The 3:30 pm united ps flights to lax ate lie flat
If they're using sCO international 752s for that then its not PS.  PS on the sUA 752 has no economy minus seating and has business and first class, while the sCO 752 does have economy minus and only has business, not first.

The best bargain is using 50K US to fly in First on the sUA aircraft.

That's an sCO aircraft, so business will be lie-flat.  Most flights are sUA aircraft without lie-flat business.

Yes, but SQ isn't an instant transfer and they have a limited award redemption list, etc.
Still it's worth bearing in mind, yes.

Very interesting - Some flights they could find and some not, even though on UA it was open(not elite or club holder).

I'd much rather a 2 cabin lie flat.  The 3 cabin PS isnt flat.
