    Not at all surprising. If I were the SMI/J, I'd create a plan that had all the worst things combined, leak it, and see what they complained about much. Notice no one really complains about the 75K tier or the names. I'm sure that's staying. No one complains about paying outright for status ($20K for Diamond), so that probably stays, too. But people really have an issue with the spend thresholds in addition to EQM. Maybe UA will listen. We can't be sure, but since that's one of the biggest complaints, now UA knows what some people value most. If they were to just create a poll asking what's important, people would check everything.
