United Airlines has changed its website and disabled access to the old method of searching for Award Travel.
The UAFinder software from this site used the old United site to search for award travel. As of 4-Jan-07, the software no longer works due to the changes United has made in its website.
These changes are substantial, and do offer improvements that lessen the need for the UAFinder software - if the dates you search for (Saver) award travel are not available, a month-long calendar for both outbound and return travel is shown highlighting dates on which award travel is available. The month-long calendars have navigation arrows to display the next or previous month.
Please check out the new United.com Award Travel site and then give me feedback to let me know if you think there's still a need for the UAFinder-type of software.
The last version of the UAFinder software has the capability to display a message that the software has been updated instead of running after successful authentication. That message is displayed now even though there isn't an update - presently there is no UAFinder software that works with the updated United.com website.
