Got that on a red eye from Hawaii having to work right after. Left a really good impression of United in me

It was Maui LA indeed

Be afraid

I used to hate United. But then I became silver and they kept upgrading me. I jumped to gold in no time from a fast track they were doing. Now I only fly United for the upgrades lol

I think that’s the catch - if you fly enough to get status beyond the first level, you’re located at or near a hub and there are other elites competing and therefore you get no upgrades. If you’re at a low volume location for United, like Seattle, your odds are much higher, but you probably aren’t flying with them as much to begin with.
