Too crazy they should honor it!!
Sounds like it never really was.
No one on FT or DD has reported getting a ticket number.
Except for the OP on FT

I'm now waiting for someone to report he got a charge from UA of $320,000.

What happens if the issue a ticket an charge the card after 24 hours of getting the PNR? Does the law still require them to allow cancellations?

It's 24 hours from eticketing.
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.

the reason they are not ticketing is because "there are insufficient miles in the account" the first few people were lucky, the rest of us aren't getting our tickets ticketed. - without adding the miles in that is..
the system now will not issue the ticket until there are sufficient miles in the account. please correct me if i'm wrong.

I once had this where I was able to book tickets with insufficient amount of mile sin my account. To my understanding what is happening is the airline is holding a reservation for you and if you can come up with the sufficient amount of miles for the award selected then they will ticket you and if not then it gets canceled.

This guy made a big mistake. This was not a one time flaw. But a major programming error. If he used it himself and never told anyone about it, there is a good chance he could have flown for free for a long time

Is using pay pal a better choice in this matter or the opposite?

Free 24 hrs cancellation.
And it's from when the e-tik is issued (unlikely in this case), according to what someone wrote elsewhere in the thread.
