I'm planning an award and need advice on whether this itinerary is valid. It won't price online and a UA phone rep told me that it was invalid because you have to take the most direct route  ::). I DROPR, but I'm actually not sure that it's valid.

Crossing both oceans on 1 award can cause pricing issues

Is there a Difference in F or J with UA besides the F service?

Not sure what you're asking, but there is definitely a difference between F and J on a three-class plane, e.g. 777.

In the actual seat or the service and more private? I'm talking about 777 from FRA-NYC

I modified the routing to not cross both oceans. Now they're saying that the problem is not crossing both oceans (rep said explicitly that I could do NYC-TLV/NRT-NYC), but instead that I can't have TLV-NRT together with the rest of the segments because it's a third region and would make it a RTW ticket. The reps I spoke to didn't want to try to manually price it. Progress of a sort, I suppose.

So is LH J on a 747 better then UA F on a 777?
