Does anyone have any "magic" suggestions for redeeming award miles on United to get seats on international flights from the U.S. to Europe? I have been trying for 3 months (for a trip next Sept.) and the response is always the same, "sorry, no seats available in either econony or business class." I have also had them search every Star Alliance partner and the answer is still the same. One United rep told me that if I had flexibility in my travel dates (which I don't), it might be easier to get seats but even when I had them search other dates, the answer was still the same. One rep even suggested I try a flight consolidator to get a low fare. Anyone done that and had any luck? Could a good travel agent possibly have access to seats? Thanks.
