Is it me or did domestic UA business saver award space go non existent over the weekend? There were a few flights LAX-EWR for jun/jul 2017 that I was tracking, getting ready to book. Checked last night, gone. Checked in expert mode to see if they are available for cardholders, also non existent. Checked a few other routes, almost nothing for that time. Anybody know of anything that happened?

On hold with united for half an hour. The phone line mentioned something about severe weather. What's going on?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Over the weekend they always change availability, it will probably become available again after  the weekend.

how long is considered unusual for a UA award flight on multiple star alliance partners to ticket?
I've been waiting all day

Let's just say I had a very nervous past couple of weeks since they came up on my account:



Came up after a redeposit. (Yes, I do a lot of those. Maybe I should slow those down...) Apparently the system is now manually auditing redeposits and there's nobody to speak to that can clear it up.
Needs to be reviewed by senior MP and the process takes 2-3 weeks.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Maybe us plebeians without status will now see more saver avail as Top Tiers wont be booking everything with option to redeposit freely :)

Yes
Depends on how you'd define rare
