Maybe the UA lurkers on the board should have one quick thread to see what they are losing daily? Please, no discussions, just routes, amounts, and who got it.

Today I bought:
BKK-NRT-DFW-MCI, 1400 USD. AA ( all AA legs into C using SWU on S fare)

You lost 1750 today from this ex 1K.

...been cold turkey on revenue tickets on UA since Feb. Booked $4K solely on AA for a few transcons in May, June. Loving my 100% upgrade rate since EXP match.

Out with SMI/J and the CFO at a minimum, ASAP.

9 tickets for a group of us going to Munich. I hung up after 47 minutes, as I guess I was overentitled to get answered in under an hour. I booked on AA and didnt even have to beg for the 9 of us to sit together

After my status match to AA Plat (got in before they limited to 1K and GS) a few weeks ago booked ~$600 in a couple of domestic flights and bought 2 500-miles upgrades for one of the flights ($60) that cleared in my window not at airport (wanted to sit with folks booked on award in F, otherwise my aisle exit row is just fine!). Small potatoes, I know, but spend on UA is $0 this year. Not much flying so far, but any I do will be on AA or "other".

~$4000 for 2x IAH>LHR in Business on AA. Still booking a lot on UA though (but praying Southwest gets cleared to do internationals out of Houston).
