Update 2/4/14: Devaluation is live. It’s different than we were told it would be.

Update at 3:18 PM: Some routes now show the updated price. For instance LAX-HNL is 22,500 in economy. Some routes don’t. For instance ORD-FRA for today’s flight in Lufthansa Business is showing 50,000 (the old price, new price is 70,000). And many searches show no results when there should be tons of results. As anticipated, the implementation is a disaster.

It’s 6:30 AM CT–the time at United headquarters–on February 3rd, and the United devaluation still isn’t live.

Los Angeles to Honolulu is still pricing at 20k miles one way in economy. That will be 22,500 miles when the new prices show up online.

The new prices were supposed to arrive February 1 (Saturday), though Bill covered the quiet changes on united.com that pushed back the date to February 3 (today).

For reference, this is what the devaluation will look like and these are the awards you really should book before the new prices cripple them.

So let’s open this up to the commentariat. Predict (to the minute) when the new prices will (at least begin to) be live on united.com. Closest to the right answer will win pride and admiration!
