    Do you think United minds people doing this? If one does it often does that not look good?

    I think that it happens so infrequently as to be a rounding error in the overall scope of the program.

    Unless they're constantly rerouting via HNL or something I would think to get flagged.

    Still just a rounding error IMO. If it happens too often the likely recourse would be UA actually fixing the systems to follow their published rules more than anything else.

    One of my favs is something like a SEA-ORD non-stop that you've booked. SDC options include SEA-IAD/EWR/IAH-ORD and v.v. Can definitely rack up additional PQM with this if you want.

    When I pull up the fare rules on UA.com I don't really see any routing rules. I know on dl the permissable connecting cities are spelled out explicitly. Am I looking in the wrong place? Would ITA be a better resource?

    Routing rules are published separately from fare rules (though fare rules can include some route restrictions from time to time). I am unaware of any publicly available, free resource which publishes routing rules.

    I wonder if I could do LAX-EWR via NRT :D

    On no... Another thread to further increase the time spent on my already time-consuming obsession! :eek:
