I’m not sure exactly how much of a loss this is either. I guess it’s similar to the abolition of the fixed price award tickets, and now closer to a fixed value per mile. i posted about at least some of this upthread, but I paid 18k for “upgrade with miles” on SLC-RDU (instead of ~$199 cash) and 25k for a mileage award upgrade in JFK-SLC (upgrade with miles on that leg was 38k or ~$400 cash).
I guess it’s a YMMV thing. But I also suppose the valuation of the mileage for UWM is on the poor side, at about 1.1¢/mi which is understandable to complain about.
