    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".

    I imagine it will be awhile given the issues in merging CO & UA accounts.

    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

    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 :D

    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:)

    If a temporary sticker is truly THAT troublesome, remember you always have choices in airlines.
