I left off previously last month when we were leaving the Newark Presidents Club in middle of a flying across the country earning miles worth more than the cost of the $78 ticket… -We were upgraded on the flight from Newark to Houston. The aircraft was a 777-200, the same airplane that Continental flies on international routes, like from Newark to Tel Aviv. It was my first time being in the BusinessFirst section of that aircraft since Continental switched from their old style BusinessFirst seats to the new lie-flat seats. It was a pleasure to be able to make the seat into a bed with the touch a button. There is even a USB plug to charge an iPod for example and a regular 3-prong style plug as well. I did notice that the cutout where your feet go when the seat is made into a bed varied greatly between seats. While some seats had huge footwell cutouts, others had significantly smaller footwells. Bulkheads seemed to have the biggest footwell … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Our SoCal Quasi-Mileage Run…

Never Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on FacebookUpdate, 7/14: United has fixed this glitch as of this morning! Now, when can we discuss fixing the nonstop award calendar glitch? The information in the post below is still useful as it shows you exactly how many seats are for sale in each fare bucket. In other words, if you search for 4 saver awards and there are only 3 available then it will show no availability. But via Expert Mode you can know to search for 3 award seats and lock them up with your miles before somebody else grabs them. The same applies for paid tickets, there may be 3 seats left in a discounted fare bucket, but if you search for 4 seats you’ll wind up paying a higher price for each seat. The ideal strategy would be to book 3 cheaper seats and 1 more expensive seat on a separate reservation.

Cardholders (as well as United elites) receive greatly expanded … [Read more...] about Advanced Level Mileage Post: All About Expert Mode, How To “Hack” United’s Award Bug, And Get The Space You Were Promised
