Anyone else having problem finding LOT availability revenue or award on United? Trying to find LO27 on 10/6. ITA and Google Flights both have it. When I try to book revenue through Google Flights it send me to the old United site. If I try to change anything it send me to new site with no flight info.

I did too, but THAT specific flight does not show up, even for revenue. And there are many seats available per LOT website. And United is now back to its old site again. There must be something going on.

I am trying to book OGG-EWR with a connection in SFO/LAX in business but it looks like they blocked all saver award availability from October-December. Anyone have advice on when they may release saver awards on these routes? It was showing plenty of options a month ago but now over the last few weeks nothing.

I want to blame Jeff S. for this along with many other items but I think Oscar M. may have a hand in this as well....;p

Why is this pricing out for me at 80k instead of 70k? Doesn't defining whether it's the United or partner rate go by the longer flight? (I seem to recall this was discussed here recently, but couldn't find it).

Partner business short haul in same region=UA pricing.
Partner coach to 3rd region=UA pricing.

I have an award flight for later today and I want to switch to an earlier flight, which is free only for Premier Platinum and
Premier 1K members. Can I get someone else with that status to change my ticket on their own account with my conf. number?

Huh ?! The reservation was made under your account, how does someone else change a ressy, when it's not under their account ?
