United doesn’t offer many flight award sales so if you were hoping to use your miles for a flight to Europe this spring, you are in luck. Until May 14, 2009, United Mileage Plus members can travel between North America and Europe in coach for only 40,000 miles (normally 55,000 miles). The offer is valid between the U.S. 48, Alaska or Canada and Amsterdam, Brussels, Frankfurt, Geneva, London, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Rome or Zurich.
The offer is valid on United and United Express flights only (codeshare flights are not eligible) and blackout dates include April 6 through April 15, 2009. Award reservations must be made online so you won’t be able to call reservations to book these discounted awards. The discount only applies to roundtrip coach travel and capacity is limited.
