Hey everyone! I will be flying UA from STL to LAS, and then TG from LAX to BKK. Can I take the miles that I earn on TG, and transfer them to UA? If I can, that would be totally wicked, becuase that would get me a free ticket.....finally! LOL, well, anyways, thanks in advance!

Collecting the miles from another Star Alliance carrier to UA is really easy, just put your UA FF number in the reservation or at check-in. I've had good luck using UA miles for tickets on TG as well as LH and Asiana and SQ. LH is the only one AFAIK that allows using UA miles to upgrade.

I've have very different experiences than FlyingTexan - from my experience when cashing in UA miles for international flights, espeically trans-Pacific, I can only get seats on other Star Alliance partners. Two recent examples:
SFO-ICN on OZ
ICN-BKK on TG
BKK-HKG on TG
HKG-SFO on SQ
LAX-ICN on OZ
ICN-BKK on TG
BKK-NRT on TG
NRT-LAX on SQ
