Very Interesting was searching on united for a award flight from NYC-BUD for the week of Feb 1 and the flights on OS LH AC ect: are only 57,500 not 70K does that happen on certain dates?
Going on for the past few days. Not all dates not all destinations work.

I have the option of taking a  flight arriving in LAX at 5:35am & the connection leaves LAX at at 6:05am,

now I know the MCT in LAX for domestic is 30 min the question is, is it realistic to make a connection in lax with 30 min?

Same terminal?
And what day of the week?
That early in the morning should be reasonably ok especially if it's the middle of the week and if you don't need to switch terminals.

I assume the same terminal, both flights are domestic UA.
It's Sunday morning.

Has anyone made a connection at LAX in 30 min or less?

It's a little bit of a crapshoot, they sometimes close the doors 10 or so minutes early. If you land on time you'll be fine, it's all Terminal 7, which is big but not that big. But if you come in a little late... Although if it's all one ticket they may hold the plane for you.

When booking the Verrazano as a saver award, and changing flight at the airport, would I need to find saver space for the return as well?

If anyone wants to pm me about this I would greatly appreciate it
I am guessing what this is about, and I tried whatever I can think of but it looks like I am not figuring this one out on my own

Just did a dumb move, excuse it here cuz it is past 2 now. Just booked a waived close-inn fee united award with my sapphire card instead of the club card. Now they are showing on the reservation that the luggage will cost money etc.. I won't be travelling on the reservation.

Your real mistake was paying the close-in fee.

Just google it.
im pretty darn sure he wrote that the fee was waived

Missed that. Oops.

Can't he just cancel and rebook if it's within 24 hours?

This question was probably asked a million time but how can I change an award booking within 24 hours of booking on a iPod/tablet? Keeps on asking me to select flight.

Looking to book 5 or 6 to TLV in summer, found economy  flight on UA EWR-TLV outbound perfect
On AC inbound, not so perfect since it stops in YYZ.
is 85k each

am using UA miles

is this the best use of miles, i could transfer amex to ANA but the fuel charge looks to be about 300 each on AC.

any other ideas?
