Hi all, Quick clarification question. In late Feb, we're on an award ticket in Y (X fare) back from MUC to EWR, operated by PMCO. (Penultimate leg of a long, complex itinerary.) My wife and I are Silver Elite on UA/CO. Online, the system is trying to charge me $89 for Economy Plus seating. So I called the agent and she said that I'd only be able to select Economy Plus at time of check-in (24hrs out). She mentioned a "transition period." I know those are the new rules under the 2012 MP rules, but we're supposed to operate under 2011 rules until March 2, no? Under the 2011 rules, as Silvers we should be able to get Economy Plus at booking, per the FAQ at CO.com (and the MP Wiki). Is there some interim system by which some 2012 rules are going into place piecemeal?
