Looking to book 2 Business one way tix from CGN to ORD on Lufthansa using United miles for next December 4th (next year). When might I expect to see DLH award availability on the UAL site? Thank you.
I would wait about a month or so before checking award availability for Dec 2016. Flight schedules are not available until just under a year and award availability might not show up until 11 months away
United opens their schedule 338 days before departure: [URL]http://boardingarea.com/onemileatatime/2014/03/21/when-do-airlines-open-award-seats/[/URL]

Is it best to book the first award that becomes available (and pay some sort of change fee), or is it better to chance it and wait for a better deal? As you can see, I’m new at this. Thanks…
No worries, we were all new once! I don’t think there’s much advantage to booking [I]exactly[/I] at that window, as not all airlines release award space right at that moment. Within the first few weeks is ideal though, so we try to target 10-11 months out for the best selection.
