International business class saver award space on US carriers have become a unicorn as the world reopens, but United has opened up a good amount of availability between the US and London.

Dates below are for nonstop availability, but you can also connect from other US cities.

United charges 60K miles each way for business saver flights between North America and Europe, plus you can book a free stopover on a round-trip. You can transfer points instantly from Chase to United. A close-in mileage fee can add a few thousand miles each way, book travel one-way to avoid paying higher mileage fees on a round-trip.

ANA charges a mere 88K miles round-trip, but it can take a day or 2 to transfer miles from AMEX to ANA. You may be able to hold award space by calling ANA.

Turkish Airlines charges just 45K miles each way. Miles transfer instantly from Capital One and Citi. See booking instructions here.

Other Star Alliance airlines, such as Air Canada, Avianca, and more, can also book these flights.

Note that flights departing London are subject to hefty UK departure taxes. You may want to fly one-way to London and fly home from another European city to avoid those.

How can I transfer from citi to turkish if my friend has a premier card ??

post is showing up as posted “yesterday”

Note of caution: Tall people be aware that United Polaris seats are very short, so anyone over 5’10” will have problem fitting on lie-flat bed. And they are not really wide, so for tall person Polaris is really small-seat option, most likely will have to nap in half-seated position.
As to compare Polaris seat to CX Business or JAL Business Suite – much much smaller and narrower. So be aware of that. On the other hand these flights are 6-6,5 hours long with not much time to sleep between the meal services.
Lately United updated their meal offerings and they are better what it used to be few years back. That’s a plus. But cramped seats are no fun! You may opt out for Premium Economy for 45,000 each way.

Lucky most availability is LHR to USA so day flights. 😉

If I need flexible dates, can I book and, if need be, reschedule with no penalty?

Zack

from United.com “Fee for making a change to a ticket for travel originating in the U.S. 30 or fewer days before departure – No fee”

Oscar

If I book one day, and call them to move back two days, will day honor me the saver award, even though it’s not available on two days before?

Zack

No. I tried this once and it didn’t work

How do I signup for Star Alliance?

Joe

Once you have a well run airline with frequent flights serving a large geographic region you can apply directly

David

I’m a United Club member for years, just couldn’t figure it out.
Star Alliance keeps on redirecting me to my FFP in United.
Any link to sign up?
