With the printed ticket, Delta was able to call United, and have them sign over the ticket to Delta. I got the miles I was supposed to have gotten by taking the flight.

There is no way you can be denied boarding if you have a confirmed seat in first class. Good luck!
There most certainly is a way. I've experienced it!

Both flights were very uneventful and went smoothly.

It looks like I will be flying LAX to ITO maybe once or twice a year due to family matters. I do like the non-stop flight, but I might want to try Hawaiian (LAX to HNL to ITO) next time if their fare is competitive with United just to see the difference in airlines.

Overall, very pleased and a big thanks to all you veteran fliers for your advice and opinions.
Thanks for coming back and updating! ^

Glad the flights were uneventful, and hope your future travels are as well.

(Side note: I'm EXTREMELY envious of your net jet experiences. That's on my bucket list...)
