You will see the same message, but both of you will go on the upgrade list. I have had this happen quite a lot.

Hi all, I was Plat through Jan 2020, but purchased the Gold Buy Back for status through Jan 2021. Today my account is showing no status, however. Is anyone else not showing the status they paid for?

For what itís worth, for the past several weeks (maybe longer), it has been possible to book two one way flights within the USA, and in in the middle of those two legs take an intra region trip (in...

I hear what you're saying. This has happened to me too on an instrument-supported itinerary. I think what's happening is when one re-checks-in after performing a SDC, the check-in process at this...

For awhile there, GS booked into PN would clear into other flights with PN available via SDC. That has been closed. This likely will be too.

This is a good move. Generates more revenue (AA will match soon, perhaps DL) and drives more value toward the credit card and the value of status.

A maniacal focus on D0

Just got off a UA flight, and we pushed 10 minutes early. Why not just push back at departure time? In a previous situation, a plane I was on pushed back exactly on time even though quite a few...

I look at this as a solid business move. It adds value to corporate contracts and garners additional revenue from customers that are willing to pay for the seat theyíd like.

CR2s are not ideal. But sub 76 seaters are the only aircraft type United can add at the regional level under current scope agreement clauses. Iím sure theyíd prefer to add 70-76 seaters. These...

Over the past several months, Iíve noticed United is getting its groove back. The operation is running smooth, planes are pushing back on time. Padding the schedules has been reduced. Connectivity at...

I wonder why he wants to go back to JFK. Those transcontinental routes to my understanding arenít the money minters they used to be. Then again he kept First Class on the A321s at AA to my amazement,...

Fun thread. Orange juice or water versus PDB pick. Itís happened quite a lot recently even on domestic flights (I know Polaris had a service change where this is the new norm).

Pre Kirby GS could force it. Not any longer. But I agree with Kacee on the point being made about calling to force CPU upgrades. I donít even think the system allows the agents to do that.

I am sensing thread drift. I hope people arenít doing that because that is against policy and is a waste of agentsí time.

This. Iíd add in there the implicit roll of a company to be upfront with itís customers. Perhaps that doesnít matter anymore. If thatís true, thatís a shame.

If that's the case then UA really is changing the rules of the game. That's completely fine and their prerogative -- it's their business after all. Let's remember that United, like AA, also had an...

Is it still the case that out of sync reservations break the CPU system?

I know that SHARES runs these processes as a separate bolt on outside of the PSS, but I'd hope UA has fixed some of the...
