UnitedIf you’re a big United Airlines mileage junkie and want an upper hand when booking mileage tickets, then make sure to check out this blog. It teaches you how to activate what’s called “Expert Mode” in your MileagePlus account, which allows you to see how many seats are in each fare bucket on a given United flight. It also gives the definition of fare bucket, so let them take it from here!

    I don’t feel comfortable clicking on a link and then entering my mileage plus and password. Is there another way to access this potentially valuable information?

      The link appears to be legit as it took me to my account (which I had already signed into earlier), but you can also sign in to your UAL account and go to My Account > Profile > Search Preferences to do the same thing.
