So you don't think a Diamond Medallion on Delta is not treated better than a non-status person who buys the same ticket class/fare? Or the American/Lufthansa/Singapore equivalent? Someone mentioned...

Haven't you ever seen a metal do-nut? It probably more than fulfils your RDA of iron.

I was speaking as if I were the person not flying enough to reach top-tier status, as I allude to later in the response. Sorry if offence was taken.

Basically, if I was a non-top tier elite w/...

Both. I expect a GS to be treated better than me. They are worth a lot more to UA than I am. When I'm Gold, I'll expect to see Plats, 1Ks and GSs treated better than me because they are worth more to...

If there's 18 bags between pre-boarding F and BG1 F and room for 16, 2 are going to be heading backward. I guess this is an example of UA giving preference to its top-tier elites in F. GS who's spent...

So the GS and 1Ks who pre-boarded and sat in F filled the bins? Is there a possibility the pre-boarders who sat in F might have had too many items, or crew used some of the space? Or are you saying...

Again, you don't understand what is going on. United has decided it wants to treat its top-tier elites a little better than everyone else. It's not a matter of bin space. It's sort of interesting...

Currently, people upgraded prior to check in do nor show up as upgraded. 4 people may have had J tickets, but no seats until they moved people up front prior to departure. If the business cabin seat...

I wish FT allowed videos. I guess one would have to blur the horses' faces. I guess the BPs still say BG1, so their assumption re boarding (as they seemingly ignored their e-mail about the new...

Yesterday I checked a load on a flight and found R=5 w/ my RPU or GPU request still waitlisted. Called and got the upgrade and saw R go to 4. This morning R was 0 with no more seats claimed. I'll...

Out of SFO? Well, if DL covers your flying (which must not be extensive enough to benefit from UA's network/schedule out of SFO), go for it. Another airline might be warranted if a couple of people...

Well, at United, you have no say what group you're in. Western allows some buy up in the boarding sequence. Don't give United ideas about selling boarding placement. I think Western sort of takes...

You sleep thru safety demonstration and take-off? You can't recline or go lie-flat. I don't think I've ever seen anyone asleep though these.

That could be solved (in cases of wide-bodies, 2 jetways, 2 scanners) Polaris thru one scanner, everyone else thru 2nd. Modify sequence to allow Polaris boarding for applicable gates/aircraft. Big...

w/o having to pre-board credit card holders, the boarding structure would be a lot easier to design (albeit, still with the unavoidable whining). I think a lot of people see the logic in the...

The occasional F pax is still in BG1. Not BG2. Not BG3. Not BG4. Not BG5. They still get the seat/meal they paid for. They still get an orange tag on their bag.

Yeah - UA is stuck with designing a priority boarding sequence that includes people who shouldn't be promised priority boarding. Sure, give 'em a free bag and Premier Access at security. Neither...

A few 1Ks who arenít in First will board ahead of you and head back to economy. I canít believe this horrible treatment you must be suffering.

Yup - Golds are Group 1 now. I'm certainly not going to discount UA changing the groups again before the time I sink to Gold (to my detriment). It is what it is, and what it will be...

The 1K has demonstrated continuing current value to UA.
"Lifetime spend"? Funny. UA is looking for current and continuing value. If you die after flying 5 million miles with United, they're not...

There's absolutely no reason for 1Ks to pre-board even with carry-ons. There's zero chance of no overhead space even at the end of BG1. The hysteria of "no overhead space" by the end of BG1 is just...

Well, you can say you were the only 1K (or one of 4) who pre-boarded, not that there were only one (or 4) 1K on each of the flights. Some, like me, donít necessarily board at a certain time as if it...

Yeah. The bag issue w/ the new procedure is a manufactured "problem". I'll still be boarding at end of BG1 if I'm in F or Y with a carry-on.
