As of last month, this can still be done at the UC or by calling in (HUCA obviously). "Within 3 hours" is how most of my RPUs get used. I mean... how else are you supposed to use them?

I don't see any reason not to report it. While we're (obviously) only getting one side of the story, the bizarre circumstances surrounding this situation merit reporting.

I was there last Thursday and the CC readers were broken, so the only thing they had was the free crap. I assume that depleted the stock quite a bit.

If I'm reading this correctly, the mechanism would be similar to how first class pricing often works now in that it will be a fare that requires inventory in 2 separate buckets to be available. As...

There are reports of this happening at SFO as well, and, to clarify, the "/" symbol is generally a substitute for "or", rather than "and". Thus, "Polaris / 1k" is shorthand for "Polaris or 1k". ...

Given that PJs are non-perishable and don't weigh much, I really can't understand the rationale for under-catering them. Overall, the whole "we offer all these amenities, but you have to ask for...

I'm a huge fan of 7 A/F, since I'm able to step out without bothering the other two people. Best seats in Y, IMO.

I'm still surprised that UA hasn't corrected the copy-paste error they made copying 1k PQM requirements from DL diamond. Not that I'm complaining, since I barely squeeze by with 100,000 PQM each...
