    Well for those who thought they might have a chance this year... my dad noticed he was instated as UGS sometime in the last day or so. He probably did nearly 100K+ FF BIS on UA this year. Glad to be his MM companion :)

    It's not really just the BIS flown but the revenue provided. If he flew 100k BIS on expensive fares then that would make sense but if he bought the cheapest fares then it does not.

    Anyone know how/when you find out if you did not get it? This was my first year as GS and I travelled a couple fewer international business trips. I noticed the upgrade to GS this time last year when I logged into UA online, just not sure how I'd see a downgrade since status technically lasts until 1/31/13.

    I meant FF to be full fare, sorry for the confusion. He passed 100K PQM status much earlier in the year.

    Is there any sort of notification or they just change 1K to UGS on the "My Account" landing page?

    You get a call from Chuck Norris who tells you "I am Global. I am Service. You are Global Services" and then hangs up.

    Last year it just popped up on my login screen "global services" and I started getting the benefits in mid-December. But since you keep benefits until 1/31 I'm curious how they handle a downgrade. Customer service said they "don't start looking at it until January". So maybe last year was unique, but per this thread, it wouldn't seem to be.
