Back in August 2013, I thought I will be shifting travel to United and requested for a status challenge. I was Delta Silver then and was offered a 90 day Premier® Silver status + challenge. Things did not pan out and I did not take a single UA flight and remained with Delta as well. I am now Delta Gold and this year it feels like I might even reach Delta Platinum for 2015. ON United's website, it states that MileagePlus Premier Status Match Challenge is allowed maximum of one time in a five year period. Given the major changes with Delta, I am looking for an additional option and was wondering if anyone here (or knows of anyone) who had an exception made with regards to the 5 year ruling on MileagePlus Premier Status Match Challenge. I would certainly hope to get a Platinum (or Gold) challenge when my travel plans are more defined but I would like to moderate my hope with feedback from the community. On the other hand, should I even bother if someone knows of something about United backend policy with regards to these challenges.
