I recently flew SEA-SFO in row 5, and it seemed like everyone around me was in Group E, regardless of window, aisle, middle. Have they changed how they assign boarding groups?

I'm looking to do a status match to MVP. What is the challenge mileage requirement? 5,000 miles in 90 days, 10,000 in 90?

Also, any credit for DL miles while on an AS challenge?

F9's Strategy to Capitalize on UA Changes?

I'm 2P on UA, and will not be flying them anymore due to the essential elimination of benefits for flyers with less than 50k miles of annual flying.

The one UA hub this could really impact is DEN,...
