if a GS applies PlusPoints for an upgrade and is waitlisted, but then drops from GS to 1K before the upgrade clears, would the upgrade now need PZ space to clear, or would it still clear into PN...

Thanks to a segment run on Dec 26th, I earned a ‘bonus GPU’ on my final flight of 2019 (MSP-ORD on Dec 27th) by cracking 150 PQS for the first time ever:

PQM = 113,498
PQS = 150.5
PQD = $21,543

I was recently in a similar situation, and decided to pay $239 to do a gratuitous MSP-ORD-MSP turn on Boxing Day in order to get 2 more PQS and thereby get an extra 40 PP. I thought it was a really...

I am a regular at the MSP UC, so much so that I actually got a Christmas card in the mail this year from the “MSP United Club Team”. For me, the existence of that UC is one of the things keeping me...

I spent a similar amount one year to go from Gold to Platinum, so, yes. I fly a lot of short segments with a rollerboard and being in BG1 instead of BG2 for a full year is worth that much to me. ...

I went ahead and did the segment run, last night — a quick MSP-ORD-MSP turn — $240 and a few hours of my time to earn 40 PP. One more planned segment today (ironically, MSP-ORD) and I will end the...

Would you bother making a segment run?

I've already re-qualified for 1K for next year on segments. I just booked my last planned flights for the year and I'm slated to end up on 148.5 PQS. As such, by making one additional gratuitous...
