If my ORD-LGA Tuesday morning CPU clears in 2 weeks (Im Premier Plat now) then Ill know something has changed. UA currently wants $216 for the UG, which its clearly not worth in my book.

Very few this year with PP

As a 1MM 1K this year so far has been astonishingly sparse. Maybe everyone is burning their Plus Points and planning to abandon ship.

75% (3/4) this year. BWI-ORD and ORD-ABQ inside of 24h as I SDC-ed onto them. ABQ-IAH at the gate. My boss texted me at the bar saying the agent was calling for me. He ended up #2 on the list.

I've also had no CPU notices for many months now.

You can't tell if you're now in F?

I imagine the "no idea how to tell" applied to "T-72" rather than to "CPU'ed".

My company uses a travel agency & concur to book flights. Sometimes if I'm CPU'd T+24 I'll get an email from the agency when it happens alerting me of a seat reassignment, but that doesn't happen 100% of the time. That has always been how I've found out, I never got emails from United.

I've had a delightful mix of occasional emails, occasional texts, and mostly nothing in terms of notifications for the past year... It is part of their surprise and delight strategy I'm sure!

I neglected to post that I received a CPU for UA 263 ABQ-DEN last week Friday. Never got emails or text messages but saw the upgrade in the app while waiting for the much-delayed (regional weather event) inbound flight.

I just got CPU'd LGA-ORD on Monday morning; no email. It's my first CPU in about 6 months.

6 months first CPU and you are 1K, bummer but welcome to my world.

I'm 100% (5/5) this year: LAX-ORD, SFO-ORD, YYC-ORD, ORD-YYC x2.
All cleared between T-96 and T-72.

These will likely be my only CPUs this year since I have PlusPoints applied to all my other reservations.

- 2/22 RDU-ORD E75. Upgrade cleared at T-48 (Gold Window) though with no email
- 2/22 ORD-MSN CR5: Upgrade was held until 15 minutes before boarding. We went out with four empty F seats but I guess they wanted to try and sell this one for $59 right to the last minute

I don't know when you fly but that is pretty incredible given those routes! SFO-ORD I swear I can't even remember my last CPU on that run. LAX - ORD is impressive as well but I take that less often. ORD in and out of YYC is also popular but I have taken that flight in probably 5 years now.

SFO-ORD and LAX-ORD were red eyes (UA2462 and UA660) on Monday nights but I was surprised about how early the CPUs cleared.
YYC<->ORD used to be popular, not sure what's going on these days. Maybe it's just a case of low winter demand.
