Despite all of the justifiable UA grumpiness that we've been spouting here in recent months, I just had a couple of happy moments with UA. Perhaps I should try to celebrate those... Rewards Plus, the Marriott partnership announced in December. Thanks to UA, I have Marriott Rewards Gold status. I just stayed at an overseas Marriott property that would have charged me ~$27/day for net. Instead, I got free net and access to a pleasant club lounge that included a (limited) open bar, a diverse evening appetizer collection, and breakfast. Catering upgrades. On a short transatlantic hop in C, the menu had four entree choice, portions were large, and they served ice cream with full sundae toppings. I compare this to five years ago when three choices were standard, I may have even seen only two choices, and portions were not satisfying. Have you had any happy UA moments recently?
