Also waiting for PQM bonus to post

Me too. I've been getting the per segment bonuses pretty much as soon as the flight itself posts. I crossed the PQD threshold for the PQM bonus the last week of October but still no PQMs. Am a bit...

Chasing 1K Status for 2016

Two other 1k benefits that I'm not sure plats have: (1) ability to re deposit miles when you cancel award bookings even at last minute. I use this for extended family that often changes plans, has...

United App not showing award availability correctly

There is a Ux flight segment involved. Does the last seat availability not apply to that? I've never run into that before.

United App not showing award availability correctly

Sneak Preview of MileagePlus X – A Powerful New Way to Earn Award Miles

Looks like the app is down right now, hopefully not for long. Fortunately I loaded a $500 card on my amazon account already. When the app goes down it looks like you can't access your stored gift...

At ORD once you are airside you can access all of Terminals 1 through 3, not just Terminal 3. However, it is a long walk from the L concourse to Terminal 1 where the UC's are located. Probably...

try Windsor as an alternative to DTW

Last summer I had to fly my son to BCN from Southeastern Michigan. DTW fares were high, ORD was only a little better. But Windsor, a tiny airport maybe 15 minutes from the Detroit border crossings,...

If you sponsor her for an award using your miles, I believe your status governs the upgrade request. For LHR flights that might not be high enough to matter unless demand is low.

round trip now required for discount fare buckets LAX to ORD?

Yes we do that with MKE now and then but need to check bags on this one. I'm just concerned hat the lack of airline competition is taking away reasonable one way fares. A lot less flexibility.

round trip now required for discount fare buckets LAX to ORD?

Possibly since a one way doesn't involve a stay. This route has not seen that in part because Virgin and Southwest fly it (Southwest to MDW). Spirit flies it too but they don't matter. I've got an...

Why are not discount fares avialable for domestic OWs when they are for RTs?

In searching LAX to ORD one way over past few days have noticed that a very high E fare comes up as lowest ($534) for every day in mid-January. If you change it to a round trip various discount...

AA better airline but program cuts make them lag behind UA for now

The lack of a program announcement AND more importantly the cuts announced to redemptions without warning earlier this year have caused me to entirely avoid AA this year. I have no elite miles on AA...

Stranded in MSN - please advise

Booking pairs of family members on diff. itineraries?

I would book them all as one way, pairing with the kid who is with you. If you swap kids you might get tripped when TSA asks the kid what her name is, and you don't necessarily want to coach them to...
