For what date? If there is / will be then it should show up on United site.

Awards usally open up closer to travel date.

LH has expanded availability for their own miles, so just because it's showing there it doesn't mean UA can book.
Did you see it anywhere else?
Is the flight less than 2 weeks out?

The only other place I saw it was on Lufthansa website for 2500 usd
flight is 3 weeks out. I have plenty of United miles and 1k status...not sure if that helps

It has to be available for awards on a saver level to be able to book with UA. Not likely over 2 weeks out.

You seem confused. What currency do you want to use, on what metal, and where are you searching?

so singaporeair will pick up austrian and turkish etc.. if they are options? even if its 2 stops?

I have singapore miles that I want to use to go from ORD to TLV, in J, I am just trying to find out the best way to search
