And following receipt of a memo, could the travel agency then go after the consumer?
They can theoretically Try
Does UA go after people that do Hidden Cities?
Worst they're going to do is ban you from UA or close your UA FF account.
I'm never heard of that in practice, just saw the warnings from UA

That's why you should credit to a partner on UA bookings

@high end hobo Is that memo to the agency or passenger?  (Only asking because you said only travel agencies need to worry, but that letter looked directed toward the passenger)
Debit memos like for an LY or LH leg only the agency needs to worry

The only airline in the world that has taken/threatened adverse action directly against passengers that I'm aware of is UA

If you own/operate a Travel agency, you have to worry, otherwise not.

Yes, see for example

RE:  Notice of Claim Pertaining to Point Beyond Ticketing and Demand for Reimbursement


Dear Mr. XXXXXX,


It has come to United Airlines’ attention that on multiple occasions you have violated the “Prohibited Practices” outlined in Rule 6 of United’s Contract of Carriage.

United identified four  instances since November of 2016 where you engaged in “Point Beyond Ticketing,” which is the unauthorized purchase of a ticket to a destination more distant than your actual destination.  As shown below, the last segment of each ticket was not used.  By including the additional segment, you were able to purchase your ticket at a lower fare.  Please note that no irregular operations were involved in these itineraries to prevent you from making the connecting flight.

 Such conduct constitutes, among other things, fraud and a violation of Rule 6 of United’s Contract of Carriage.  Accordingly, United demands that you cease and desist these unauthorized practices immediately and that you reimburse United in the amount of $698.50 USD which represents the difference between the cost of the tickets that you purchased and the cost of the travel taken, within 10 business day of receipt of this letter.

 Please remit payment directly to me via credit card or a check made out to “United Airlines, Inc.” and send to:
                                    United Airlines, Inc.

                                    233 S. Wacker28th floor

                                    Chicago, IL 60606 

                                    ATTN: Sue Weiler

If you do not make the requested payment, United Airlines reserves its right to take further action, including filing suit against you to collect the amount owed, submitting United’s claim to an outside collection agency, terminating your MileagePlus membership, and/or refusing to transport you on future flights in accordance with Rule 21 of the Contract of Carriage. Additionally, if you have questions regarding this letter, feel free to contact me

Conrad should still do breakfast if coordinated in advance.  Would bring your own consumable food items (ie. cheese, cooking spray, etc.), they should provide new pans and utensils.

As far as complimentary upgrades at Conrad, it's a hit or miss.  I am a Diamond - requested upgrade several months/weeks/days out and they couldn't guarantee anything.  Eventually got there and intra-stay were able to put me into an OWV for last two nights.  If OWB is important to you, I would consider shelling out $$ for the certainty and peace of mind.

My two cents...
I read your review, I wish I could get so lucky, and over 100 pages of this thread lol. 

I know there are different philosophies here but I don't know if I can splurge cash before for the OWB, just want to know the conscious which one I'll have better luck with a complimentary upgrade.

Dear religious fans of MLE.

I have tickets booked to MLE, question is now the Hotels.

I'm thinking either Conrad or Park Hyatt, as i don't have much SPG points left.

Question is which one is more likely to upgrade a top tier member to a OWB?

Also does the Conrad give free Kosher Breakfast to Hilton Diamonds?

And does the Park Hyatt still give free breakfasts to Globalist after the World of Hyatt changes?   ( I have seen the reviews of chefs coming to your room every day with a new griddle etc and would really like to take advantage of that)

Any other thoughts why I should choose one hotel over the other are greatly appreciated

The worst is when a partner cancelled a ticket for fraud but then when you call to reinstate, the award space is gone and they refuse to help

I tried that and they don't budge.
good things keep getting taken away i don't have a chance to keep up with it.

18 months ago they used to do it without me even asking

this happens all the time, if you google you'll see AC cancelled a bunch of revenue tickets on suspicion of fraud but did not inform the customers.

BA does this, Southwest as well if they think your account was hacked.

I reiterate that these are not audits for buying/selling tickets but rather anti-fraud actions.

Delta doesn't have an audit team against the sale of miles, just Anti-fraud
