Bummer, huh?

I live in a United hub, so I don't have many other options. This is going to make award tickets a bit more tricky. Thank goodness we just did a big redemption for our trip in March.

That does suck, but its not too bad. Looks like they finally realized how cheap their First/Business class international tickets were. Looks like everyone will be flying coach now!

I think united was also the airline that had that mishap with tickets being practically free? people brought down their servers trying to book it left and right..did they end up honoring those?
