Star Alliance carrier United Airlines starts a lot of interesting nonstop connections to various European destinations this spring. Among them are nonstop flights between Newark and Palma de Mallorca, operated thrice weekly by a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. You can now purchase tickets for these flights for just €1,302. A fare that includes two checked bags, lounge access and – of course – lie-flat business class seating.
Most of our links will forward you to United Airlines. To get these redirects to work, you need to visit united.com at least once before.
United does not offer any eased up rebooking or cancellation rules for Basic Economy tickets.
All other fare types can be changed without paying a rebooking fee, if you book before January 31, 2022. You’d still have to pay the price difference between your old and new date. Get more information here.
Our availability calendar shows you all available flights at the lowest fare for trips up to 28 days. If you are looking for the nonstop tickets, it is best to search on the carrier’s website. Since Star Alliance partners like Lufthansa offer flights at the same price with a stop in Frankfurt or Munich, you can also look there for tickets.
United plans to use one of their remaining Boeing 767 on these flights. Their business class cabin is retrofitted to the contemporary Polaris product.

The fare rules don’t state how long this offer will be around, but the last time it was gone very quickly. A minimum stay of three days applies to get cheapest tickets. The cheap nonstop tickets are only available in June, July and August 2022.
Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are three main reasons for that:
- The Covid-19 Pandemic
During the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19, planning international travel got more and more risky because of ever-changing restrictions. In contrast to many online travel agencies, most airlines modified their terms & conditions to become more customer friendly. Rebooking conditions are eased, change fees are waived and cancellations are much easier when there is no third party involved.
Further, by adding an OTA to your plans, you increase the risk of one service provider involved going bankrupt. Now, the airline and the online travel agency involved could vanish along with your money.
- Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airlines has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward you information like flight changes instead receiving them directly from the airline. You may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem solving.
This especially applies for premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
- Baggage Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are more and more common. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
