I just noticed on the new united website with the miles fluctuating based on demand to fly lga-ord with miles they only charge 6.5k thas even cheeper then avios!

Im sorry guys, my mistake. That price came out only when I did multi destination. Under old united it charged me 12.5 for each leg (didn't try calling united to book) but under the new united it charged 6.3k to lga-ord then another 6.3 from ord-lax.

When does UA tend to open J class availability from EWR-LHR? I looked for the next 3 months and I don't see anything.

Been wondering the same thing. Economy is wide open.

UA J to LHR is usually pretty open. They've really tightened up recently but I wouldn't expect that to last.

Hope so, I know it used to be wide open but decided to check last night and couldn't find one flight in J near or far out!

Trying to book my friend a trip to Switzerland, Italy and Israel next winter... He has 700K UR but doesn't want to use more than like 250K on flights... I'm thinking to try to nab SQ R JFK-FRA and the rest with one giant fun United award... does that make sense? Any ideas?

IDK, I've read about United's really loose routing rules, figured could make something happen like ZRH-MXP, FCO-TLV, TLV-EWR

Is expanded availability with the UA card, only for UA flights itself, or does it open more availability for partner awards too ?
