Note flights to SIN on United are not guaranteed the new Polaris business class though. Reviews for the old designs are pretty much universally poor, so I probably won't take the risk.

Great thread.
For those grumbling about the fare codes, they are actually extremely useful a) to give to a travel agent to help them find the fare, b) to find it yourself using ITA Matrix, and c) to get a general sense (from the first letter) as to the fare conditions and mileage earning.

In ITA Matrix in particular, you can click on "Advanced controls" and then enter fare code restrictions in the Extension codes box.
For instance, entering F BC=P will show only the fares/flights where you can get a fare starting with "P" as the first letter, which is *Alliance restricted/nonrefundable business class. If you put C:UA in the Routing Codes field, you'll restrict to United Airlines as the carrier. You could even put F AC.YYZ+SIN.P14XCSQF to in the Extension Codes box will only return flights where you can get that fare, though that's probably overkill compared to F BC=P.

The first letter of the fare code can be looked up on the Aeroplan website to see how many Aeroplan miles you'll get for that fare.

UA flies 787 on SFO-SIN which equipped their old business class product, for Polaris cabin you will need to route through SFO-NRT or EWR-NRT.

Any chance to add YVR departures?
And of course I'll ask for YOW too ;) Great work - really appreciate the breakdown of UA's GPU and P fares....

Regarding the TPE sale, after fighting with UA's "maintenance in progress" systems tonight I managed to net the following:

YOW-EWR-IAH-SFO-TPE // TPE-SFO-IAD-YOW for $1186 all in, in W (burning my GPUs in January). For 19,364 PQM's to start the year, I thank you sir!

If you want to burn more in 19, there are even lower fares for ~900 all in Grinning Face With Smiling Eyes

PERMITTED 25MAY THROUGH 31MAY OR 01AUG THROUGH 14AUG OR
01DEC THROUGH 09DEC ON THE OUTBOUND TRANSPACIFIC SECTOR.
