United Excursionist perk in Oceania
I’ve been planning a trip to the south pacific (fiji, cook islands) from Beijing. I was wondering if it’s possible to string together a flight from Beijing to the cook islands (RAR) with Air New Zealand, then fly using the excursionist perk from RAR to NAD (fiji). Of course, this would have to be via Auckland, which is in a different region as defined by United. To put it simply, is it possible to use the excursionist perk from region A to the region A, but via region B?
Unfortunately no. you can’t cross regions or boomerang around while on the Excursionist Perk flights, though you can connect, as long as it’s in the same region.
