Can all be done on line. But changes to the initial booking has to be done within the 1st 24 hours of booking.

Trying to fly LAX JFK at the saver economy rate and all I can find is LAX EWR.
Any chance they would let me standby on a JFK flight?  Anyone have experience with this?
They were unable to waitlist me over the phone as OP suggested.
However, at the airport they were also unable to put me on standby, but they did confirm me on the JFK flight.
Not sure if this had to do with status or not.
Hey there! I am using WhatsApp.

If they want to, yes.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

HUCA. Or call right when the center is closing and have them price the itinerary, then string them along until they really want to go home. Then ask for a hold ;)

I was looking at a United flight that had availability at the saver award level. Now I see it is no longer available.
Should I keep checking back?
Is it like AA Saaver availability that changes from day to day?

Thanks.

By the way, I was used to the old avatar. Why the change?
