No
Would any other card have covered this?

So what does Explorer's insurance cover?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I changed a award ticked and the agent said it will be $50 but they actually charged me $100 which I believe is the correct amount. Am I wasting my time to try to get them to honor the $50? Thanks

IME it go's off the FFN # linked to the reservation. At least thats what the desk agents said. You can give them ur FFN # and they see if a CC is linked to it/eligible for a checked bag
So is this true or not?
I just booked for my mom (who since card benefits no longer go to anyone booked on account has her own card) but paid with mine. Can I change it to hers- or is that not recomended?

Just found United flight for 42,500 points to israel. Is that good or bad? How much are united points worth? If I book now, I assume I have 24 hours to cancel and I get points and fee back?
