Default MR transit @ SFO with UA

Am thinking of a MR (SYD-SFO) in 2 weeks time before my exams.

ex-SYD: UA870
ex-SFO: UA863

I should have about 9 hours on ground. Will UA issue my outward BP >2hrs before check-in? Intending to camp in the RCC and study. TIA

I don't see a problem with that. Same itinerary I presume?

But why would you? 9 hours will get dull..fast. Go into town! SF is only a short train ride away.

Maybe Nick C needs to study now because he hasn't been leading a dull student's life all along.

9 hours should give me enough time to burn all my notes, mix the ashes in water and consume them all

Change of plans. Looks like I'm headed to MEL instead. Was so preoccupied with my thesis that I assumed I clicked continue after entering my CC details on dot.bomb Only realised it this morning when I checked my inbox for my booking confirmation. By then CPM went up by 1.7 cents.

I hear it cures sickness as well... Scribble a few words on a piece of paper, burn it and drink the ashes mixed with water... Your professional opinion??

Dot.bomb gets us every time! Sorry to hear you've joined the club! Always log out then back in to insure you've actually been ticketed. Then print that bad boy out for proof!
