UA Saver Award Europe to US

UA Saver Award Europe to US

    Hello OMAAT!

    I’m looking to find an UA economy saver departing from OPO/LIS 12/30 or 12/31, stopover/layover in ORD 12/31, then departing to OKC 1/1.

    I know that sometimes searching each segment individually will show availability than if you just searched OPO-OKC organically. I’ve tried a couple major hubs (LHR, CDG) with no luck. Hopefully you guys know a few more good hubs to check.

    Thanks for all your tips and help.

    Hi [USER=2419]@Alexander[/USER], and welcome!

    That’s a tough time of year, but look for longhauls flown by Austrian or Turkish.

    Neither London nor Paris are hubs for Star Alliance airlines. You generally want to search from hub city to hub city. So Dallas to London likely won’t show much on but Chicago to Brussels may have more.

    You may have to purchase some of the shorter segments, as the new United routing rules make it harder to compile awards.
