I'm about to book my first big flight after accumulating miles for a year, and I have a couple quick questions. My flight has several legs.. Hartford to Seoul via Chicago, with the second part on OZ, a 23 hour layover,then down to Singapore on SQ, then over to Tokyo a few days after on NH, and finally several days later home through DC, with the long leg also on NH. All in business class. My first question is that as far as I can tell, I can't book this easily on the united page. Will I just have to suck it up and pay the 25 dollar fee? Or can I book the individual segments, pay extra miles, and then have united combine it and refund the difference? I'd have to transfer more chase points in to do this, so I'd rather not. Also, it seems like I can't put the award on hold.. Is that true? Also, if later on something in first comes available, or another route that I was eyeing, is it true that I can change it so long as I do a round trip from bDL and hit Singapore and Tokyo for a few days each? Finally, does this seem like a good itinerary? I'm looking for an all around high quality flight experience, of course. Thanks!
