United Business???

United Business???

    I have about 600k united miles I have been saving. I have to make a trip from newark to LA for just one night. The cash ticket will cost me $600 for economy middle seat or over 800 if I go to the extra leg room and want an aisle. I can get the business first that appear to be the lay down seats for 50k miles each way. The retail cost for those if paying cash is about $4,000. Should I pay the $800 or use the miles and go business first. I am taking the red eye home. Thanks for your help!

    Mike are the cash values one way or round trip for your dates? And have you been saving these UA miles for something special?

    When paying cash, is UA the only option to pay? Or are you open for other airlines as well?
