United TLV to EWR flight - middle row economy plus vs aisle exit row?
Last seat in aisle vs middle Economy plus IMO...

Probably a personal preference question....Do you care to step over people getting out?
Def is. I don't mind stepping over people. More concerned sitting next to someone who doesn't try to stay in his personal space. I rarely sit in the middle but I can't remember how economy plus is.

Not sure if this is the right thread. I would like to book tickets for a flight on Friday morning using either delta certificates or CSR points. would any of those options allow me to cancel within 24 hours of booking even though it will be within 24 hours of the flight?

Is United Polaris (EWR -> LAX/SFO) considered first or biz on the SQ award chart? ie would it be 20k or 30k miles one way?
Thanks!

looking to book direct flights from YYZ to MIA or FLL. However, on the United website, direct flights on Air Canada are not showing up as a mileage option. What other points program can I use to book these flights?

AC = Air Canada / Aeroplan. Make an account with them and check for space. They often have their own award inventory that they donít release to partners.
