    I submitted a request for a status match about 3 weeks ago. Does it normally take more than 3 weeks for UAL to respond to a request for a status match?

    Does UA currently do status matches? Or just challenges? Or could your request be part of a corporate travel deal?

    The websites states 7 to 14 business days. I applied a few years ago and I think it took about 2 weeks for it to go through. Have you checked your online account to see if it's changed?

    I have checked online and it appears to be the same.

    Response times for emails these days are horrible. If you don't mind waiting then I'm sure they'll get to it eventually. If you want an actual response anytime soon I'd call. Yes, you'll have to wait on hold, but you're much more likely to actually get someone to do something during the call.

    I did a match in December and it took about 3 calander weeks.... My challenge email confirm came through on Christmas Day! I was leaving the next day (so I got credit for my flights, but had already checked in, so missed out on E+ seating on those legs).... It was pretty frustrating on what should be a pretty easy thing to do.
