I'm sure people here could have used it.  ;)

I'm sure too. But there was only one member on DDF who actually took some, and I didn't do it for money. I did it for the help he gave me in what I needed at the time and a good relationship. DDF to me is not just about buying, it's about helping each other. I've asked over 10-15 questions on DDF related to UA, and am shocked that on such a savvy community only 2 ever came forward. One already got GPU's from me, and the other will also (as year ends and I see I have no use...)

Can you change the FFN of a UA ticket booked for the MP account holder to a different *A FFN (to get *G benefits)?
dan posted this a while ago but it still works
Here's a great one from BAHayman. Makes the FFN field editable on a UA reservation after clicking on edit traveler info.

Code: [Select]
javascript:(function () { jQuery('#ctl00_ContentInfo_spanFreqFlyer').replaceWith('<table><tbody><tr><td style="vertical-align:bottom" colspan="2"></td></tr><tr style="vertical-align:bottom"><td style="padding-right:1em"><label><span id="ctl00_ContentInfo_FrequentFlyer_RewardProgType_lblField" class="Content">Program:</span><br></label><select name="ctl00$ContentInfo$FrequentFlyer$RewardProgType$cboRewardProg" id="ctl00_ContentInfo_FrequentFlyer_RewardProgType_cboRewardProg" class="Content"><option value="5">Select program</option><option value="7">United MileagePlus</option><option value="118">Adria Miles&amp;More</option><option value="113">Aegean Miles &amp; Bonus</option><option value="120">Aer Lingus Gold Circle</option><option value="8">Air Canada Aeroplan</option><option value="9">Air China Phoenix Miles</option><option value="103">Air New Zealand Airpoints</option><option value="94">Amtrak Guest Rewards</option><option value="29">ANA Mileage Club</option><option value="104">Asiana Club</option><option value="105">Austrian Miles &amp; More</option><option value="115">Avianca LifeMiles</option><option value="133">Azul Linhas A%C3%A9reas Tudo Azul</option><option value="123">Brussels Miles &amp; More</option><option value="117">COPA MileagePlus</option><option value="124">Croatia Miles &amp; More</option><option value="106">EgyptAir Plus</option><option value="130">Ethiopian ShebaMiles</option><option value="3">EVA Infinity MileageLands</option><option value="129">JetPrivilege</option><option value="107">LOT Polish Airlines Miles &amp; More</option><option value="26">Lufthansa Miles&amp;More</option><option value="33">SAS EuroBonus</option><option value="131">Shenzhen Phoenix Miles</option><option value="109">Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer</option><option value="110">South African Airways Voyager</option><option value="126">SWISS Miles &amp; More</option><option value="127">TACA LifeMiles</option><option value="34">TAP Victoria</option><option value="35">THAI Royal Orchid Plus</option><option value="111">Turkish Airlines Miles &amp; Smiles</option><option value="134">Air India Flying Returns</option></select></td><td><label><span id="ctl00_ContentInfo_FrequentFlyer_RewardProgNumber_lblField" class="Content">Account Number:</span><br><input name="ctl00$ContentInfo$FrequentFlyer$RewardProgNumber$txtRewardNum" type="text" maxlength="20" size="20" id="ctl00_ContentInfo_FrequentFlyer_RewardProgNumber_txtRewardNum"></label></td></tr></tbody></table>'); })();

Im reading online that if i book a basic economy ticket and include my star alliance gold number i will still be able to bring a carry on, free checked bag and receive my priority boarding.. Does anyone know if the other people on my itinerary with basic economy will also receive benefits?
thanks!

Started seeing different awards showing how many seats left in that fare bucket without having to look at expert mode.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

I guess they're really starting to treat it like cash these days.

"Only 4 seats left at this price!".

What  are the cancellation  rules  with an awards ticket after 24 hrs? Can it be canceled? Is there a fine? How much....?

I'm getting a little confused with the Excursionist Perk. I've used it successfully before but this if the first time I'm trying to use it for South America. I'm looking at
SEA - CUZ, CUZ - LIM, LIM - SEA. The CUZ - LIM isn't showing up as 0 points, instead biz class is 20k pts.
Anything I'm doing wrong or that I'm missing? TIA!
