    Randy, In Inside Flyer you mention (if I understand it correctly) that CO will match your status with UA and vice versa. I'm Premier Executive with UA and squat with CO and would like to get Gold with CO as a match for my Gold with UA, but I can't figure out how to do it. On the CO's site, status matches seem to require additional flights on CO.

    How do I get a status match based on the merger? Or has that been discontinued?

    Thanks for any information or suggestions you can provide.

    Thanks, violist, but it doesn't seem to work for me.

    When I try, I get an error message as follows:

    So I check it (I had put it in correctly), but tried it both with and without the "WP" letters in front of the number and it still didn't work.

    Biggest problem was that the machine wouldn't take my entire OnePass PIN; it apparently has space for only 4 alphanumerics, and my PIN is longer than that.

    Any suggestions?

    Sorry: I used the whole CO number, AAnnnnnn; luckily my PIN is
    only 4 digits, so I didn't encounter the problem.

    I'll try to change my PIN to four digits and see if that works.

    Thanks, violist!

    How about the other way, I am Platinum OnePass and would like to get similar level with United.

    Welcome to MP.

    It should work in reverse also.

    I am registered now but there was no information about becoming United elite 1K. I am not sure what to expect now. Will I be contacted by United Mileage Plus? Should there have been more steps or info online? I guess I am confused.
    Thanks.

    If you're Plat with CO but have flown less than 100K status miles, this might not be enough to match to 1K on UA. The problem is that CO's Plat is 75K and UA has no status level here, only 1K at 100K status miles. At lower tiers, this isn't a problem, as UA 2P or CO Silver are both 25K status miles and UA 1P and CO Gold are both 50K status miles. I know there's been some discussion about 100K Plats with CO and SWUs, but I don't remember the details of exactly how they're reconciling the levels in the status match. Sorry I can't be more helpful on this, but you should look in the UA forum for information or pose a very specific question either there or in the Newbies forum where more UA/CO experts are likely to see it.
