Yeah, apologists say what you want- but to me the "new" UA deal for elites is worse. I'm gonna wait and see on my approach a bit, I know UAInsiderShannon said they had problems with the auto upgrade deal this week, and as it runs out its course of the update, they anticipate by flights after 3/9 it will be running as intended...so...it will be interesting to see how this all plays out. I had a flight Thursday, I'm not even on the list anywhere. Same with Friday. So obviously somehow the previously issued tickets didnt make it into the system for UDU somehow. Not only did I not get anything upgraded, as a 1K I'm not even ON THE LIST lol!
