    Well even with all the rumors today about next years MP, something good did happen for me, I got my 6 SWUs deposited and my additional 2 regionals.

    Question - the SWUs expire 8/31/12, does this simply mean I can't redeem them after that date or does it mean I can't apply it to a reservation made prior for a later date, say 10/1/12?

    Thanks all!

    They cannot be used on flight segments departing after 8/31/2012.

    Note that many people who e-mailed United about this change (SWUs have not always deposited immediately) were told that around 12/2011 or 1/2012, you'll be able to write in and ask for your SWUs to be extended until 12/2012 or 1/2013. If you manage to get your SWUs extended, then they'll have to be used on travel dates before the new expiration date.

    Mherdeg, thanks for the info.

    Hopefully they'll let me extend them as well.

    I will most certainly though be actively trying to use them.

    I've already used one regional and have used on SWU on CO ewr-hnl business first route -- of course that one I am waitlisted :(

    Also another quick question, I noticed a post not so long ago that UA folks can use regionals on CO metal.

    How about CO regionals on UA metal, I have two return flights on a co resv that are on UA metal but the upgrade reservation just says online upgrade unavailable.

    I assume I have to call CO or UA?

    Thanks all!
