I keep trying to book a reservation for a friend from Houston IAH to Quito UIO with United Airlines and keep getting told that there is an error as United does not go there. I know they do as this family has flown United from Houston to Quito many times during the past 20 years. Do I really have to have a United agent book the flight for us?
