How come when checking united flight status by upgrades, it shoes like 2 people already upgraded with a check on the side for a flight which is in like 36 hours from now. Isn't this list for the battlefield?

It's for CPU/RPU/GPU as well.

not Ime.

In fact, whenever I get GPUs cleared even on day of departure by reservations it never showed up on list.

Am I missing anything?

I hear. Guess I'll have to chk it out again.

When being wait listed for a CPU with a companion obviously it will only clear is 2 seats become available for upgrade. If I split the PNR will the companion still stay wait listed or he will lose the companion status?

I apologize if this is the wrong thread, I am trying to follow Dan's advice to search for things on DDF, information regarding close-in fees on United mileage bookings. Ive searched with various keywords and have not found the info I am looking for. Can someone at least give me the keywords I should search for and then Ill do the rest myself? TIA

Looking at united awards flight from TPE to SEA on Nov 27th, and see a $32.66 fee (along with 35K miles) for a direct flight on EVA.  Why is this not $5.60?  I looked through the united awards fee page and I can't figure it out. I didn't log into the united site.

Oh, one more question...United Business class redemption still maps to EVA first class, right?

Thanks!

Know this is not the right thread....but would go for a quick one....


If i call up United after (24 hours of booking) to change an Award for same day just with different airline  within 24 hours of departure , besides paying a  change fee, would I also pay anything extra being it's within 24 hours of The flight?

The UA 24 hour policy says it applies

if you made your purchase one week or more prior to the original scheduled departure flight.
I should still be able to change a flight that was originally booked more than a week out to a date within a week, right?

I've had an issue with 3 award bookings in the last couple of days, they aren't ticketing for more than 12 hours. It usually takes < 5 minutes. Is this normal?

Noticed some small changes on United.com like the accompanied screenshot where it specifically lists which flights are expanded availability.

Is there an additional fee if you change a flight within 24 hours of the flight?
If there is, does that apply when the change is also within 24 hours of being booked? (iow, when the change is free)

I don't believe that's accurate. I did a search without logging in and then when I logged in the same results were "Exclusively available to you as a Chase cardmember"
