Does Gold Choice mean fewer upgrades?

I've traveled at a few airports with Gold Choice recently. I'm Pres Circle and it seems my upgrades aren't as good. Is Hertz using this to give some illusion of choice and value or is this just an...

I book the same kinds of itineraries as other people do. To boot, the inventory that partners show, doesn't even match what AS offers. I see 20 F class tickets on AA for a flight I want, but AS...

Sorry, but the only troll is your comment. I have some rather valid concerns here. Rigid? The only rigid point would be say wanting to go to the city of my destination. It's not like I can make...

I tried using miles to hit Europe last year. No options with ANY of AS's partners. Continental (aka United) got me on Lufthansa first class amongst a few other options. I spent 100k miles for a...

It's domestic first class. You're mistaking it for international. There's a reason why AS's first class is actually affordable and I'm guessing it's why you purchased the product. It has never...

Is it just me or are Alaska Airlines miles completely worthless

I'm on vacation number 4 now without being able to book a single flight with my Alaska points. Tried going to Europe. Even with the slew of partners they have, calling multiple times, etc, I ended...

It's not award availability. That's what I was trying to book in the first place. It seems like its another bug in AS's system. It seems to allow overbooking of the first cabin.

Does the golden U by a fare mean you get upgraded right away as a Gold+

I just booked a fare that has the yellow/gold U next to it. I'm gold. The fare when you hover over the U says that MVPG can get upgraded immediately after purchase.

I'm looking at options in getting back from MCO. AS has two direct flights. I've looked at booking with cash, miles or a mix of both. One flight is in the morning and one is in the evening.
