any way to expedite / customize the status match challenger?

I am doing a somewhat last minute biz class refundable ORD-GRU round trip. I used to be 1k and GS, but years ago. Now I am a nobody and have Gold on AA (Platinum until two weeks ago). I filled out...

OP says, "Well, I stirred it up!"

Clearly this merger is evoking a lot of strong emotion. To those who attempted to provide guidance about my questions on AA, thank you. It was what I was looking for. To those who criticized me...

fly 861 IAD-GRU. How often is it the new cabin?

I am trying to decide whether to hold out for business in the old cabin from ORD-GRU, or connect via IAD, as I have heard they are running the new cabin on that route sometimes. Anyone have a feel...

Well done, in_27D. I considered catching that earlier flight from IAD-ORD, but would have had to give up my 1st class seat. Instead, I relaxed a bit and caught another 60 minutes of shuteye on the...

I believe they didn't have a part in GRU hence the decision. Everyone had to go to IAD. From there I believe many were re-booked on a more efficient connection if there was one.

update: no joy -- kicked out of GS but thankful for a soft landing to 1k

I got a letter the other day informing me that my golden days of UGS are over (for now) but that I was granted a soft landing to 1k despite flying 75k eqms. Beats a poke in the eye. And, UA was...

first time in the new cabin (both F and C)

I must say, I was very satisfied. I just did a quick trip on UA 895 (ORD-HKG-SIN) and UA 896 (SIN-HKG-ORD).

On the outbound it was old config to HKG but thankfully my SWU cleared so I laid flat...
