Silly perhaps, but I was e-chatting with a friend today, and our conversation got so confusing. In our conversations we use PP for Priority Pass, PP for Passport.... now PlusPoints. Any ideas? Everyone happy with PP? PPx? PPs?

When you receive a receipt for upgrade request, you have paid xxx.yy UGC. So, in UA’s mind, UGC is the same as Plus Points. The two digits accuracy is, however, a little bit puzzling!

So, +P or PPU?
Can a mod add a poll?

So +P is PlusPoints but P+ is Premium Plus?

Good idea but let's see if we get any more suggestions -- say 24 hours.

I think PPU is the better of the two.

+P is a good suggestion but some people will turn it into P+ and then we’ll be thinking they’re asking about Premium Plus. And yes PP is sometimes used to mean Premium Plus but is widely known everywhere for Priority Pass.

“Hi, I booked in E+ and 20 +P have cleared to put me in P+.. If the additional 20 +P don’t clear I’ll be stuck in P+ and need a lounge to use with my PP”.
