United Airlines' immediate suspension of its Newark to Mumbai route has led to a unique opportunity on Sunday, June 22. The airline is moving a Boeing 777-300 from Mumbai back to the mainland US tomorrow. The aircraft has been ferried from Mumbai to Honolulu and tomorrow at 7am it will depart for Newark (EWR), according to Live and Let's Fly, with some amazing award space open in Polaris, United's top business class.

Granted, you have to already be in Hawaii, but the award availability on this flight is certainly a rare opportunity: A nine-hour flight in lie-flat seats for only 50,000 miles.

A seat up front is currently pricing out at $1,109 for the flight if you book it with cash. TPG currently values United miles at 1.3 cents each. Using miles for this flight would see that reward redemption push that value closer to 2.0 cents per mile, representing an awesome value for this unique flight.

And thee's more good news if you are looking to catch this flight — it's still wide open. At the time of publication, almost every single seat on the plane is still open, including all business class seats.

If you're in Hawaii and headed home tomorrow, this flight is a great opportunity for an amazing award redemption.
