When flying with a spouse are the straight seats best like 15 and 17 on 777-300ER or is an angled seat better? Itís going to be my first time in United Polaris business. Thank you Dan for the plan B.

Does the current UA cancellation policy apply to new award tickets booked? Meaning, will I need to pay a redeposit fee? I know that previously booked flights do incur it even when booked for April.

For UA you only mention changes not cancellations. I see several sources saying that new tickets booked can also be cancelled for free:

My question was if this also applies to award tickets.
