    @MidSouth Skier - Hmm, I am learning a lot - I had no idea of that quirk! Actually, with the power of the Internet, I've also found that it is apparently a known "quirk" that United doesn't allow routing to Australia via Europe. I'd guess that's the likely cause. I'll just have to make sure our return flight is routed through Tokyo or Bangkok.

    Have to say, this is a very educational experience for me. It'll go a lot quicker when I do this the next time :) There's probably a blog guide for beginners in here somewhere... Ultimately, it's definitely worthwhile as there's no way we could've done business class without using miles.

    @Kiwi Ian - there sure is a beginner's guide. Look at the top of this page. Under the START HERE tab is a Beginner's Guide!

    And you're right about the routing to Australia via Europe rule on UA. Heck, AA doesn't even allow routing to Australia via Asia on a single award!
