Made transfer from ur to United almost two hrs ago and points still didnít post....is that normal?

Look in the chase transfer history, it may show sending for sometimes rare odd reasons then you have your answer.

Yup, had it int he past you are in limbo, it may now take up to 24  hrs. or longer, try calling, don;t think they can expedite it, but you may try.

You can also do another thing maybe. If you have more points, try doing a second transfer, this will hopefully go through, cancel the first, I think I did it once when I had this issue, don't remember though.

How do I know that the new transfer will work instantly? How do I cancel an old transfer?

Can you change the FFN of a UA ticket booked for the MP account holder to a different *A FFN (to get *G benefits)?

sure, but have to call to remove the original FFN, also can always change back once you use the benefits 😉

Interesting, I once tried for an LH flight booked with UA and they had a hard time changing it.

Booked a business reward ticket however itís a mixed cabin rewards with one segment in economy. Can I still get the business benefits on the economy leg of the trip? (ex lounge access two hand bags...)

I just waitlisted 2 GPUís EWR-TLV-EWR for Lag Baomer. I know itís a shot in the dark, but...

I selected the option to waitlist for both premium plus and Polaris. Any DPís if that hurts my Polaris chances?

Good luck. But kinda a waste of a GPU IMO to use it for Premium.
And AFAIK it won't hinder you spot on the upgrade list, look at any flight you'll see those cleared to Premium are still on top of the J list.
