For 34 segments I'm not sure it's worth it. It will be very costly and a whole lot of travelling.
I so hear that! I do see though that award flights count as well. Found some for 15k o/w with 2 stop.  Round trip is already 6. (And Ill get a trip to Cali out of it.)
Wavering.

Book a non-basic flight, wait 24 hours cancel and get FFC?

I see United now charging up to 17.5k for saver awards between U.S. and Canada in December when previously it was 16.5k.

I cannot believe how United is treating me. I have been a 1K traveler for 6 plus years now. I flew 20K of PQP this year and was booked on a 4K flight to Israel. My flight was canceled by United. They refuse to help me. I emailed and I called and the reply is the following:

Thanks for taking the time to write to us. Were glad to hear from you.

We certainly appreciate your business this past year, and we understand that the situation in the Middle East has disrupted travel into and out of Tel Aviv, IL (TLV).   I have checked your account, and it does not appear that your account is eligible for the status extension.

 As a Premier 1K member, we value your business.  Thank you for choosing United and MileagePlus.


I have zero interest in being 1K or Plat ever again. I will fly what is best for me, not what is best for United or their alliance! Such is life! Just crazy with all the other stories I hear I have ZERO idea why they would deny extending me!

In general loyalty is a one way street with corporations. Who did you email? They likely have no power beyond the official policy which seems to only be for residents of Israel. Did you try calling the MP number?

Sorry, I called 1K and I called 1K MP and they both said either take the one-time extension or wait, maybe they will email you. But are you telling me that no one in my situation, based in the USA, has been extended? All extension are Israel-based?? TIA
