United is offering coach awards between the mainland US and Hawaii for 32,000 miles instead of their usual 40,000.
I had to do a double-take for a moment, I had forgotten for about 30 seconds that a coach Hawaii award was 40,000 now rather than the 35,000 I’ve been used to for so long!
They raise the price and lower it, and tell you you’re getting a discount..
Well, I have no great desire to fly to Hawaii in non-upgradeable coach. But it’s one of the more desirable awards for the world at large. So the details are that you have to book by February 2 for travel through May 12, and you have to use only United or United Express flights — no Continental or US Airways.
