I'm having a hard time trying to find out how much points is required if when booking Y and upgrd to P/Z etc. when i search UA advanced search and choose MUA as upgrd type and entering Y as fare class, the results bump back to low class ( K, T ..) + miles required but it wont show me Y + miles needed.

Anyone ?

Can someone explain this?

Every airline prices out in the same range, but UA is $400ish more. And it's not just for these dates, its for the whole schedule, what is going on?

Family member is flying United tomorrow morning. Was booked basic economy. Is there anyway to upgrade to business? It doesn't allow them to upgrade online, presumably because it was booked in Basic economy. Is it possible to buy up to regular economy and then upgrade?

United refused to help cancel a flight within my 24 hour window - rebook
« Reply #448 on: June 30, 2021, 08:13:29 PM »
Hello,

Maybe you can help. I had a 150 dollar non-refundable ticket, that I had because of a flight I CANCELED, no covid issue here. Well, like an IDIOT, I used this small ticket to book a much larger ticket today, and then I wanted to cancel it today, less than 4 hours later, and I was told NO. Why? Because unwittingly to me, I had taken this small landmine of a ticket and created a MUCH larger landmine of a ticket! I am 1K and they did not care. I sent an email to 1Kvoice, and I called twice, HUCA, and the supervisor told me tough luck this is our policy. A policy that is HORRIBLE! One no one told me about when booking this over the phone to the 1k desk.

Any other ideas? I really do not need this larger ticket hanging around my neck - but if I have to, I guess I will live with it.

Thanks!

I used United farelock to hold a ticket on United.

Is it possible to use travel bank to book that farelock ticket as I don't see any options for that in the payment ?

Anyone well versed in united who can explain how the instant upgrades for elites when booking on the highest paid fare class (y or b)
Does it work for any elite even silver?
Does go to the next cabin (i.e econ to premium plus on 787) or always to business?
Is it an automatic process or do you need to call?
Sorry I don't have any snarky line for this space

I took a look at the FAQ on the UA website for you, looks like the answer is no:
