Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

If United is not showing any business saver availability then you canít book it with any other partner

Am I missing something or you are being sarcastic?

If I book an award ticket with UA, can I add a connection later?
For example, SFO to ZRH, and then add LA to SFO later? (not a stopover in SFO, just a connection - less than 24 hrs)

What about booking LA to ZRH, and only available now through SFO, if something direct opens later, is there a charge to change it?

If I see a Swiss flight on United.com, but not on Aeroplan, does that mean only United can book it?

Is there any risk to book on ANA a *A  award, for  someone that's not your family?
Anyone please, that could answer this?

Yes if you book an RT. However, if you split into two 1 ways it will be about $700 total. Also use AC as they do not charge YQ on LX
