Does it make sense that UA would show J, and Y for a specific flight, but when I try to add that leg into a multi city, I only get Y ?
Probably married segments.

Question : I know that if I book an award flight for my brother w/ my points, he won't get a free luggage even if I use my united card. But what if I buy the book the award flight w/ my points but pay the tax w/ my Bros united card. Will he get a luggage b/c he used HIS united card?
Probably. PUTPAC

So I would have to book it separate and then get UA to add it in afterwards ?

You're trying to book a mixed cabin award with the multi city search? UA.com isn't good at being able to do that.

Yes, that's what I'm trying to do. Any ideas ?

UA J to LHR is usually pretty open. They've really tightened up recently but I wouldn't expect that to last.
Unbelievable no availability in J anymore!!!

Ive seen AA release more seats lately in J for JFK-LHR.... Not sure why United is being so stingy on awards to LHR lately.. Plenty of seats a day on this route between all carriers.. Enough for everyone

If I cancel a united award on, a partner airline, is there a possibility that the award space won't go back into inventory ?

Does having the UA cc give you access to IN or just to XN ?
Expert mode showing me IN1 but when I search nothing comes up.

Only XN. IN is for elites.
