Quick United Airlines Question

Jump to last reply

I need a little help from you air travel gurus who hang out on this part of the site. We're holding a UA FF award on Lufthansa, AMS to SFO, in April. Received an email yesterday from UA reporting a 20-minute time change to our reservation on both the AMS to FRA segment and the FRA to SFO segment. Does this free us to change to a totally different flight without paying UA's $75 pp change fee? If that 20-minute change allows us to change flights without a penalty, how long do we have to make the change after UA notified us--hours, days, months?

We're currently in economy on the A380, hoping for availability to open up for a business class saver award on that flight (for added FF miles), even though that could happen just a few days prior to the flight. When did a flight from FRA to SFO in October 2012, there was tons of availability for business class saver awards. At that time changes could be made without a penalty, and we took advantage of that. There's very little availability for a business class saver award on LH in all of 2014 as far as I can see, and that's disappointing.

Thanks so much for your replies. You folks rock!
