FYI, I booked a ticket this week and dumped the close in fee using a lesser known method. The flight was ticketed and flown already and I got an email from United saying they couldn't process the ressy and I needed to call in to pay the fee in order to get it processed. The email was sent by a human so don't use this method if you don't want human eyes on your ticket.

Don't PM me asking the method please.
Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

If I'm booking a J class roundtrip to Europe, is the free add on leg to Hawaii also in J ?

Can this be done a OW as well?

Are there any other miles that are worth using for UA flights to Europe in J or F?

I.E. Lufthansa or Singapore or any others, and will they charge YQ and what range

Fast forward: I tried reaching out to UA, got nowhere, other than refund the miles & fees. I contacted the DOT in July. Less than 30 days later, received from UA "Although we’re unable to honor your request for full compensation, we will be sending each of you a $1000.00 United electronic travel certificate as a gesture of goodwill and to help make amends."

Thanks for the follow-up.

Why bother with an untested method when the general works so well?
It's been working for years, so definitely not untested. I used it to dump the fee on a tricked out itinerary that wouldnt've worked using the other method.
