Hey guys. New here so go easy please... I'm planning to fly to NYC to San Jose, CA (reward ticket) to start my masters. I wanted to booked my travel using United... 1) I don't see any kind of economy class availability for the dates in question. I checked a few weeks ago and there seemed to be a bunch. Does United release seats or alter the availability based on the time before the flight? 2) Is there anyway to arrange a stopover so I can check out Texas or something for a day? 3) If I'm forced to book Bus/First. What kind of a product should I expect? Is there some way to look this up? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! Edit: Yes sorry guys. This is an award booking!
