+1000

So frustrating. Makes it hardly appealing to fly using miles. Revenue is usually better.

Take your whole family SFO-AKL in UA J on the 787-9

http://thepointsguy.com/2016/07/united-award-availability-to-new-zealand/

It looks like the 787 SFO-AKL service they announced disappears from Nov-March where it's now flown on 777. Any ideas?

Booking economy has nothing to do with the 787.  ::)

does Delta's refusal to release any space on the jfk-tlv route to partners, qualify for a DOT complaint?
