With the new United management, we are demoted below a new level that did not exist when we all stayed loyal to United and earned million mile status. This new level, added by the new United management, puts us in third place rather than in second place, elite wise. We could have been grandfather but apparently, the new United does not feel that the old United members deserve that benefit.
Yu are not being "demoted" at all. You were previously given the 50k miles/year level -- which was called Premier Executive. The 50k miles/year level will be called Premier Gold going forward. The fact that Premier Executive was one step below 1k is irrelevant. It was the 50k level.
