The old UNITED used a star symbol system for their elites on their inflight manifests. Premier members had one * , Premier Executive had two **, and so on. I believe Million Milers received four **** at the former Mileage Plus program. FA were able to see who had the highest elite level and often used the manifest for meal priority selections. In the good old times, FA used the star symbol system and actually thanked me being a 1K member. For the past 3 years, I have avoided flying UNITED. I think performance and service got better and I am willing to try them out again. Since I am a Million Miler, I kept my elite status with UNITED. My question, is there a new elite inflight manifest system in place after CO and UA merged.
