Lol no. 1k means nothing

Correct D2

Nope

Hell no.

$ to burn? Go for it. Otherwise, annual fee for Amex black card is probably a better value.

6 GPUs worth a lot more Han $3K. If you have the extra cash and plan in traveling abroad, then yes.

I fly a lot to Europe so 6 gpu is worth it alone. Plus regionals coast to coast are nice as well. How do you buy it?

I hope you use those GPUs on Lufthansa or Air Canada. I wouldn't waste them on United's shitty biz class product (yes, I know, Polaris blah blah blah...).

Those GPUs really suck. They are not usable on any flight. Beware the small print !

Hmmm. Leaning to NO. But yea, would use them on LH.

EY2 Yes I use them on LH. Don't believe you can on AC also I prefer United's new business to AC believe it or not.

AP1 that's y you call nice customer service for 1k and they book appropriate ticket class for you. Worked every single time for me - my third year of being 1k
