I guess as an over entitled 1k I shouldn't expect anything. As a business person I did expect more. Booked 2 tkts today, W class, over 1k for each tkt. I have 4 GPUS expiring 12/31. The outbound is before expiration so I could immediately UG as R class was 9 seats. The return is the morning of 1/1/13. I explained the situation to the MP service center, explaining that the reason I wanted 2 GPUS extended for 24 hours (heck, I'll take a 12 hour extension LOL) is to use them on our return on 1/1/13 and if I could not use them I regrettably would have to cancel. After 20 minutes on hold the MP rep comes back and said her supervisor can't do anything to extend it as the computer will not let her. I guess the computers have taken over at UA. As I had 24 hours to xl, I did. I would think the thought of losing over 2 grand would make them try to coax the computer a little harder. I am now back to reality. I will be flying someone else and give my money to them. BTW, the return on 1/1 is currently R-9 and the seat map shows only 4 seats in J on a 777 as taken. Yeah, I know, can't go by seat map.
