1. I dont understand your question.
2. Yes, assuming your ticket is RT
3. Anywhere in Europe or North America but keep in mind UA stopover rules are changing Oct 6th.

So what would be the new rules if I book after Oct 6th? What would I be a able to do?

Tried logging into my UA account last week and got a message to call MileagePlus. Called them and was told that they closed my account back in June and that they couldn't tell me why because it was done by the corporate security team. I asked them why nobody ever called me to tell me that they were closing my account and got a shameless "I don't know." They told me that they emailed the Corporate department on my behalf and that I'll hear from them within 5 days. Obviously, never got a call. Just called back and was told to wait another 5 days.

It almost seems like AA and UA are trying to compete with each other on who can suck more.

You were able to login until last week though?

Did you sell any miles (or book flights for anybody other then yourself)?

Haven't tried logging in since May. When I tried logging in last week, it didn't let me into my account and I just got that message to call.

Never.

Wow, I login to my account several times a day.
4 months without logging in?

You have no idea what you did wrong? Did you get UR points from a non-matching account?

Haha, yup. I didn't have anything to book.

I honestly have no idea. I didn't do anything even remotely shady. The only points that I had in there was from one sign up bonus and then regular spend on my cc.

Has that ever known to be an issue with UA?  I know it is with Ke.

I'm really sorry CS91, how many points did you have?
Good luck

~20k. Not THAT many but still annoying. They said that it'll get re-opened and that I won't lose my points but I'll believe it when I see it. Not sure what bothers me more that they closed my account for no reason and didn't tell me or how incompetent the reps on the phone are to the point that I can't even get helped.

Try doing forgot password and see what happens. UA upgraded their online security and some people are locked out. It may well be that some stupid clueless Indian thinks it's closed.

Was just in New Zealand, during their winter and it's very mild. Plus you can use it to connect to Australia with a warmer winter.
