    Need some help to figure out if it is possible to book a ticket with only the International portion in W?

    I have an upcoming trip with a UA-operated domestic portion and a *-partner-operated domestic portion and want to know if it is possible online or by phone to have only the UA-operated Int'l portion in W (so I can apply a GPU).

    TIA

    There's several options...

    1) This would be a fare break i.e A-B, B-C which might result in a higher fare.

    2) Purchase the Itinerary then call UA to upfare the international segment but this might require a re-price of the whole itinerary.

    3) Purchase the whole thing in W which might be cheaper than Option 1.

    Odds of it being cheaper to segment out the fare that way versus just buying the whole thing as a W are very low. If you have specific cities/dates I'm sure someone can price it out to tell you, but I wouldn't expect it to be a good deal.
