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.

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"

Yes. I realized though that the difference when logged in is the additional J standard award.

I recently downgraded my United Mileage Plus card to the no AF card. I know there are a lot of mileage flights available on the united website that only show up if you have the card.

How can i check what mileage flights are available if i don't have the CC?
