I am about to do this all over again on Friday. This time I called ASAP to try the upgrade. It was sent to IM again.

Sadly, the mess last week caused me to miss my flight as I waited at check-in to get it resolved.

The UA TA was very helpful and called the gate. She also pointed out which security line was best. I made it to the gate 10 minutes prior to departure and was rejected. Obviously, the GA did not know I was the GS. I asked if they rebooked me automatically since they closed early. She pointed towards where customer service is and said "try your luck there." As I walked a way an older woman comes to the gate and the GA said aloud, "That must be our GS. Too bad we closed early." My age and unisex name continue to give me problems on UA.

If it wasn't for a GREAT flight on UA863 with Laddin, I would be splitting my money this year. Laddin on UA863 is officially my sky angel.
