I remember reading somewhere that there is some ultra-elite level above Global Services, but I can't recall what it's called. Is it "Global Elite," maybe?

Do you know? If so you could answer instead of just being a ...

I've heard of Global Services and Global Entry and many times people make mistakes in names so wanted to know what they were referring to. Been with UA for 20 years.

That's not a Global Entry perk?

LOL.
But I'm on a ticket from Japan to LA and then onward to DC. I must be a Global flyer! So "Global Services" must apply to me, right?!

Embarrassing to admit it, but when I first got involved in frequent flying, this is exactly what I thought.

Thankfully, a patient and kind GA gave me the scoop.

Everyone is a noob at some point.

I think it's called Chairman's (Something).

I still maintain my view that Global Services sounds like a product/division of FedEx or UPS.

Are you thinking of Chairman's Circle?

Agree that it is a bureaucratic sounding name but it's no more strange than "1K." And, yes, I know the history of the 1K moniker.

That would be Hertz or (RIP) USeless Air, perhaps a LH/LX tier.

Global Services means self loading cargo on international routes.
