    Booked an award at Christmas this year with a connection on to GermanWings. Got an email from United saying they did not receive a response from 4U and to call. I ended up with flights on Austrian, but it adds a few extra hours to the trip. Website continues to show availability on 4U, but I don't trust it. HUACA? Or #UnitedITFail?

    There are many kinds of fail when trying to fly 4U on 016 paper. I recently had a paid ticket on Germanwings and was surprised to find out they're not actually a star alliance member despite being owned by LH - LH refused lounge access to a *G connecting from a star alliance flight to 4U. And getting credit posted for the flights was troublesome (not relevant for you, for speaks to the problems).

    You might prefer to suffer with the Austrian option.
