Hello all, I'm was Silver Elite on US Airways, but I just made Gold this past Sunday. This week, on Thursday, I am flying on United. How long before my Gold status filters from US Airways, through Star Alliance, and is recognized by United. I ask since I will be needing to carry some extra baggage and have a companion. As a Silver Alliance Member, it would be 1 free checked bag on United, but with Gold Alliance it's priority access, priority boarding, and 3 bags free. So, it has value for me to see that that Elite status is recognized. Also, booked the ticket through US Airways, so this is a codeshare with United, I don't know if that makes anything like this happen faster or not. Any thoughts? Is there anything that I can do that might help here? Any advantages to going in person to the airport to ensure that status is recognized? Or can the Star Alliance be called? Thanks for any advice.
