Need creative ideas for using United miles to upgrade to Africa

Jump to last reply

Greetings,
I am feeling a little bummed out at the moment and wanted to ask if anyone has thoughts on how we can use our 350K carefully saved United miles to find an upgrade to get from the U.S. to Johannesburg.

I have attempted to find Star Alliance help but keep getting stuck, and have never had good luck with that avenue in the past.

I'm not sure how to best research a circuitous itinerary, e.g., U.S. > Europe > Johannesburg

Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks!
