    Hi guys...A friend of mine is looking for a united awards ticket (30,000) to go to Switzerland for a great friend's wedding on July 1st, I check the site like 15 times a day but if someone sees a 30,000 ticket from ORD-Zurich on July 1st...Can you please let me know asap...Thanks!

    Ps I just don't have any UR or United points or obviously I'd take care of the points to get the regular one of 55k...thanks

    The following hilarious itinerary is the very first I found, is available on united.com segment-by-segment, and a very kind reservations agent should be able to help you book it over the phone for 30,000 miles in coach:
    • 28 June ORD-IAD 9:33 p.m.–12:21 a.m. UA514
    • 29 June IAD-LHR 9:39 a.m.–9:55 p.m. UA922 (a rare daytime transatlantic flight!)
    • 30 June LHR-ZRH 6 a.m.–8:40 a.m. LX345 (or in principle any LHR-ZRH departing before 9:55 p.m. 30 June)
    The general strategy for international award travel is to try to find availability on any transoceanic segment first. Domestic availability tends to be easier to find, and international connections are allowed to be quite long (up to 24 hours), so once you've found an intl flight to anchor to, the rest is easy.
