I made it back after a few years away (new job, covid, etc). EWR based, 50.3k PQP and 28 PQF. Mostly business class to Europe, often short notice.

Will likely have an additional flight to EU in early January. All flights from SFO. 46K PQP but that will go up to about 49k once I fly home from EU tomorrow. Looks like I wont hear until January as I am not GS this year. Do you think I will qualify in January with evidence of bounce back at end of year (5 international business class trips)? I dont know how to calculate CPM.

Just checked my account and am GS again! Companion too as I got million miler status last month.

Just checked and no change so far. 1K since 2018. over $60k net UA spend ($68k total), but ~ $0.32 CPM. Going to be disappointed if I don't make the cut.

I am wondering if that is enough to make me a GS for 2024, if not, is there anything I can do before the mid of Jan when they announce the newly qualified GS? Tks.
1st time GS half day after I left this message, probably they got a spy here.

Just logged in and I am GS. 1st timer. Fun!

$63.5K PQP, 53 PQF. This includes the 2.5K bonus and some rewards flights and three non-UA metal. Only one economy the rest all Polaris and First mostly one-ways. Very few flights started at a hub. Main start points: Seattle, London, Brisbane, Cancun, Vegas.

So probably $55K from 40ish flights I would guess as the qualification. Also I spent $17K in the last two months of 2022 (and hit 1K) after switching back to UA. So if they look at the last 12-14 months of activity which I have read somewhere then that may also have helped. I also spent $10K+ on my partner's flights through my account which can't have hurt. All up around 75k-80K spend in the last 14 months.

I received a written note of thanks on a flight from MNL-SFO-LHR in mid Dec, thanking me for my loyalty. I broke through 50K PQP on that flight hitting around 57K at that point so it was either for that 50K milestone, or I had made the GS qualification then. Did others get a written note when they went through 50K? Or is it a December thing?

I doubt the flight note was due to any particular threshold. The passenger manifests (and now apps) show who is GS on the flight and depending on various factors the pilot or crew might acknowledge it in various ways. Ive received notes as well but no rhyme or reason

Seem plenty notes from crew/pilots to 1K and GS over the years.

Interesting that new invitations are being done about a week earlier in the month of January than previous years. As we know, late January is a "GS heavy" period as there are both the new GS invitees as well as those whose terms are coming to an end. So this "GS heavy" period is now closer to four weeks than just over two weeks.
