UA 1K flyer here with a spouse (Premier Executive) who will lose about 25k bonus RDM each year because of this change. Since we are based at SFO, there's no way I am going to move our business to another airline because of this change. Scheduling convenience and availability of non-stop flights is just more important to us. As for the four elite Premier levels, I actually like that change. The step between Premier Executive (50k EQM) and 1K (100k EQM) always seemed too large with not enough incentive to keep sending money UA's way for people who easily surpass 50k EQM but can't reach 100k. My wife might reach the 75k level in some years. Heck, I might in some years in the future fall short of 100k EQM and won't feel so bad anymore. The fee waiver benefits of the 75k Platinum Premier level can be worth quite a bit. Overall, I am pretty happy with the new program, especially since the MM program changes for the first time puts it within my reach when they re-base the UA side on EQMs and then add the CO balance. So far the MM aspect had not entered any of my planning as it seemed goal post at least 5-6 years out in the future.
