A contemplative post for you. Basically, I want to see if you think I’m being slightly paranoid. I have a big award trip booked for this fall. Currently, my itinerary is as follows:

  • United First Class, Washington Dulles (IAD) to Rome (FCO.
  • Some trains, some wine.
  • 14 night cruise aboard the soon to debut Celebrity Reflection, Venice to Barcelona.
  • Lufthansa Business, Barcelona – Frankfurt – Washington Dulles (IAD).

You can see the issue here with my recent relocation announcement. I am absolutely petrified of calling United right now to ask them to do anything with any of these itineraries given all of their IT issues of late. I just don’t have any confidence that they will get it right. Am I a little crazy for considering the purchase of revenue tickets between Atlanta and Dulles for this? I’d love to hear from you. Especially, if you’ve had recent experience with changing award travel with United.
