United Fliers Community

Received an email inviting me to UA's Flier's Community...


In typical fashion, you go to enter your CO OnePass number, and the third party site would not accept letters in the OnePass number, only the digits.

Rah! Rah! a small step to being one...

Because it's a UA flyers community, not a CO flyers community.

The programs are not merged yet. You were invited based on your UA flying/status.

Nope - I was invited specifcally based on my CO status - the email said so. I had the same problem. I PM'd Scott about it.

Not true at all. I got one too and I was invited via an email from Continental based on my Continental status.

Heh, seems they jumped the gun on sending emails again.

Same here

Same Here.

My alpha-numeric OnePass # was rejected as 'not a valid CO FF #'. An impass.

To get past that page, I resorted to deleting the alpha part and the web gods smiled upon my incorrect number.

It is asking me what percentage is United...well so far I have flown one segment on a United painted plane. My percentage of 'united' flying is quite small.

This invite isn't tweaked to allow for CO input I think.

Not in my case. I was invited as well and as far as my UA status, while a couple of years ago I had been regularly maintaining 1K status on UA and Plat on CO, for the past 2 years I haven't touched UA metal. Interestingly one of the questions did ask about 1K status, but it didn't appear to be asking about current 1K, but 'if I had ever had 1K status'. I too had the problem entering the letters to my OP account.

FALSE, this was a CO targeted mailing on behalf of Mark Bergsrud, Senior Vice President, Marketing Programs and Distribution.

"Now that United and Continental are in the process of merging, we wanted to invite a selection of Continental's top Elite members to join this community as well."

Just finished a call with the Continental Electronic Support Desk as listed at the bottom of the email. They know nothing about any survey or anything. She actually said she was going to send an email to Mark Bergsrud to tell him that the survey doesn't work due to the alpha characters at the beginning of the OnePass Number.

Well, rather than inundate scott w/pms (I got it as well), I'll just wait to see how it gets resolved here.

I got past the Alpha characters for the CO # by just hitting continue....the third or fourth time it went to the next step with numeric and alphanumeric characters.

This was a CO targeted email as others have mentioned....unfortunatly at this time my flying has dropped off to barely making silver or gold this year after 7 as a plat...bump in the road but at a bad time for me in the merger.
