My upgrade rate to any other UA hub is 0, and that's 95% of my flying. What would the chances of GPU--as--RPU clearing be? If I cleared 8 Y-->F segments over the course of the year, that'd be worth...

This year, looks like I'll end up with ~90,000 PQM and ~$25,000 PQD (~$7.5k UA metal, so I am way way far from GS qualification). A MR is not in my cards, as we have a newborn at home, so travel is...

You’re right. It used to be front and center and easy to find, but now I see only the 016 number. Have you tried calling Chase?

I am under the impression that TSA boarding pass scan data is available to airlines, which is why they sometimes page a specific person to board and other times do only the last call. Am I wrong...

Conditioning us to fight for OH bin space via checked bag fees is the turning point in air travel, IMO. It made flying a competition with fellow passengers, and led to BG number mattering. It’s too...

If redemption values drop below 1cpm, keep in mind UA allows Explorer and Club card holders the option to rebate UA tickets paid on the UA card at 1cpm. You also get PQD and PQM on the purchase. (And...

How bad is the crowding in the aisles of the mini cabin (9-15) during boarding/deplaning? And do Y customers use lavs near row 9?

I was 1H, switched myself to 3A when polarisized, and then was put in 2K on a swap back. The swaps seem to be random enough that I wouldn’t bank on getting a former first seat on a swap back and...

watching the seat maps just after a swap back, UA seems to avoid assigning the “middle middle” seats in the 2-4-2 section unless required due to loads. For example, when my flight swapped back, 7-9DG...

FWIW, I have IAD-FRA on UA and then FRA-GVA on LH. The app is giving me IAD-SFO/ORD-FRA on UA as well as the other IAD-FRA flight as SDC options, with the FRA-GVA flight always the same.

The point I was trying to make is that the marginal value of 2500 RDMs is nothing. UA offering me free wifi on my next three flights before 5/31 would be more persuasive.
