Does anybody have an idea when the new united elite cards for 2012 will mailed out
Rumor has it that it might be a while.
sometime 2nd quarter I do believe.......
expect to get a sharp looking elite sticker....
I'm excited for some fancy shmacy sticker to be put across my 2011 Card...
hopefully it has a 3d hologram. they're the nicest....
The likes of Lufthansa will expect it to be so authentic so I guess a 3d hologram is the least UACO can do for their "screw up".
Actually, I think 3D Globe will look nice.
Well, I just printed my Presidential Platinum card...
that was right after that million dollar bill you made for that guy right?
Sent from my iPad using milepoint app
Do you think it will help for international Star lounge access?
If 2012 is anything like 2011 (and I expect it to be worse), I will get it in July.
I imagine it will be awhile given the issues in merging CO & UA accounts.
Disaster UA/CO I guess we can just use the recently printed PPlatinum cards beats a sticker
I would assume that if there is trouble using our *G card to access lounges other than UA/CO and since that is a feature of obtaining 1K then in some way we will/should be compensated for the lack of use. It's really not our problem if UA can't ge their act together. How did NW/DL do it without problems?
Since UA presumably considers all *A lounges to be equal, the cost of a UA one-time pass ($50) would seem fair compensation. Maybe we could create a standardized official-looking form to be presented to the lounge guard who rejects the stickered UA card and ask them to check off the reason for denial. Submit the form to UA wit request for compensation
Fortunately it looks like I may only have one or two trips with sticker card.
Good idea, but so many languages for us to write the form in, after all not all of the locations and lounge guards speak fluent English. A one time pass times the number of times you are rejected, would be a better compensation, or maybe just 10,000 miles per rejection
dont hold you're breath waiting for lounge entry denial compensation........
I used a color laser to print mine then overlaid it on the old card, fresh shiny, glossy, new!
Good thing my actual lounge card is good for another 7 months
I spewed my strawberries all over my computer screen when I read this!
Asked the agent in the LX lounge in ZRH a couple days ago if she heard anything about UA/CO not having our cards ready and if this is going to be an issue Feb 1. She just stared at me with her mouth open for a minute and then said she had no idea what I'm talking about (not a big surprise as I wouldn't think UA/CO would have sent out notices yet).
So I expalined the situation and then asked what she thought was the best solution. She said for me just to bring a printout of my 2012 *G (on paper, no smart phone app page) status from UA/CO with my BP and that should be good enough to get in.
So, I have one data point with one agent so far
I expect them to just recognize me.
If a temporary sticker is truly THAT troublesome, remember you always have choices in airlines.
Captain Oveur, I like your posts, but man, your profile picture just freaks me out
