He's here longer than you.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Look at this. Everyone who responded should also look at this and learn a lesson.

So what you mean to say is

saver awards are capacity controlled -- you can't get seats on all flights at all times. They are, however, the only way to get an award on non-UA airlines. Standard awards cost twice (or more) the number of miles, but they are good basically on any UA flight as long as there is space. You can't get awards on UA's partner airlines, though, using standard awards. There are other differences as well, but this is the basic distinction.
I'm not who you think I am.

I mean to say:

"Welcome to FT!

You've really got two questions here, saver vs. standard and UA vs. NWA.

I can't speak to the latter. About the former, saver awards are capacity controlled -- you can't get seats on all flights at all times. They are, however, the only way to get an award on non-UA airlines. Standard awards cost twice (or more) the number of miles, but they are good basically on any UA flight as long as there is space.

"SaverPass" is what a Saver Award used to be called, before Smisek and Co. came along and $@#ed up a perfectly good frequent flyer program, which was formerly known as Continental OnePass.
