If I have United Gold Status, which Star Alliance international partner is it best to try to get a status match challenge so that I can gain access to United clubs when flying domestically?
a- easiest to get (i.e. easiest challenge offer)
b-lasts the longest/easiest to maintain?
Thanks!

As a Premier Gold member, will United give an upgrade on a trip from EWR-LAX-RNO?

Upgrades aren't available for the PRs, but I'm wondering as to how United would break this route down. Lump it all together as non-PR or split each leg of the trip up, and give the upgrade for LAX-RNO only?

 Are the taxes the same on LH?

Don't have enough miles in my M&M account to see the pricing with LH, I would assume the same? I do see they have J fare for 52k which I would take if there's not insane taxes on this route, vs cash price of 430$ Non stop.

 Would need to call tom after 8am to verify.

Just called they said $294 in taxes, so scrap that idea. $600 in taxes for 2, aside for 104K. Any other partners that I can book without this hefty YQ?
