United is a being very difficult in merging the points of my UA nd Co FF accounts. Both accounts had been established for years but I hadn't "CO" in a 6 years. Since that time due to travel changes my UA account was my formal name(ex: WIll instead of William and a suffix) though initial UA account also informal name. UA then demanded to merge the accounts I needed that to change my "CO" account name but required my passport photo and ID be faxed in AND update UA info. After updating the UA information which added the suffix UA then demanded I send a fax in with identification for UA. Never had this problem with the NWA/Delta merger or any others. Even though all accounts were the same address for 20 years I am just growing tired of the UA mile plus actions. Just like I dumped British Airways after reductions in FF miles for economy tickets and fuel surcharges. The Friendly Skies of UA now have more FF seats available............I'm going AA.
