I recently shared the story of united flight 232
I found out some 50 kosher keeping passengers, including kids, were on the flight and figured they would be stuck in Cleveland for a while. I only did what I’d love if it was done for me in that situation, I bought a few cases of food from Trader Joe’s as they were closing and drove to the airport with Dr. Shmulie Margolin, who had also gathered together food thanks to Ohio Kosher.

Notice how I was charged the full 60,000 miles, the business class rate. However my fare class is Economy. The letter code for a coach saver award is either X or XN. X refers to saver coach award space for general members. XN is expanded saver coach award space for logged-in elites and people who have the Chase United Explorer credit card.
