As a GS last year my CPU upgrade percentage was 30%. As a 1K this year it is zero.

This is why I'm not GS any longer.

I don't have any issue with United selling First instead of upgrading us,...

I'm not sure how you can say that.

How would a normal person interpret this sentence "United may, among other things, withdraw, limit, modify or cancel any award" ?? I suspect they would not...

I guess you are saying a company can have any terms as long as they document them.

I have a big problem with these terms. I pre-paid for the room with points. I fully understand that if I cancel...

Maybe I don't know how to use this forum but where did the original thread go? It just says moved.

You guys lost me with Elevated Returns. They are involved with selling the St. Regis but my experiences weren't at that hotel. I've had this same issue with other Marriott properties - for...

This thread is too long to read everything but I think a class action lawsuit would be appropriate here. Yes, they can set the T&Cs to anything they want but I don't think a jury would agree that is...

Last year I spent $66K on 100% Y trips. For example, a one-way from NRT to DEN is around $4K.

They can't push through a CPU any longer but can usually push through a Regional if you use one.

I do this a lot for my kids and normally they are prioritized after all other GS fliers but ahead of others.

I'm sure if enough people write in they might pay attention but I suspect it will have minimal affect. They are using analytics on passenger revenue to drive all decisions. Unless the PRASM of GS...

I have no issue with reducing the number of 1Ks since there are too many (easy for me to say of course since I'm 1K for life). Even as GS, I rarely get upgraded, even when using a RPU on a full Y...
