TK award seat not showing on MileagePlus
I’m looking for an award seat from NYC to IST. Transferring Chase UR points, so *A/MileagePlus is my best bet. ExpertFlier shows award availability on all three of TK’s non-stops on my dates, but MileagePlus has me routing on UA to different US gateways to fly TK. (ORD, HOU, IAD).
Would I be more likely to get the direct flights by calling into MileagePlus?
Does the award show up on Lifemiles and/or Aeroplan? If it does, yeah call UA and just feed them the date and flight info.
Great tip, thanks!
