I have booked United international flight for my parents as their visa is expiring and they need to leave US this month. They are seniors with health conditions and I am looking for upgrade options. PM me if you can help me to upgrade their flight using United PlusPoints. Thanks!

Just called AA as I was just under the threshold for platinum pro and they made an exception and honored my upgrade. No mileage run, no getting tossed in Mexico jail for a mileage run.

Booked flights for rest of the year and realized I’d be 484 PQM or 1.5 PQS short of United 1K. Changed one set of flights from one to two stops and still 38 PQM or 0.5 PQS short🤦‍♂️ Hacks? Thanks!

Worth it to spend 40mins in the car vs 20 to fly your airline of choice with top tier? Or switch airlines and status match to the closer airline/airport? (1K on UA at EWR 40min vs Delta at LGA 20min)
