Well, not really, but United Airlines is sure trying to give you that impression. Episode 41 is a combination of an episode that we recorded last week, and a second brief recording this morning regarding the new change at United - eliminating the 500 miler requirement for domestic upgrades. In last week's recording we discuss:
- American Airlines double EQM along with the reduced requirement for using E-VIPs for Executive Platinums
- United allowing Z fares to be upgraded with miles next year
- Is Thanksgiving a good time to get bumps?
- Our blog posts on the newly lunched upgrd.com
- and more...
This morning we discussed the new change to UA's upgrade policy and whether or not it changes our airline affiliations.
