Forcing overnight connection on UA award
Hello, I am trying to redeem UA miles for travel during Christmas time. While the old system a couple of years ago allowed me to search multi-city itinerary to have an overnight connection in one-way award (less than 24 hours of course), the current system seems to price it as two one-ways if I do that. So my question: is there any way to “force” UA to choose an overnight connection for me? I tried to choose a late departure but it still only gives me the red-eye option. Thanks.
Find space on each segment then call UA?
I’ve not done this with UA but a few years ago AA had me flying a redeye across the country LAX-CLT in a standard recliner seat, then backtracking CLT-MEM. I was able to call and get them to let me overnight in DFW where I got to sleep in a real bed which was needed since I’d flown overnight from Fiji to LAX.
