What does United First/Business on a 737-700 IAD-LAX have to offer? Anything worth booking double points?

Personally, I would rather take an exit seat in economy over that First Class...

Does it make sense that a one way non-stop ticket with united using United miles is 85,000 miles and with a stopover is 42,500??? I got 47,000 miles trying to book a one way jfk--->tlv

Are you sure it's not quoting just the first leg of the trip? Or is this the total after both flights are selected?

85k = standard award. 42k = saver award.

You can only use united miles thru united even if it's on another partner airline.

I booked 2 seats on a flight and there are no regular seats left. Only extra leg room. Wat happens? Any way i can get 2 seats together?

Be early at the airport.

Depending on how far out the flight is, I've had success with seats opening up, so keep checking back.

And if that fails:
Be early at the airport.
