Does anyone actually get complimentary upgrades due to United status? I just hit gold and so far it seems like a hoax.

You do. But keep in mind that if you are doing busy routes, Gold doesn't get you that far. But if you are taking some off the beaten path routes/times you might get upgraded

I’ve been upgraded twice on a leg from ewr to houston. Gold 10 months. Think it really depends on the flight routes

Is Gold even a priority status? 1K or Global Services bro.

Been off of FB for a while, so apologies if this has been discussed at length - feel free to point me to a thread. Wondering the speculation on travel for consulting given the pandemic/WFH normalizing/etc? Is the assumption it will return to like before (3/4/5 weekly etc) or do you all anticipate more work from home and distance work?

Seeking immigration / travel advise. I know we are not lawyers but any experiences / stories would be helpful.

Do I tell them about switching jobs, etc.? My new company lawyers are not providing clear guidance on this and suggesting against travel due to COVID in general. Thank you.

United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
