Just realized 270000 Mar = 132000 UA, but does the extra 2000=2000 UA?

Doesnt make a difference. It does not price out on a one way.
