LOL
My only question is how they will figure out this mess after 1/1 with the new system.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Is there any chance United would “Create” IN award space for a 1K member? Looking for the ewr-tlv route

Only if there is an extenuating circumstance.

Chance? Yes. Likely? Not so much.
Bigger chance they'll create PZ space.

Can a wiki get started on airlines that care about DOT complaints. Is it a good idea?
I think it's a good idea, not sure why you'd be paranoid about it.

Is there any way to extend plus points past Year end? I have 8 unused RPU's and 4 unused GPU's, which will convert next week to 320 pluspoints. It's a shame for them to disappear 1/31/2020...

+1
The max they'll extend is 2 GPUs

I am, and last year I extended 2 GPU. So my question is how many PlusPoints will they extend?

I'd assume the equivalent.

Will be flying UA EWR-TLV in February, 2 adults and 4 kids.
Is there a way to accumulate all the miles in 1 account? It will not do me much good to have the miles in 6 accounts. Not a frequent travelor. I did book the tickets on 3 separate reservations. 1 thru Amex travel, 2 thru Chase travel, and the rest with a TA. Not sure if this matters

I did some research and it doesn't look UA has mileage family accounts. Any other program I can credit it to that allows family pooling?

Thanks!
