United 787-10 (Newark - LA)
United 787-10 Business Class

(This may already be dead by the time you read this…)

Really quick:

This has made the rounds already and we’ve been discussing in the Facebook group (you really need to be in there for fast moving stuff like this) but I just got to a Hyatt I’m mattress-running and wanted to post fast for non-group members.

You can currently book any Polaris seat on United at saver rates from March 14-19, 2024.

Seats are going fast – all you need to know is this:

  • The route MUST be Polaris. That means no domestic and no Mexico/Caribbean/Canada.
  • It’s Saver space – you CAN book with partners like Air Canada and Turkish – or United of course. Compare rates. 
  • Book now, cancel later. United is refundable at no cost. Air Canada is not. Check the rules of the program you use. 
  • This includes the hardest routes you can possibly book in the network.

Example flights you never see available that are:

Houston to Sydney, Australia

LA to Sydney, Australia

San Francisco to Auckland, New Zealand

San Francisco to Papeete

San Francisco to Taipei

Various cities to Tokyo

Hawaii via Turkish works but only in the wonkiest way online and you have no other way to do this on a deal like this so good luck there. 


You can definitely book one way and find another way back if you want more than 5 days.

I want to give credit – I think this originated with Thrifty Traveler – but it moved so fast I can’t say for sure. I expect this all gone by the morning.

Tell me what you book!
