    Just curious whether Plats have any extra saver award availability on CO compared to anybody with miles? If so, did I hear that CO will status match from 1K?

    Now, pardon me if I'm way off base here.

    Yes. All Elites get extra economy saver availability. Platinums get extra First/BusinessFirst saver availability on CO Metal (this books into O class)

    additionally, if you have an existing reservation you made before you were a CO plat, you should call and have your onepass number removed and re-applied to the reservation to be sure your new spiffy status applies.

    Supposedly this is not necessary any more but I doubt it hurts to do it anyways.

    you're right.

    in my case, i was waitlisted for award inventory for my folks on a specific travel date...which showed as available to me as a plat, but didn't clear. the agent had to remove and re-apply my onepass number before she was able to clear it.

    Good stuff....now I have to wait for the Plat status to take effect.
    Regarding CO Elite award space on CO, Expert Flyer doesn't show that code, correct? Should I wait to waitlist the space until my OP account registers online as Platinum?

    Do you know if this applies to United 1Ks as well?

    If you match your UA 1K status to CO Plat status then yes.

    Actually EF does show the regular CO award inventory now - fare code X for economy.
