they could take a selective GS approach, but it would only be fair to do an across the board approach. None of us have benefited from GS benefits this year. I only have $5K spend in 2020, very little...

I don’t think Lufthansa First Class is a fair comparison to GS treatment. United’s culture doesn’t at all support an experience at that level (which in itself is another subject altogether).
