    "Get the most access to Saver Award seats—we reserve a special inventory exclusively for 1K members."

    If I'm logged in as a 1K do I see this special inventory or is there something I have to do?

    Yes, you will see this inventory automatically. If you are in expert mode, it also shows up as a separate bucket when you are checking a specific flight for awards. Note that it is only for economy seats.

    You could also status match to CO Plat and try booking CO flights if those are an option for your schedule. CO Plats get extra Saver Coach (Fare Class: XN) and Saver First/BusinessFirst (Fare Class: O) availability.

    Good point Cuse44. I have status matched, just never think of CO because I don't understand them as well as UA (even if the are "the same.")

    So, CO has First Saver Pass Awards for 25,000 miles for both directions, UA had first for 50,000 miles outbound, 25,000 return. Problem was CO flight times in and out of were inconvenient (depart 6 am, three days later arriive back at midnight, home is an hour from the airport and the older driver doesn't/shouldn't drive after dark). UA will have him leaving home at 9 am, returning at 2 pm.

    But I'm going to try to remember to check CO in the future.Thanks!

    The extra coach saver award inventory is the NY bucket.
