Goes with IRROPS handling, but 1K line is definitely a life saver.
I'm not a segments flyer but last year my CPU rate was one of the worst ever so I don't know how big that benefit is. Most my CPUs are on short flights anyways. OP said personal flights will get moved to UA as well. Hopefully your personal travel is further away than your business travel. RPUs and GPUs can be useful there.

As for tricks to earning status on PQS, other than booking full fare, you just have to fly more. I'm guessing you have no trouble meeting the PQD requirement.
