I'm hearing some intriguing reports from lower-tier MP members who got gifts from UA this year, and I'm wondering what other are seeing. Examples: Silver member in 2013, (having slowly dropped from 1K to PP to GP to SP) should have dropped out of status entirely in 2014, gifted silver again. Note in kit mentioned long-term loyalty. Silver member in 2013, barely requalified for silver in 2014, gifted gold. One obvious theory is that they're looking at revenue - how many PQDs would these folks have gotten. My favorite theory so far: they're looking at amount of flying on US and trying to move those customers back to UA when US leaves *A. What are your theories as to what UA is thinking?
