Oh I can see the uproar this would cause. US CP's would be pissed as their 100K tier would be immediately devaluated from 7 to 3 days for upgrades to clear. HP's Plats would be equally mad as they now would have to earn an additional 25K EQM's to get the same benefit!

Are US's 319/320/321(?)/752's configured with the same amt of F seats in the comparable HP a/c type cabin?

Something tells me their 733's probabaly have more F seats than HP's 8.

Although the CP do clear at 7 days if seats are available on US, US does hold back more seats. It is usually at least 4 seats per flight. That applies to the 737, A319, and A320(I believe) aircraft. The number is smaller on the 757's(3?), but it is uncommon for anyone to get an upgrade in advance on them (near impossible in advance on aircraft going to LAS).

I don't know about the A321, A330 and 767 aircraft, but it is tradtionally a high number (12-14) on trans-atlantic aircraft.

As a result, elites on US tend to get upgraded more (due to the generally larger FC sections), but a larger number of them have to do the 'gate dance'.

Although I don't have it handy, I'm certain I read an FAQ published by USAirways that the newly merged carrier will inherit the Dividend Miles program, in name. The details of the elite thresholds was not discussed. My assumption, however, is that they will remain 25K/50K/100K because the US route network, along with the Star Alliance network, gives members much greater opportunities to earn miles.

Yuck! DM = BM

They should take this opportunity to come up with something a little more "catchy".
