United Temporarily Blocks Award Bookings [Thai & TAP Unblocked]
Update 2/28/19: Thai and TAP can now be booked again. Hat tip to Running With Miles.
Update 2/20/19: ANA awards are now also being blocked. Hat tip to LoyaltyLobby
United Airlines is currently blocking award space on the following three Star Alliance airlines:
- Singapore Airlines
- Thai Airways
- TAP Air Portugal
When you try to request these flights the following error message appears:
According to a statement received by VFTW this is a temporary issue caused by the fact that some partner award tickets are not being confirmed properly by those three airlines currently. Rather than having to deal with these not being ticketed correctly United has decided to remove the ability to book these airlines until the issue is resolved. Fingers crossed the issue is resolved quickly.
