Was just in New Zealand, during their winter and it's very mild. Plus you can use it to connect to Australia with a warmer winter.
South Island?

Your routing is unclear, it sounds like you have
NYC-VIE-VCE
TLV-WAW-TLV

But that doesn't make sense as the second trip wouldn't qualify as an OJ, can you clarify?

Yes you should be able to get stopover, you should be able to price it out on the united website

Kept on getting errors online, and agent claimed it wasnt valid.
Ended up changing the itinerary and booking NYC-FRA-VCE - stopover - VCE-ZRH-TLV, TLV-VIE-NYC all in J, so ended up working out for the best.

Trying to book VIE-KBP-WAW-HAM-EWR

The KBP-WAW-HAM-EWR is showing as 57.5k UA in J (mixed cabin) If I want to start my trip in VIE its pricing at 105k, 85k, or 72.5k using the multi-city tool depending on how i enter KBP-EWR

Does anyone know what the price should be? Ive called and they dont either know. I was hoping it can be included in the 57.5k because the KBP-EWR routing through WAW-HAM is included in their one-way award and i'm just adding on a segment in the same zone (Europe) I am not yet familiar with the new rules.

First rep couldnt even acknowledge that VIE and KBP are in the same zone.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Anybody try to book and avoid close in fee by changing the flight right after booking, since the Oct 6 changes?  Not anxious to risk the change fee if it no longer works, better off spending the $75 close in fee.

Yes. (That's the whole foundation behind this; free changes and cancellations within 24 hours.)
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
