Again, that assumes that FT population reflects the overall distribution of frequent flyer demographics. I do not believe such correlation is necessarily the case.

That said, the overall...

Total list that long is not surprising. To address your spot so far down the list, note that any elite Silver and above traveling on Full Fare would be ahead of you in the upgrade list. Travelers...

:confused: CR-1's are notably more valuable now since they are prioritized over CPU at all times.

DL domestically would be great for my travel needs, but this aspect, and the pathetic redemption options in Skypesos are the two reasons I will never switch to Delta. Not only are the SWU's...

With all due respect, I find this a woefully poor argument. You're essentially taking two population tails - one for the least loyal high - fare / low - mileage buyer and one for the most profitable...

As mentioned, all the major carriers in the US have redeyes leaving around the same time. CO should be able to book you on one of their flights.

I'd venture to guess that UA is quite happy that their share of wallet is getting so high that xx% of passengers are flying over 25,000 miles on them a year.

Hahahahah... I wonder when the last delay out of Newark not blamed on weather was.

IRROPS at EWR is disaster. 1k IRROPS treatment was the most important aspect of 1k for me.

A bit early to be discussing IFLs, perhaps, considering the two-class vs. three-class status of the merged carrier is still not decided within the airline?
