    So I status-matched from UA 1K to CO Plat with plans to book a hard-to-find award, capturing extra Plat saver award inventory. What d'ya know, CO doesn't seem to allow one way awards even on their own metal. So I have a few questions:
    • Does CO plan to offer one-way awards on CO prior to full merger - if so, when?
    • How much extra award inventory really is offered to Plats on midcons or transcons, and does it tend to come up just a few days before the flight? I find extra 1K award inventory on UA to be very modest except for shorter flights.
    • Did I hear the extra Plat award inventory is just in first class, not coach?
    Thanks....
