    Routing is IAD-BOS-DCA. UA out and US back. I need the US flight b/c I need to be able to stay as late as possible in BOS. Last flight is US - but, I may be able to sneak out earlier. Can I do SDC from the US metal to UA metal on a UA ticket? [1k no fee of course ;)]

    Thanks

    Cheers -

    The official policy says that the flights must be on UA metal. It isn't 100% clear if that's all flights or just the new flights, but IME it usually means all flights, at least at the airport. On the phone they can sometimes override that but not always.

    That you'd also be trying to change airports (DCA->IAD) probably is going to work against you as the SDC policy doesn't permit that, per the rules.
