That has nothing to do with the new site, even the old site didn't use different colors for that.
Are you joking?
@D93 I hope you are joking....that has been my biggest annoyance so far....its impossible to tell which dates actually have savor non stop available without actually clicking on each one
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

Huh? The old site showed DIFFERENT COLORS in the calendar for direct and non-direct flights?
Of course!

Misunderstanding here. I thought you said the old calendar showed DIFFERENT COLORS for direct and non-direct, which it did NOT, now I realize you were referring to the ability to have the calendar only display direct flights unlike the new site that can not.

No it did not, it was the same COLORS, except it had the ability to have it display only direct flights.

Doesn't it still have the ability to show only direct flight?

I know some other airlines don't allow this but is there any way to get United to combine two separate bookings (1 award booking from my UA account and 1 award booking from DW's) onto one PNR? Gonna do a Plan B and want to avoid the situation where one of us gets upgraded and one of us gets stuck in Y (most likely me).

Even on 1 PNR, you can still run into the situation of 1 clearing and 1 not clearing.

No way to actually merge 2 PNRs.

Cross referencing wont actually merge them.

Took several HUCAs but got an itinerary booked with 2 stopovers+destination and split apart a married segment to boot.
Good times.
