Travel to India using Business Saver award on United Airlines

Jump to last reply

Need advice please! I am traveling to India late January-February 2014. I am using a Business Saver award on United.

Departing from Denver, I am currently going east through Washington DC and Frankfurt, arriving in Mumbai. I am flying United to Frankfurt (777-200) and then connecting on Lufthansa for a flight to Mumbai (747-400).

On my return, I am debating between the following routings: 1) flying east from Delhi to Tokyo to Denver OR 2) flying west from Delhi to Newark to Denver. The Delhi to Tokyo flight would be on an ANA 767-300 which is NOT lie flat (only 160 degrees - ugh), which is an 8-hour flight leaving at 1:15 a.m., but I would connect in Tokyo onto a United 787 dreamliner. The alternative, if I can get it, would be flying out of Delhi to Newark on a United 777-200 and then connecting through Chicago. The travel times are about the same.

Would love any insights on which direction is best to travel and which carrier(s)/planes are best.

Thanks in advance!
