MVP Nomination Time?

Does anyone know how long it takes for the nomination to go through? I am getting upgraded to MVP and want to book some flights soon so I am a bit antsy. TIA.

I don't see any reason not to book your flights now though...prices may go up while you're waiting. You can call and make sure the reservation reflects your stats once it is active in the system.

I agree with this statement. And FWIW when I nominated my daughter it took 4-5 days. It showed her new status on a Sunday so I don't know if it's a weekend update thing. Regardless, she was ablt to have her new status loaded onto an existing reso and get on the upgrade list.

Thanks for the replies, I called yesterday and they told me they have so many nominations at the beginning of the year, it takes a bit longer. I was put in for nomination on Tuesday and still haven't cleared yet...

It just took 9-10 days for the nomination I just did.

I don't understand why this can't be an automated process?

I don't see this happening- too many chances of fraud. Much easier to make it manual and log for each account. Speaking of which- wonder how many notes are in mine?

Any recent reports of how long MVP nominations are taking, and if the MVP nominations come with MVP Gold Guest Upgrade Certs?

MVP *does not* come with any guest upgrade certs.

Does anyone know how long it takes for the MVP nomination to go through? I filled out the form 2 weeks ago and still no changes.

As a 100k, can I still nominate someone for MVP status even though I used my choice benefit for Lounge+?

You can call into customer care and have them send a message/ticket to the team who processes them if the nominee has a upcoming flight and the normal time range window has passed. I did it that for my partner in the past and their status was updated late the following day the ticket was placed and just in time for their flight.

I nominated Darling Daughter mid-Jan. She had an upcoming reservation that I wanted her to be able to select a PE seat, so after a week of waiting (and with no idea how long it would take to post), I called. Phone agent told me 2-3 weeks. Ultimately took about 2.5 weeks to post.
