They must be letting FlyerTalk do the editing. Just checked the link and Gold is now Group 1 for boarding, the $5 dollsr comma has been added, and probably some other corrections mentioned.

One more - Silver and Gold get only 1 E+ companion, not 8.

Argumentative, GS is not really a "status".

But I doubt any GS will be confused about their benefits vs. 1K.

Iím pretty sure it has always been 1 economy plus companion for gold and silver since the last change, but I can be mistaken.

UA has never publicly published a set of GS benefits. But at a minimum, they get all 1K benefits plus a number of unpublished benefits.

The site is correct, it states 1 for Silver / Gold E+
but 8 for preferred seating.

1 thing I feel strange is some "preferred seating" is actually E+...

At least this is what I have observed days ago...

This is UA's definition
These standard-legroom seats will typically be closer to the front of the aircraft behind Unitedģ Premium Plus and Economy Plusģ.
What aircraft do you think is mislabeled?

If you're going to try and make fun of United's errors, you should at least be accurate in your corrections... That's only 1024 RPUs for Plat and 2048 for 1K.

Actually only about 363 million GPUs, not even enough for a million upgrades a day.

It will all be fine though because, like the newspaper removal, it is something we asked for!

B772 Version 2 (sCO).

Specifically, I helped 2 Silver on a TPAC reservation. UA was showing E+ seats as preferred seats. Once T-24, I tried to assign E+ to both. But the seat map showed they were already in E+.

FWIW - they don't know how to do OLCI. So unless UA proactively moved Silver to E+, I seriously doubt that I was able to get 2 Silver with E+ before T-24 without payment.
