    Bookmarked! This is a thorough and well written guide. It is timely and very much appreciated. For dummies like me, it might be worth noting that using Greasemonkey scripts requires that the installation of Greasemonkey. Here’s where I got it for Firefox:

    Great tool. If UA/CO would only not have all the upgrade buckets at 0 I would be happy. Every time I search for something and check the fare classes all I see are R, RN, etc as 0 availability.

    I have loaded all your scripts & they are lovely.
    Many thanks.

I honestly have no idea why United asks anyways rather than just searching for the whole trip from the get-go but they do. Load up this script and after you submit the advanced form it will just jump straight to the search results. Also, if you want to force the site to only show GPU-eligible fare classes as part of the Advanced Search …. […]

    I used this excellent script to book couple of fights — now that i’m planning summer 2013 holidays again I’ve reloaded the script but the fare buckets are no longer being shown — am I missing something or has dot-Bomb some how blocked this brilliant script?

    […] at the same time rather than only one. I actually wrote a GreaseMonkey/TamperMonkey script to automate the process of adding the GPU-eligible fares in to the united.com page, just to save a bit of time. __________________ Travel Tales | Cash Back on Booking Twitter | […]
