Nice feature. I typed in a few destinations (not served by united ) to another city (not served by United) and it returned a bunch of options. I remember this being available on the old PMUA United.com, but this was never a feature of the old continental.com. Personally, I think this is nice, but I am inclined to book these outside of united.com. I shudder to think what positions united would take it something went wrong. I use a reliable TA for outside bookings.
