Same flights are showing up on United (for mileage redemption) and expedia (cash obviously). Anyone know a work around? For now, went ahead and booked ORD to DEL (onward), then MAA to DEL to ORD (return) for 136K miles. HUCA didnt help either.

Thoughts?
I have done the transfer, 3 hours would leave me a little nervous, it can be mayhem !
