HOT!!!!! UA glitch
« on: October 12, 2013, 10:35:09 PM »
Just came across this - hope the link to FT is OK.[urlhttp://www.flyertalk.com/forum/united-mileageplus-consolidated/1511565-ua-sfo-hi-80-return-23th-31th-oct.html][/url]

I just booked CVG-LAS and have a confirmation number. I would recommend using a new account with no mileage in it. Not sure this will be honored but let the fun begin!!

Logged in to my milage account, started to book award flight - stopped at the page where insufficient mileage was shown.

 Opened another browser and started to book a paid flight - reached the page where credit card information was required - refreshed the previous award flight page and then refreshed the paid flight page - paid flight page only had the tax displayed $80 - booked the flight.

Has anyone done this?

Final page before confirmation reads:

1 Reward(s)    $100,000.00
Additional Taxes/Fees    $10.00
Total    $10.00

..Seems a bit steep  :(
