There's no award saver business ticket between LAX>JFK

I have been looking for business award ticket between LAX>JFK or NWR, but i couldn't find it at aeroplan/United. Star alliant ever release business award ticket for this routes?

UA does not serve JFK.

"Star Alliance" does not release award space on any route; the operating carrier does that.

If UA is not making Saver Business space available on its LAX-EWR nonstops, look for such space on connecting flights, into either EWR or LGA.

United is the only domestic US Star Alliance carrier and the airline no longer flies from JFK. You either need to fly to LGA with a connection (DEN, ORD, IAH) or take a nonstop to EWR. The First Saver awards are very scarce on the nonstop PS routes I saw only one for January 2020 on the UA website......

I'm seeing UA F Saver awards from LAX to EWR available on June 18 and June 29; one connection is required in each case.

UA basically does not release business saver awards for the nonstop LAX-EWR (nor SFO-EWR).

I found one non stop first saver for all of January 2020 and it is likely gone now.... but January is pretty quiet and horrible in NYCó I never even bother to look on First PS routes for saver awards...

Yeah, I qualified with "basically" because you might see a day or two with availability in a twelve month period. Been this way for years now.

Nearly impossible to upgrade as well (though I scored one in February).

If you can find discounted nonstop P fares at $659, get them pronto.

Looking for nonstop awards in J between LAX and EWR are like looking for unicorn.
