I'm just happy that they work. And for the record, I have gotten a buzz after an initial buzz that put me back on time after an initial delay.

I'd be comfortable with a Q fare as a 1K on that route. Not many people are outranking you for status. And it doesn't seem as if it's very popular in direct J bookings.

What's the current load (based on expert mode)?

How full is E+?

What status are you, what fare class are you on, and how are you supporting the upgrade?

If you maintain Marriott Platinum, there is no need to push for the PQD or PQM.

If not, get the UA Chase Card, which exempts PQDs (up to Premier Plat) if you spend $25,000 or more annually.

Change to the direct flight. A 20 minute connection at IAH is asking for trouble, especially if you have to change from, say Terminal C, to Terminal E.
