Today Only: Up to 50% Off United Awards to Mumbai, India

With the closure of Pakistani airspace, United suspended its India flying. They extended cancellation through late October right before the airspace re-opened. United added India flights back into their schedule. It doesn’t surprise me to see certain flights lightly booked.

As a result they’re using the mileage program to unload seats at a discount. United is running a flash sale – today only – with 50% off awards to Mumbai.

  • Coach only
  • The best discounts are for co-brand credit card holders, with discounts varying by status
  • They’re willing to publish a ‘regular’ saver price since valid travel dates are prior to the elimination of award charts (travel through November 15)

Redeem today for travel September 8 through November 3.
