    Greetings GOLD level members of Milepoint. As one of your benefits for contributions to Milepoint, you have early access to my personal flight benefits—as in "sponsoring an upgrade". I have available only to current GOLD members of Milepoint, one of my 6 SWU's that expire at the end of this month. So, if you have a long flight and are flying by month's end, and you know the rules of booking with an SWU. then start a "Conversation" with me and we'll discuss how I'll transfer to your confirmation number. I'd like to see 6 different GOLD members of Milepoint enjoy a single long segment of upgrade courtesy of ... Me & Milepoint or is it Milepoint & !?.

    As a refresher (some of you will have this memorized), here are the booking code restrictions:

    To any United or United Express destination around the globe:
    In the continental U.S., Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, Caribbean, Central America and Mexico(Region 1)
    South America, Europe, North and South Asia, Japan and Australia (Region 2)

    b) To be eligible, you must have a paid ticket in one of the following booking codes:
    For travel in Region 1: Economy class booking codes Y, B, E, M, U, H, Q, V, W, S, T, K, L and G, and business class booking codes C,D and J.
    For travel in Region 2: Economy class booking codes Y, B, E, M, U, H, Q, V and W, and business class booking codes C, D and J.

    First one "sponsored": HKG-ORD-BOS / departing Sunday

    As always Randy, your generosity is amazing. I am sure you will find a grateful recipient for the SWUs. I just got my latest bundle so do not need them personally, but am sure they will find a happy home!

    Oh, if only my segments had R space available.

    Edit: If you get no takers on an international segment, I've got an AUS-IAD segment on Sunday that is upgradable via SWU. :)

    Similar for me. I have one UA segment this month to finish my A3 *Gold, but it's already booked into FC on a very cheap A fare. Sigh?

    Indeed... I've never used the "#firstworldproblems" hashtag, but it seems quite appropriate at this time. "Oh damn, I missed on an SWU because I'm flying First. GRRRR!"

    I have two AA Admirals club passes I'll throw in. I'll give them to the two SWU recipients with the longest travels and access (terminal logistics since flying UA) to an Admirals club. :)
    Randy can let me know who this would be, I'll 'converse' them for a mailing address.

    Although not MP Gold, I wanted to say how generous an offer this is. (I've already been a great beneficiary of Randy's largesse, and am happy to be part of this community.)

    I could throw in a couple of stretched-out-of-shape flight masks I have from a few years ago. Bueller? Anyone?

    Seriously, I hope some day to be in a position to benefit from this kind of community-minded kindness.

    Very generous Randy!
    [and the answer to your question is ... courtesy of me & Milepoint -- the determining factor is the preposition which makes the pronoun (me) the object of the preposition (of)] :)

    Wow Randy -- it's wonderful that you can offer such a valuable commodity!:cool:
    I'm sure your gesture will 'encourage' MPers with less-than-gold status here -- to strive to attain Gold!;)

    Very generous of you. Sadly I'm not gold, one month too early, and inelligable Region 2 fare class causing me to strike out on this.

    Randy, you are always very generous.

    I have no UA flight in this month, however I and my +1 have 9 SFO-ORD-SFO AA (Used to be dAArk), if any of MP who want to upgrade us it will be great! :)

    Happy New Year!
