Ok, but irrelevant for other wide-bodies and the 752s.



AA and DL are adding new planes and destinations as well, so this doesn't really differentiate UA among its competitors. Maintaining a...

The service on my last Polaris flight was so disjointed and untrained (blank stares when asking for basic things like hanging a coat, mattress pad or, god help me, a menu) that I can't imagine paying...

OP is referencing a different time frame for the offers I believe. The first buy-up offer they reference is at check-in (not after purchase) and then the lower priced offer happens after you've...

Yep. The fare class availability and fare pricing for a particular class are variable all the way up to boarding. The buy-up offer is keyed to the difference between the available fare and what the...

I did the exact exact same thing. Already have the requisite flights booked to complete it. I've had status at UA for years and AA for a couple of years during that time as well. Curious to see if...

As a follow up, I just spoke with a customer service rep. at Chase on this (call took almost half an hour, most of it on hold). He claims that per the marketing team, no bonuses (10k or 4k) will be...

Has anyone had any issues with receiving the 10k mile bonus for hitting $25k in spend before the terms changed on June 1? I crossed that threshold in late April and haven't received anything. I...

I sent in a complaint about the F meal changes today. I didn't ask for a response as I doubt I'd receive anything of substance anyway. I do think that the only things UA cares about are post-flight...

Bring back the cognac!

I completely agree. I loved having a Courvoisier or two after my sundae on PS flights. They only stocked three or four bottles for the whole 752, so imagine all the barely existent savings! In all...

This is one area where I wish (and can't fathom why they don't) UA would copy DL. Look at the offerings DL has at T4 in JFK: Shake Shack, Blue Smoke, The Palm, a Marcus Samuelson restaurant, plus...

I don't spend anything at the OTG spots in EWR or IAH. The sooner they're gone the better.

My main gripes about UA in 2017 were the cuts to meals in F and J, poor Polaris execution and MX issues of every stripe. The first two issues have been pretty well discussed above, and perhaps all...

Same problem

I'd like to know this too, actually. I got the Plat Amex in August and haven't used the $200 credit at all. Seems a shame to let it go to waste, but if I can use it for United Club passes then...
