Some advice required. I’m United 1k and need to go to Maui for a wedding with my wife in August.
I booked two tickets in economy with miles for 90k total for 2 roundtrips in economy connecting in LA.
I was debating if it would be worth it to buy two tickets via HNL and see if I can use my regional upgrades. The flights are around 950 each. What does everyone think?
Also. The flights would originate in Newark.
That would be a great use of regional upgrades, in my opinion! That’s over 10 hours of flying
Just get worried about it actually clearing. Anyone know which routes I will have the best luck with?
I would think LA to Hawaii would have a better chance, since Newark to LAX is probably much more business heavy with people actually buying biz class seats.
If you have flights you are looking at – United’s app is actually one of the best to see seat maps and loads. Just pull up the flights you are looking at and see how many open seats are available
