As an NY based flyer, I was happy when UA added EWR-CPT. Now, you bet I will be booking it on LH or LX with a 1 stop, as it will give me more PQPs. How does this HELP UA?!

You miss my point. I don't qualify on segments, I qualify based on my spend (18K), and mileage flown (over 150K). With this, I don't make the 54 segments required. However, if I just lived in a...

I don't want a leg UP, I want it to be fair. If you are based from PHL for example, your fares are usually CHEAPER than those from NY, AND you get an extra segment in EACH direction on a trip (to ORD...

But by the same token you penalize those of us who try to fly UA on all our international trips, are based in a hub, and thus wont make the segment limit. You effectively raised my MQD to 24000!!!!!!

I didn't check your math, but you have to figure that if you do this, most likely you never step foot on UA, so what do they care? :-P Their COST to extend you benefits on the few flights where you...

Seriously, I can't see HOW this doesn't bring up the value of segment runs for SOME UA fliers, if they decide to stay with UA. This makes living in NY BAD.

Right. This is what I am saying you win, people like me loose. UA has the right to make this change, I am not complaining about that. My issue is just that I am confused at why they think you have...

By International, I don't always mean TP or TA. It could mean Canada and South America, which when you also eliminate taxes, fees, etc, explains the 18-20K spend.

There are usually always deals to EU at about 2500-3k per flight, sometimes better. As I stated before, even with the spend, I have no idea how I get to segments...and I am a guy that LIKES flying UA...

UA has ALWAYS treated me VERY well with IRROPS, upgrades, etc, even though when I fly internationally I am in paid J (more like P). But as I was making the bulk of my miles with that travel, and thus...

I know a ton of people who do 10 or so international J trips a year, spend about 18K or so, and thus do about 40 segments. This KILLS them. They WERE doing that spending on UA...now, I have no idea...

Even with OPM, I am trying to figure out how I get to the segments. If I stay with UA, this DEFINITELY makes HPN/LGA a benefit, as EWR only flies direct! :-P

Only the cakes are, I was talking about the food. Technically the bread is made off prem too, but all the FOOD (entrees) are made from scratch.

Cheesecake Factory is different than all the others, as they make everything from scratch. There is no freezer to fryer there. This means that you can substitute or add most ANYTHING from any dish.

I've now been on hold over an hour on 2 lines (just to make sure it wasn't a fluke) waiting for Aspire. This is an utter failure.

It just matters if you get the elite team, or if you roll over to the general queue. Unfortunately, I don't think the elite team will be there much longer.

And some of us have UA Club access via another method, and Chase refuses to substitute anything for this benefit or even give it to an AU....so, different strokes for different folks. :-P
