A reader wrote in today to let me know he’s seeing a cancellation message from United for his 4 Mile First Class awards to Asia.
Message From United Is Showing Cancelled 4 Mile Award Ticket
Your itinerary cannot be retrieved because it has been cancelled. You may use the portion of your ticket that has not been flown towards a new trip by selecting Reissue Ticket. A change flight fee may apply.
This reservation has been cancelled.
This is interesting. Not only because the ticket was cancelled. But because another reader chatted with me about their reservations still showing the following messages.
Message From United For 4 Mile First Class Award Ticket
This reservation was ticketed and confirmed on Sun., Jul. 15, 2012 at 12:45 p.m. Central Time.
Interesting approach United is taking here.
My initial thought was that United’s announcement on Flyertalk was just legal positioning. But it now appears they are moving forward with their intent to cancel the obvious mistake awards that priced out First Class awards to Asia for as little as 4 miles.
What are your 4 mile award reservations showing?
