Air Canada PQD to be applied to United Acct

Air Canada PQD to be applied to United Acct

  1. TheFury1

    Lucky,

    I’m trying to gain United elite status this year.

    I’m trying to buy an open jaw business fare from DEN to HAN, and then back from PVG to DEN, in July. The best fare I’ve found is on Air Canada, for approx $3400. Unfortunately, I don’t think the PQD from the Air Canada flight would apply to my United acct.

    Is there a way to purchase this itinerary on United? I’ve tried numerous searches, but haven’t been successful.

    Maybe try calling United to see if they can piece together the trip? Pricing may not be the same though.

    What about options on United and other partner carriers? I’m not sure when you’re traveling but I priced out your itinerary for travel this coming June and business class was $3000-5000 depending on the carrier mix.

    Leave 7/15/2017. Return 7/29/2017.
    Cheapest is Air Canada, approx $3400, which I cannot purchase through UA. When I price it out where the long haul segments are on UA or ANA metal, both of which I can purchase through UA, the cheapest is approx $5700. Not worth the difference.

    I thought about contacting UA directly, but wasn’t sure that they would help.

    I’d try contacting UA but I dont think they’ll be able to offer the same fare as Air Canada.

    I didnt realize UA was so stingy when it comes to PQDs. You can only earn PQDs on UA issued tickets. No PQDs for a ticket issued by a partner carrier and credited to UA. Even AA and DL awards a % of flown miles as EQDs/MQDs if you credit flights to them where theyre not the ticketing airline…..

    Yeah, I know. Really sucks that those PQDs won’t apply to UA. Thanks for the reply!

    Well, the PQD requirement is only for accounts where the primary address is in the US. Got any relatives in Canada who you can “borrow” their address from?

    Thought about that already. Unfortunately, I don’t.
