I’m certain I’m not the only one noticing issues with how United Airlines flights have been posting to MileagePlus lately. Initially, I was going to remain silent as the errors have been – until now – to my benefit, such as upgraded flights reflecting 150% EQM as if they were paid premium cabins. Now, however, things are getting really whacky.
This past week I flew on a full-fare coach ‘B’ ticket and the flight ended up posting with negative PQMs and I didn’t receive the 125% bonus redeemable miles.
I spent a bit of time over on the Flyertalk boards today reading about similar issues and it sounds like MileagePlus will be doing a sweep soon to correct the errors. According to this post, a representative admits to the problems and points to the upcoming sweep:
As I’ve been doing for years, I maintain a spreadsheet with all of my flight activity to occasionally cross-check against what the website reflects. While not as tech-savvy as the many applications out there that do it for you automatically, I think it might be beneficial for everyone to carefully monitor their United balances in the coming days and weeks in a similar fashion to help identify any posting errors.
How have you fared?
