Actually it was in reference to switching from UA metal to AC metal!

I've had the experience once with UA where they called LH to open a seat for me. In that scenario I got a UA rep to book me as waitlisted and then called back and got UA to actually book it.

This was great for tickets booked until June 19th. New tickets are now $75 change fees for non-elites!

I am looking to book an award ticket from DTW to LGA on Aug 25 and returning Aug 26. I have UR, MR and Delta points. I want to leave early in the morning and return in the evening on the 26th. What are the best points to use. The only real availability I see are Delta for 32,500 points. Is there a better option to transfer the UR or MR points?

Left side is my wife's United account, and right side is my account.
Is there any reason Saver Award is not available in my account for 11:29 AM?

Dan likes to save words and be cryptic, so I will explain it as I have a Q10 and typing is a breeze ;-). Elites and Chase UA Club Card members (maybe explorers, not sure) have access to award inventory not available to others. That class is listed as XN (X is regular award economy). XN is available to elites and club members only. Now, is the account showing availability an elite or club card member?

Excellent, I always wanted a meturgeman.

Pretty good, but XN is also for explorer cardholders as well.

    Elites get access to ‘XN’, ‘IN’, and ‘ON’ to the extent those will ever be greater than the standard X, I, and O.
Dan i thought you see the WHOLE picture.
Didn't you see the 2.5$ in my account (UC) as opposite to 77.5$ in my wife's account ( UMPE )?
But still there is more availability in my wife's account!

Didn't open your picture, just took a guess.
I'd try in another browser.
