I’ve got the same question. Can I call United and have them merge?

If you have status you can choose to upgrade your companion .. does not have to be on same reservation. That was the case when I last flew over a year ago.

I think we are interested in the extra leg room seating perk. Not necessarily using plus points for first upgrade

If it’s long haul international you know they don’t do free / automatic upgrades like they do for domestic / short international flights

If you mean for complimentary upgrade by availability, then yes. You have to be on the same reservation for both of you to be automatically queued up. If different reservations, you can call United to add that person as your companion

If you have status, then the other person on the reservation will be eligible for a complimentary upgrade based on your status

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....

Thoughts on accepting an offer knowing the possibility that you might decline their offer during the background check process? Is this ok? I have an offer, but im only given a few days to decide, but I am interviewing for another 2 companies that are a bit slow and I might get an offer from 1 or both of them before the end of this month. The 2 slower companies are my preference over the 1 that I have an offer for. Thoughts on how to navigate this?
