Does the MileagePlus Explorer card let me to pre-board before Group 1? I got it a couple weeks ago but I am still always in group 2 on my boarding pass

You can actually board before Global Services, generally while the previous flight is deplaning

No, it gives you group 2

No it gives you group 2 Grip 1 is platinum and 1K GS goes before them Even my lifetime gold only gives group 2 if I dont qualify for higher. To much rif raf with priority boarding already. Freaking 1K line for check in in Dublin last Sat was 23 people for Christ sake

Thanks Dick

Mangement?

Haha. Nope. Group 2 is Explorer card. Group 1 is Platinum (I think - I'm 1k and know I didn't get it at Gold.) And Global is for God. They'd get crucified by their frequent flyers. Bad enough that businesses can use Explorer card for their payables and balding guy in the Salvatore Ferraro's gets the 1st class to Singapore using miles over your global certificate upgrade.

I think the only ones that get to board before GS are the crew and military passengers. After that it's GS, pre-boards, then Group 1 onwards.

Only people that can board before me (Global Services) are military, disabled, and small children. Then it goes onto group 1, then group 2 including mileage plus cardholders.

It's a fair question. Chase markets the card as priority boarding, and I've seen plenty of newbies confused by the language

2 is priority, 70% of time group 2 can get a bag in the overhead. 3, 4, 5 it's fun tossed people's hopes and dreams get crushed
