I don't see any "hidden links" for finalizing the purchase, but I'll do some digging...
At this point I'd even call UA to see if they can push the ticketing through by playing dumb or offering to complete the payment. Couldn't hurt since the hold technically hasn't been cancelled from ANA's side. Or perhaps you could get creative by having UA change one of their legs (SFO-YVR) and then push the ticketing through.

I booked 4 tickets and so far holding. I'm just feeling bad for the poor Japanese dude and how much this will haunt him and bring shame the airline. I feel these NH tickets would hold as the airline is the "Inspiration of Japan". I'm counting on cultural honor on this one.

The tickets will be honored if you got an eticket number.

What would be interesting is if those successful and updating the Wiki note what booking engine they used.

Agreed. We need an OTA "Wall of Shame" - if I knew better, I could have avoided FlightNetwork.

I mentioned the idea on another travel blog FB page

My wall of shame:
ExploreTrip
FlightNetwork

From what I've read so far about other people who have called ANA, you would have to pay the fare diff if you wanna change, which would be in the few thousand dollars.

BUT let us know if, by a slim chance, you were able to change it for free. I would like to change my dates as well!

United.com is still letting me change my return for just the change fee ($0 fare difference).

I just played around, and I could move SYD-HND//NRT-SFO-YVR one day earlier for $358 USD.

I tried changing my outbound departure with ANA and I could not see availability on dates around my original booking, so I canceled.

Were the flights booked as UA codeshares operated by ANA or ANA marketed?

NH marketed.

I cannot seem to change the outbound without it refaring into P class.

Not that I'm really interested in changing at this point. Just trying to see what I can do.
