Thanks.

By the way, I was used to the old avatar. Why the change?
Shake things up a little i guess.

Just checked award availability on UA from BKK-PHL on 1/27/2015
The award pricing seems to be screwy (as with other discounted awards currently available)
First class awards pricing at both 80,000 and 130,000.
Maybe its because of partner pricing, not sure- figured I'd post.

I know, weird. And I also checked the "mixed cabins" - They are all the same cabins.

Yes. UA F via Partner F. And the intra Asia flight is in Y. If the intra Asia flight will be in F it will cost the partner rate even the trans pacific flight is on UA.

Are there blackout dates with UA awards? EWR-HNL has basically no Saver or Standard avail from June-August. Is that because we're too far away or because it's blacked out?

No black out dates.
So why would there be a ton of avail in Feb-Apr, nothing Jun-Aug and then random dates from Sep-Dec? Some summer flights have no J seats booked at all (if you look at the seat map), so why doesn't UA release any seats to awards?

No black out dates. They hope to sell the seats.
