Wait for the response to that and then go to the DoT.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Their response never came. Called last night and best supervisor could do was extend status until 12/31/19 no update on status match.  Gueas its time for DOT.

Does anyone know the following: If I book a United flight through Chase UR and I pay most of the ticket using UR points and part of it using my Chase United Club Card. Will I still receive the same benefits as if I was using my United Club Card to pay for the whole ticket?

Are you sure you want to go to DOT over a status match?

It will show up on their end as being paid with Chase's card, not yours.

Why not?

Thanks. What do I do now? I booked a basic economy ticket which is non refundable after 24 hours. I called United and they said they could not change the payment method on the ticket from my CSR to my United Club card?

You may encounter an airport agent who will waive the fee but YMMV.

Does UA award space only show on sq when there is saver availability?

It's almost never possible to redeem a partner award on any airline or alliance if there isn't saver available.

Department of Transportation responded and forwarded the complaint to United. United responded today reinstated the status match as it was. When I asked in a responsive email to the representative that reinstated the status match why I had to go through Department of Transportation when I had submitted the same documents to United his response was an apology and a $300 travel certificate. It's great to have United paying for my pqd

 Can a wiki get started on airlines that care about DOT complaints. Is it a good idea?
