earning PQM on a Regional Upgrade
 
I used a regional upgrade to get into F on a W fare to LAS. When I look at my account it credited me 150% (like I bought a F ticket) elite miles. Is this an error or do SWU and RU count as if you bought the ticket in an F fare?

Thanks!

Error. It might get fixed, it might not. But lots of things are still posting wrong right now.

Be glad. I got zero PQM because of these glitches with upgrade fare buckets (S and K --> ON). I'm sure it will get fixed now that I have emailed them, but I would rather have your problem!

Everytime I get upgraded, I get 150% Elite "posting" but no PQM toward 2012 Elite Qual and Lifetime! Happens every time. It's like thes system thinks I paid for FC and used a freebie reward... I notified UA MP over, and over, and over... and no progress or response on the issue. Dont expect it to "fix itself"... In fact, I was told by an MP supervisor that they are very hard to fix and takes alot of red tape... He told me, "this is a first I have seen.." Really? What? I seriously doubt it. Very, very frustrating! I sent an email to UA Insider and PM'ed her too with a "use case" to review. I really hope they figure this one out because it happens every flight. Please join me in escalating this issue so it gets resolved and we can stop worrying about it ;)

Lovely. Considering that I have about 20 upcoming itins like this, I am not too happy to hear this.

I am showing the same 150% PQM bonus on all of my upgraded flights that used GPU.... agree it's a great problem and I hope it does not get corrected. We will see.

my PMCO flights CPU'd show as Z and credited as such, both RDM + PQMs. i imagine that ultimately all the CoS bonuses i've been getting will go away eventually.

i'm also still getting the 25% PPlus RDM bonus, not just on PMCO, but now the PMUA too! i'm wondering if the latter occurred b/c those segs were 005 ticketed.

I don't think 005 ticket matters, because I never got PPlus bonus on UA metal even when I booked on co.com pre-3/3. I guess this is one of the few glitches that work in favor of us (but apparently a short-lived one:().

Were these upgraded pre or post 3/3? And have you flown it or is that just what it is showing on the reservations page? I have found the PQMs listed on the reservations page to not be very accurate in the CO system before 3/3. When a B was upgraded at time of booking, it changed the PQM from 150% to 100%.

I had one that was upgraded pre 3/3 on a CO ticket and was awarded as a Z fare. (Shhh, don't tell anyone.)

I had a UA B fare upgraded and when it was moved into SHARES it when in as ON, which has been well documented as not posting and will receive a systematic fix in the near future.

This was Post 3/3. I have actually flown the flights. It has added the 150% to my Lifetime miles too. The computer thinks its a Z fare on both flights. Hope they dont fix it :)
