It is tempting, but I have several issues with OZ. Their web site is utter junk, I've had problems with adv. seat assignments, and I hate Korean food (though I haven't tried doing special meal). ...

I had the long layover several times. The lounges are great, but I usually opted for the hotel & shuttle OZ provided in Incheon to catch a few zzzs. (At least they did a few years ago; I expect it...

Thanks!

I had booked LAX-FRA as a MR, then found this post. I got LAX-IST for $100 less than FRA (though FRA, no less) with 3k more miles.

Question advice on whether to continue 1K

I have been 1k for perhaps 10 years now, but I'm about 30k short this year. In the past I might have gone for an LAX-SIN trip, but that won't even do it. My big issue is my opinion that 1k isn't...

Int'l isn't an issue, but changing terminals could be. I would guess you'll be OK, but others more familiar with IAD would know better.

Chase cards

good work!

Ouch. colonius! I thought I had it tough with 33k in Sep and 43k in Nov. The only upgrades I got were my ZRH MR; most of the rest was OZ coach on their rock hard seats and full flights. At least I...

day hotel

Make sure to arrange the hotel beforehand. Last month I was told the hotel was full and since I didn't have a "reservation" for it from OZ, out of luck. Flying to the Philippines sure is a pain on...

I'd fly LAX-ZRH-LHR on Swiss award in 1st class if you can get it. UA's C and F really stink compared to Swiss (I just did both). If you need the miles to keep making 1k then buy the ticket.

You need to call UA frequently and completely ignore ua.com. Often new seats appear on the 1st of the month, also. ANA tool is a good start, but many (most?) times it has seats which UA doesn't.

This has been standard for some time. The imm./customs closes from T6 (UA) in the early afternoon so the later flights all need to go to Bradley terminal. Most flights (Asia) arrive in the morning...
