UA Routing Through Asia from Europe

UA Routing Through Asia from Europe

  1. Brad B

    It used to be possible to route through Asia from Europe on UA award tickets ie FRA-PEK-SFO ist that no longer possible?

  2. David W

    It still is, I think. Might be dependent on what the UA online tool spits out and/or the particular routing. I couldnt find anything for FRA-SFO via Asia but I looked for JFK-BKK and it gave me JFK-BRU-CDG-BKK on Brussels Air in economy for JFK-BRU-CDG and Thai First for CDG-BKK.

  3. David W

    Do UA award tickets have any MPM restrictions? If they do, that might be why. FRA-PEK-SFO is almost double the distance of FRA-SFO.

    Uh [USER=29]@David W[/USER], you may want to change one of those routings since they’re the same. 😉

    Oh whooooops. Thanks!

    Mmmm, I don’t think it’s ever been officially possible (at least not post-merger) to route from Europe to the US via Asia.

    You can go from the US to Asia via Europe, or Asia to US via Europe though — is that what you were thinking of?
