I am hoping to get on a United nonstop where now I am on a connection where the first flight is United but the second is a star alliance carier. Thank you.
I asked the exact same question when booking award flight on CO prior to the merger. I was told that any bookings made on CO prior to the merger will be governed by the old CO rules that were in effect on the time of booking. I would not be surprised if new UA will conveniently ignore this and follow UA rules regardless of where and when the initial booking was made.
