The upgrade award chart link in the wiki no longer works :( UA has removed it, apparently.

They simply don't want to invest in their IT.
If they wanted to have things like showing upgrade space on their website, among others, they would've done them. It's not hard.

According to the wiki of this thread, there's no award redeposit fee "for flights changed or cancelled more than 30 days before departure".

My offer (old club card) is 2400 miles after $12,500 spend
So this brings it to a whopping 1.692 miles per $, compared to the normal 1.5.

Two things I love about NW:

Their last livery, introduced in 2003. I find it stunningly beautiful.
DTW's McNamara Terminal, which gives quite a futuristic look.

Well that's why 1Ks tend to get much worse offers. :p
The purpose of the offers is to incentivize those who want/need to travel, but are undecided whether to fly UA or other airlines, to fly UA. If...

UA no longer allows assembling segments, so itís not like EF or any other tools can help you find a better routing anyway.

IMO the no-residual-value thing is fair game. UA collects so much change fee, that I don't think they can just eliminate it forever, with no strings attached (maybe during the pandemic, but...

If I'm currently booked on EWR-PVG in August, I'd want UA to keep it on the schedule if there's the smallest glimmer of hope that it will actually fly.
If UA takes it off the schedule and cancels my...

There are people booked on non-Wed/Sat UA857 as well as UA86 (EWR-PVG) whose reservations were recently cancelled.
I'd be surprised if UA opens up any seats on Wed/Sat UA857 to new bookings (even...

True. DL and UA did not need to add a stopover to any other long haul destination, so it is China who is being overly draconian.

It is so that the crew don't need to stay in Shanghai.
If what DL does is an indication, passengers won't get off the plane at ICN. And SFO-ICN and ICN-PVG won't be sold separately.

I highly doubt it. Flights to China are in extreme high demand.
The earliest availability I find on UA (Wed/Sat UA857) is late September, and on DL is October.

Yeah, great news.

DL will be flying SEA-ICN-PVG, so I'd imagine UA would fly SFO-NRT-PVG. Since it is only 2 flights per week, I don't know how crew scheduling would work if UA were to fly SFO-PVG...

Once again it seems like United doesn't make any customer friendly move until Delta does.

Yes, US-FRA-PVG, US-ZRH-PVG, US-VIE-PVG etc. are all fine as long as both flights are operated by the same airline.

More than one flight per week, no. One flight per week, I don't see why not. Seems very possible.

If this is true, all airlines flying to China (except perhaps a few Chinese carriers) are making "fake flights".
