United Airlines is launching their first United Polaris preview flight on February 13, 2017 from Chicago O’Hare to San Francisco onboard their Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, featuring 60 seats in United Polaris Business Class.

To celebrate, they are allowing United MileagePlus members to redeem miles through a MileagePlus Exclusives auction to book this package.

United Polaris

This experience includes:

  • Two tickets to experience United Polaris business class on United’s first Boeing 777-300ER aircraft
    • Depart Chicago O’Hare on Monday, February 13, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. central time
  • One night hotel stay in San Francisco (double occupancy)
    • Check in: Monday, February 13, 2017
    • Check out: Tuesday, February 14, 2017
  • United Economy domestic airfare for two to Chicago O’Hare on Monday, February 13, 2017
  • United Economy domestic airfare for two from San Francisco on Tuesday, February 14, 2017

Bottom Line

If you were hoping to redeem your miles for this, booking a regular award ticket will result in no luck for this flight as it’s sold out, however you can still have your chance to score two tickets through MileagePlus Exclusives. However, the current bid price is pretty steep at 241,000 MileagePlus miles.

If you are looking for a way to earn more United MileagePlus miles, remember United is a transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards.

Also, keep in mind, this package will not yield you any Premier Qualifying Miles.
