    Does UA now allow one-way award using SQ and TG? How about upgrades using miles when buying TG or SQ tickets?

    1) Yes, assuming you can find the inventory.

    2) Yes, as part of the *A upgrade program. Note that not only do you need to have the inventory (very hard on SQ, not so bad on TG) but you also must be on a Y or B fare and you pay miles per segment, not per direction. There are some other limitations as well. Generally *A upgrades are not a great deal.

    UA allows one way award using any carrier or combination of carriers. The downside is that you do not get a stopover when booking a one way. You do get one stopover when booking as a round trip.
