You’re probably right saying most don’t know the rules. That vast majority isn’t trying to buy or sell miles, either.

This looks like UA's version of Animal Farm. First, they tell us there's no F any longer and, therefore, what used to be F and C are now all the same. It's just that now, apparently, some seats are...

There has to be more to the story you've been told. Why would someone with roughly 1 million miles be buying more on the black market? The first answer that comes to my mind is he also sells them...

Fly on SQ and get UA miles. Fly on UA and don’t get any miles?

This is an idea bound to fail.

I've seen FAs ask people in exit rows to open the shades for takeoff and landing... many times.

That was speculated from the moment UA announced this pseudo shuttle service. Even when asked this week, the UA rep claimed he didn't know of any linkage between these developments. :rolleyes:

CLE, for an outstation, is rather elite-heavy. It's very common for 10 to 15 or more GS/1Ks to be on morning departures and evening arrivals.

Other than MCO, the Florida flights are not daily though there's a rumor RSW might become so.

I'm not sure ExpressJet will close though I suppose there's a good chance it will. They are flying some E175s based at CLE now, none of which are used for LGA or DCA flights.

UA is worlds better than AC in this regard. They try to turn planes in 30 minutes and often don't have padded schedules to go along with it. That said, UA often schedules boarding for a 739 at T-40...

The other angle about needing to request an upgrade is not everyone wants an automatic upgrade. If you have two or more people traveling together, they may not want to split up.

This doesn't top several already mentioned but yesterday DFW-IAH, a 737-700 (114 Y seats) had 61 on the UG list. The 1K Corral was appropriately named... when they called us it was truly a herd.

I’ve had no access to the transborder Aspire lounge at YYC as a UA *G/UC member, flying F or Y. MLL members apparently have access, though.

If you’re literal in the use of “obtaining status” then UA apparently disagrees. Their prediction is the total number of Premier members will grow, not shrink.
