Interesting, dan specificaly mentiones that with the united card you access to the expended saver awards space and you can then book a ticket in business class (JN) for 75,000 miles. See here right before the comments section.

As I mentioned earlier, Dan is talking about Economy. XN not JN.

Having the United Explorer card gives you access to XN which is expanded Economy awards at the saver level price, it also gives you access to JN which is last seat availability in Business class but not at the saver level price, which in this case it would be 180k.

Thanks.

So just to confirm that I understood correctly. There is four levels of award space
1. Standard award bucket (HN,ZN) - every mile member.
2. Expanded standard award bucket (JN,YN) - card holders and Plat/1K/GS elites.
3. Saver award bucket (I,X) - every mile member .
4. Expanded saver award bucket (IN,XN) - Plat/1K/GS elites but not card holders.

If so what's the difference between standard award and saver award they both seem to be open to all miles members.

Also whats between the expanded saver vs regular saver.

Last, it seems that card members do get access to Expanded saver award bucket as they have access to XN.

Thanks

P.S. you can see the attached screenshot from where I'm taking these four award levels.

I created a simple table for the Noobs our there (like me) that are trying to grasp the united award classes and who has access to those classes.

|Standard|Expanded standard|Saver|Expanded saver









Coach|HN = Everyone
|YN = Elite / Card members
|X = Everyone
|XN = Elite / Card members









Business|ZN = Everyone
|JN = Elite / Card members
|I = |IN =

If you would read my post you would see it's not meant for Dan. It's meant for people that are new to this whole concept of award tickets and they want an easily readable chart of what awards classes they should be able to see, I created it for myself because I kept on getting confused when I was looking at Dan's list of buckets and figured someone else might enjoy it.

Not everyone has bad intention when they post something, and yes some people actually do run a search and do read through posts before asking and posting, please understand everyone's mind is wired differently and something that might look simple for you might look complicated for others and vice versa.

Donít know if this is rare, but Iím seeing DL 468 on 8/19 for 72k FB. Itís 415k on DL
Assuming it's not phantom, good find.
DL seems to becoming more like UA with Saver on this route, it's there, but very rarely. As apposed to before where it just never existed.

Not for me
Select "Flexible dates" and select that date from the calendar (even if it shows starting from 150k...).
ETA: Seems like its actually gone now.
