PUTPAC, but most likely not. You should bring something to eat regardless.

Tried twice, system won't let.
Btw it was only 25 min after the 24 HR "cutoff" time.

Starting off in LON I need to be in TLV starting the begining of April for a few months. Would like to spend 10 days mid August in BKK return to TLV and then eventually get back to LON att some point. What do you recommend as my best options re OJ or stopover. Should I forget the first or last leg and book it separate? Any advantages of using ANA or Singapore for this booking?

Thanx for the help!

I think you are better off posting in this thread as your post has to do with Star Alliance and not only United

Hi!

I am looking to book a massively awesome itinerary for the chagim in sept/oct. It's 120k RT miles to fly from TLV to Australia in J , and of course i'd love to take advantage of the 2 free stopovers.

I used the online multi-city tool to try and look at possibilities but it wigged out having so many cities (The idea is to stop over in Tokyo/Hong kong/South Korea for a 3-4 days on the way to and from Australia). I was able to price out for a booking on a round trip itinerary with 1 stopover (i.e., TLV-TYO-SYD-TLV) but even that was pretty glitchy. How do you people with even crazier itenerariers actually book these massively awesome tickets? Just starting the planning phase, and this will be my first ticket that i'm trying to squeeze every ounce of awesome ness out of all those 120k points. Appreciate any tips!!!!!!!

PS I'm thinking this is what we'd like to do
TLV-TYO 3-4 day stop over
TYO-SYD 1 week
MEL-HKG (open jaw out of melbourne, stopover in Hong Kong for also 3-4 days)
HKG-TLV

open to other ideas to make this even crazier. we got plenty of time to open new cards  for enough hotels 8) 8) 8) 8)

You can call and say you are having issues trying to book it online.

To upgrade an international coach ticket to business saver, will they only take the miles difference or also a change fee?

I'm sure this question was asked before but it a big thread... So sorry if it's a repost.
I'm trying to book a round trip mileage ticket on united.com. Is there a way to add the 1 free stopover online or I have to call up?
TIA

I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.
