UA Award Travel: Can I Book This?

Wed Jun 15, 2005 9:36 am

Hello all,
This is a question directed to any in the know about mileage plus award travel booking. I am planning to book award travel soon, but not sure if I can do a multiple destination type booking. I would depart HNL-BIL and return MSO-HNL both via DEN. I can opt for a r/t HNL-BIL-HNL but returning from MSO will save me about 300 miles of driving! So what's the verdict, can I book that with miles? If not, is there maybe a way I can trade the same miles for a nice discount? Thanks very much!

Well of course, you'd simply be booking an "open-jaw".

http://www.united.com/page/article/0,6722,1141,00.html

One stopover en route to your final destination or one open jaw is permitted for a flight award on United between the continental U.S. and Hawaii or between the U.S. and the Caribbean, Asia, Australia, Central and South America or Europe. No stopovers are permitted within a geographic region.
