It was working this afternoon (PT), but hasn't gotten the United feed for the past few hours. Bummer as I'm flying tomorrow afternoon, and had seat alerts set for earlier flights in the hope of...

I flew SFO-EZE 7 times last year, mostly via EWR, and the increasingly favorable exchange rate was indeed attractive, although hotel pricing is typically in USD so kept pace with inflation. While I...

I've only sat in PE, but last week checked out the bulkhead, which seemed to have very generous legroom. Certainly more than the rest of E+ -- people were sitting comfortably with legs extended. I'd...

That's fantastic news! As recently as last week I had to call to make a next-day change. Now I wonder if the limits were a glitch all along, or a trial balloon for a policy change? Either way, I'm...

3 trips >$250 for 4200 mi. I'll probably hit it without trying, but really?! With devaluation, this and the prior one (something like 2.5k miles) are more irritating than incentivizing.

So am I :D.
I've bid more often of late, when I fly SFO-EWR-SFO on weekends when my schedule is flexible. There are so many daily flights that the re-booking is typically just a few hours later. But...

Yes, sorry I wasn't clear. I checked with the GA before boarding began. She said the flight was oversold so she would likely need my seat, after confirming my bid amount and that a flight a few hours...

My sense is that *IF* the GA follows protocol, low bid gets first dibs. But if more than one volunteer is needed, everyone get the amount of the final acceptance. I recently bid low at $400 (options...

Yes, I tried that workaround, and was able to SDC to the next day. The change processed with a $0 fee, but at the final screen I got both confirmation and a message to call customer service prior to...

Thank you both for useful info!

jsloan, now I'm curious how it works for refunds if you don't mind elaborating? (for educational purposes - I'm going ahead and changing this one)

Question re: change fee. I bought a RT T class ticket. I was at the airport today, feeling ill, so offered to VDB on an oversold flight rather than fly with a GI bug. At the last minute my seat...

Yes, on the same route. I checked EF and found options (not negated by routing restrictions) that weren't available via UA app or website. Also, as you and others have noted, there were no options...

Hah - on one hand you're right. I caved and bought another monthly subscription, and on my first flight last week, it didn't work - there was wifi, and my subscription showed as active, but I kept...

No, the IFE screen is stored below the armrest, so unreleased takes up no legroom at all. The tray table is also stored in the armrest, and can unfold to full or half-width. It has a neat little...

The 773 PP bulkhead is fantastic, far better imo than the 772 or 781. Miles of legroom. See attached photo. I'd just avoid middle seats in the 4-across section - if those were the only bulkhead...

I agree with sb3, if you lower your expectations. My disappointment was with the PP 781 bulkhead vs the 773. (As an aside, the 772 bulkhead is similarly underwhelming.) As you can see in my photos,...

On my flight the curtain remained open, which is why I asked the FA which cabin the lavs were meant for. She gave the green light, which I appreciated as I was sitting in the PP bulkhead. A number of...

I found the 781 bulkhead seats cramped compared to the 773's, which have miles of legroom. Not terrible, but disappointing. I was sitting in 20B, and took the attached photos of the center bulkhead...

Thanks, that's a useful distinction. In this case, I first checked with the GA, who confirmed my bid. Soon after she asked for additional volunteers, which seemed auspicious. I was a little nervous...

I'm Platinum, and am somewhere in the middle of those 90+ potential upgraders. A $199 buy up sounds really good right about now.
As data point, I called the premiere desk and was told waiver changes...

Ya, that's the general idea :D My OLCI VDB options were all for Friday morning. I live a pretty short drive from SFO (at least late at night when there's no traffic...) so it would be easy to hop...

I was in 19A and got shifted to 20B when my 777-300ER got Polarized. I'm Plat, so doubt it was status related, but based on other reports, it's kind of a crapshoot at this point.
