What is the United policy as it relates to earning PQD when a partner airline reissues your ticket on the partner inventory? My trip from SFO-IAH-LIM-CUZ and back was purchased as a United ticket. The LIM-CUZ-LIM had a schedule change and the partner airline contacted me and then reissued the tickets on their inventory. United is saying that because I "exchanged unused tickets" and they are now the partner tickets and the LIM-CUZ-LIM portions shouldn't count for PQD. The partner airline sent me an updated itenery with the United ticket numbers on the bottom and then United sent me a receipt with "INVOLV REROUTE" on the receipt with the new partner airlines ticket number. United has said they will issue me a "one time exception" for this and credit the PQD's as well as issue me a $150 travel voucher. I will most likely accept their "generous" offer, but I wanted to know what rights as a passenger I have in such a situation. Any insight or advice is most appreciated.
