Whats the best way to book J using UR on this? CSR 1.5 or a mileage transfer?
Depending on revenue fare vs. mileage availability for the dates you’re looking at.

Is there more saver award space on TK metal through their own FF program than other *A programs?
I'm not seeing any award space on UA.com for the route that I need but seeing plenty on TK.com

I thought it would, as I have been using lifemiles to book TK in J quite a few times, and I always found some flights that sometimes do not show on UA.

Do you all search also with ANA?  I always see lots on there that isn't on UA website.

Does ANA also charge fuel surcharges on United? They charge only 60k RT NYC-TLV in economy.

TK has saver space that sometimes shows only on their own website as well as Asian partners (such as ANA, SQ, etc.) that doesn't show up on European and American partners.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If a flight booked in one ticket is from TLV-SAW, then from IST to JFK, do you have to arrange your own transfer? And do suitcases transfer automatically?
I'm not who you think I am.

you have to arrange your own transfer & you will need a visa, depending which passport you have.

Is it bookable over the phone with UA?
