Spend $50k on your UAMPE.
I think you're dreaming, move on.

Why $50k?

He said he wants back 60k, so in order to get 60k he has to spend 50k on his UAMPE card.
If you don't get the math, I'm afraid you'll have to go back to seminar.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Wow!
My ticket from NYC to LAX was canceled!
Again my original ticket was TLV to LAX with a stop in NYC, an award ticket.
A few weeks ago I want from TLV to NYC and today I should have used the NYC to LAX portion of the ticket. However, United canceled it saying no open jaw tickets on a one way!

IIUC, he was referring to the 25k. But whatever...

IMHO once its ticketed they have an obligation to honor it unfer the DOT laws. You should file a complaint with the DOT

in your op you write that you see it cancelled from the beginning
I made an award ticket TLV to NYC and then (a free additional leg to) LAX. United rep offered me to refund the NYC to LAX portion of the miles. Can I believe her? While I see already online that the ticket is canceled can I trust her that I will get back the miles?  She is not sending me any confirmation email.

Thanks you,  I did a few HUCA's and they said this time only, as a courtesy, the supervisor have special permission, so she reinstated the ticket.

Worked! Got to LAX free on United First!

Now would you do this again on the way back?

Would you book a one way, UA business ticket, LAX to TLV with a stopover in NYC?
No I won’t try again to cancel it but the NYC stop over would be more than a day but less than 12 months?
Appreciate everybody’s input.
