The Guaranteed Upgrade with 1000 mile bonus if no upgrade available is still in place for PE members in 2007. See the following link:

Wow I feel like a heel, I got the UG on that flight on the 16'th. I did recieve 1000 x 2 for a re-route to UA from SFO on the 19'th of Jan so it is still in place.

The 1000 WP points Guareentee is renewed for program year 2007

I asked Senior Worl;dperks Marketing Execs about this last November when I was in Eagan, and they confirmed it was renewed for 2007.

All promotions at Worldperks go through a formal approval process, and this promotion (that's what they call the guareentee) has been "renewed" for program year 2007.

Is the compensation 1,000 miles for EACH segment, or for the entire itinerary?

For each segment you do not receive an elite upgrade and you were eligible for one, you will receive 1,000 compensatory miles.

If you are on a direct flight (2 or more segments, but all flights have the same flight number), you will receive up to 1,000 miles for the entire outbound or inbound trip. (That's my understanding of how the Platinum Guarantee works with direct flights, anyhow)
