Hi everyone,

Wanted to jump in here and let you know that we are indeed looking ahead to an announcement about new reward opportunities for MileagePlus members—over and above what you’ve seen already this week. I’ll ask that you sit tight for the next few days, but rest assured you can expect full details from me the minute we go live. And while I know you’ll give us honest feedback (as always), I do believe this is something to look forward to :-).

My guess is that there will be no more complimentary upgrades of any kind but premiers will get a discount on paid upgrades: 10% for Silver, 15% for Gold, 20% for Plat, and 25% for 1K. 0% for GS since they should be flying paid C and F anyway.

Reduction in the amount of miles required to fly the 787?? Like when a store puts things on clearance just to get them off the shelves??


Too soon??

Fix the phantom 5D instead of 6D seat blocking on the 767-300 longhaul flights.

It'll be the 'largest network that flies to every po-dunk city on the east coast' vs. 'the largest network that flies to every po-dunk city in Central America'.

And therefore each claim is almost meaningless to the average traveler.

Two guesses:

1. Miles + cash awards
2. New partner for redemption (Emirates? Westjet?)

If there is a devaluation of the award chart, will it be immediate or will there be time to burn? I think I'm going to burn before the announcement though.

ETA: If it was really good news, I think they would tell us already because of all the negative comments.

hoping it's 1.5x lifetime credit for business flights like it used to be, not just BIS miles.

Must be referring to pmCO. UA has always been just BIS. But it got you a higher lifetime status too than pmCO.

Forget the windmills, you're clearly tilting at thin air.
