Have a Simple Question About United Airlines/MileagePlus? Ask Here [2019]

I need to book a Lufthansa Premium Economy flight in united.com. The fare bucket is shown by united.com is R, what is the actual bucket in LH? LH Does not have R for PE, they only have E, G and N. Thanks

Just booked my return flight for a day trip tomorrow and the normal A319 late evening flight seatmap IAH-PHL shows 3 rows of F instead of 2, which I have, of course, never seen. Is this for a possible 320 sub? I booked row 2 but still found the seatmap odd. Is there a reconfig I missed? Just curious

It was upgauged to a 320 - there are some places where the equipment type doesn't update in the systems when swapped last minute.

So I qualified back into my lowly gold last year (2018), reaching the status in early December. This is quite useful for *G and the economy plus availability.

Checking my UA app today, it's saying valid through January 2019. My understanding was if I qualify in 2018, it's valid through end 2019. Should I be worried here?

No, no worries.

Actually status will be valid to end of January 2020.

Flying tonight lax-Ewr. Upgraded using gpu. BP shows upgraded seat (2b) but still shows as economy. Might I end up in the back?

TP flights not showing up for Mileageplus bookings

Is anyone else having problems getting TAP flights to show up for UA Award bookings? It was working fine in recent weeks, but now I can't pull up anything for TAP for Award bookings.

UA said there’s a known problem ticketing TP. Maybe they’ve now just hidden them until they fix whatever it is.

Hi all - is there a thread dedicated to helping people find good routes to use their RPUs/GPUs last minute before 31 Jan 2019 expiration?

If you requalified for 1K for 2019, you can ask to extend 2 GPUs until April 30, 2019.
