My biggest issue will be the inbound connection from LHR to GVA, on Swiss. If cancelled, I can get there via Eurostar or alternate flights to CDG or LYS. The return is easier; I can manage BSL, GVA,...

Looks like 1x daily SFO-LHR now, and 2x daily SFO-FRA for Sept 10 & 21st. I don't think SFO-FRA was 3x in the past? So SFO-LHR dropped its... was it a 7pm departure? Seems like you can still get...

It seems strange to me that UA (and others?) aren't allowing 100% of what you "earn" through... maybe through the rest of this year... to carry over as qualifying credit towards 2022 status. Meaning,...

QP

Unfortunately, I can no longer find a reference to my card being a "Select" card anymore. The PDF my chase account links to makes no reference to anything special about the card at all, nor does it...

So is the legacy United MP Select card now dead in the water? Not only missing the original benefits (5k PQM after $30k spend) but doesn't even qualify for the new PQP offers?

Separately, only...

That's impressive. At first I thought hey, better potential utilization of space for cargo if they give us a few more inches of legroom! Then the ugly truth hit. They'll give us the choice of paying...

I think one of the problems facing United is that they, not to mention us, really don't have a clue yet what the "new normal" will look like, nor when it will be. United needs to craft a program...

Thanks, yes, I checked the fare rules and no residuals allowed. But at least the tickets aren't tied together, meaning that the two separate travelers can travel separately in the future, right?

Credit goes to purchaser, or individual ticket holder?

If I purchased two tickets SFO-CDG for July, and can't use them, does the value of both tickets go to me (since I purchased them) or is the value restricted to the person whose name is on each...
