    It was a post about being invited back to the Global Services perks of UA for the second year in a row (if memory serves me well prior to the edit).

    It was but I removed the post, as I didn't want anyone thinking I was showboating

    Just letting folks know some of the decisions within United are being made already

    Just for you, they're deploying a limited version of PQD early. ;)

    Congrats on being Globally Served yet again next year.

    Or is that Globally Over-Served (as long as you're in at least J, since apparently there's no free plonk in whY anymore)?

    Congrats! Based on all your posts you clearly fly (more than) enough to earn GS - hope 2014 is even better... like more mainline and less UAX :)

    Don't worry. I want to express my sympathy. I can only imagine the hardship involved in reaching that level ;)

    Right now I'm sitting at 215,734 PQM on 194.5 PQS (yesterday's LAX-IAH-EWR hasn't credited yet and I'm flying BDL-ORD-CAE; CAE-ORD-BDL next week). That's on nearly all domestic travel (ORD-NRT-LAX & IAH-GIG-GRU-EWR were my only intl. segments this year) and mostly in high fare buckets. I think my total spend is somewhere north of $40K - $45K yet GS status continues to elude me.

    Maybe if Santa is watching this thread, he can pull some strings??

    Apparently the first batch of GS invitations were sent out around Dec 20.

    I am pleased and surprised to report at just short of 6000 PQMs and 900 dollars I was NOT invited to be GS. Shocking. :p :p

    I have a feeling I'll be denied yet again....I don't book intl. F tickets and it seems like everyone I know who's GS does that (even though I fly way more and spend more than some of them....ugh).

    I suspect if you flew way less than them and still spent more than them, it would increase the odds of you receiving GS. Flying way more dilutes your revenue per mile.

    A lot of my flights are less than 500 miles and probably more than 2/3 of them are less than 1000 miles yet I've been paying around $1000 for a lot of those tickets. There are quite a flew trips where I've paid more than $1.00 per mile. Last week, I paid over $1600 for EWR-DTW; DTW-ORD-SFO-LAX; LAX-IAH-EWR. This week, it's almost $700 for BDL-ORD-CAE; CAE-ORD-BDL. United is more than getting it's money's worth out of me even without the $10,000 F tickets.

    We are the same. Most of our flights are PHX - LAX - SFO, and back, but then we do 3 - 4 international flights per year, and a few are really long-haul, like F to/from SYD. Just not enough spending I guess.

    Had to book LHR for April, before Jan. 01, so we will loose out on the new PQD's for 2014 in those flights. Oh well, such is life, and we will get by as lowly 1K's, with no GS status in sight. In 2013, our PQD's would have been US $58K per each, but still not enough. [Sigh]

    At least we are home for the rest of 2013, and no flights in 2014, until mid-Jan. Sleeping in one's own bed, for more than three nights in a row, is highly underrated.

    PQDs are accrued at the time of travel, not of purchase. Your trip in April will earn PQDs in 2014.

    As one of the people who largely self pay for travel, your company paid for your tickets.

    Sent from a reasonably priced car.

    I don't dispute that at all...but I do have complete choice in who I fly & choose to give United my business.

    I hit 1K for the first time this year (after a long time). At 115k PQM, I am not expecting a GS invite. It was almost all B-fare travel though. I need calculate how much I spent, but any idea what the GS threshold for an invite is? Would a $30k spend in Y get a GS invite?

    I believe it's $50k these days for GS consideration.
