Perhaps an insider can answer this question, but honestly I would believe United would not be well-served by letting agents provide you with that kind of an override.

I see. That's a good point.

I guess the only way to know if you are more likely to get a Polaris plane is to check if United is trying to sell PE on that route. Or is there a list somewhere? I...
