They all were under 24 hours. Gave up on this trip, but thanks.

not true anymore. HUCA may not help with the new award rules. Supposedly if you cant make it show in the united tool it wont work.

Oh it shows but depending on how you enter it you get different mileage calculations.

How long does it take for a reward ticket to 'ticket'. I made a domestic reservation 45 minutes ago, and it still has not ticketed yet. Normal?

On UA metal, definitely not normal. Call them, there may be an issue with the flight.

Makes sense it has to do with the new changes, they maybe even manually push things through. You have 24 hours from ticketing, so no worries.

As she was telling me that she can do nothing, as my points are frozen, the ticket got ticketed. (took about 80 minutes)She was more excited than I was. I told her that i would rather do it online (**cough cough**), and it worked as in the past. She even held on the line to make sure i can do it, and opened up some nice seats in row 5 for me! The new flight ticketed instantly.
