    Hi there,
    Just wondering if anyone has experience with how long a UA itinerary takes to ticket if it includes an SA-coded & operated flight? I got the usual warning it could take up to 24 hours but I'm wondering if it usually takes that long or not.

    I know that itins with LH flights included ticket without the wait.

    I ask because I booked a ticket yesterday with UA/LH flights and now want to cancel it within 24 hours because I found a better itin with UA/LH/SA flights but I'm afraid to cancel the original if the second one doesn't ticket for some reason. Note: the original itin booked yesterday is no longer available which is why I'm hesitant.
