Deal Alert: United Business Awards to Australia for 4!

UPDATE (06/17/2022) This deal is now dead.


I’m always ambivalent about reporting about these things, but United just added their new San Francisco to Brisbane to their booking tool and I am seeing upto 4 award seats on certain days this coming winter in business class:

The award availability is pretty spread out, but is available using Aeroplan points, LifeMiles, and United miles. Virgin Australia has a bunch of saver availbility onward to other Oceanic destinations so connecting through Brisbane on a ticket shouldn’t be an issue.

As a reminder:

  • United charges 80,000 miles for North America to Oceania
  • Air Canada charges 85,000 miles for North America to Oceania
  • LifeMiles charges 80,000 miles for North America to Oceania

If you book using Aeroplan and United, it will be fairly easy to get those Virgin Australia connections onward.

Anyway good luck booking those award tickets everyone!
