...and despite the numerous discussion re. downgrades, they are actually pretty rare (a single downgrade can generate pages of discussion here). I have never been downgraded in the years since the merger and that's probably 75-100 flights between the Mainland and Hawaii, most up front, and most w/ upgrades. I have only witnessed one involuntary downgrade and that was a United employee who was moved back on a IAH-HNL flight. She accepted the downgrade very graciously. Hawaii flights, heading for a leisure destination, tend to have a much smaller percentage of Premiers on board than a lot of other routes.
