THANKS NETZIH!!

I am still looking for data points as to whether people skipping the flight to YYZ will get partner credit. I believe the earliest flights available in this deal were in November (although if I'm wrong and people were already able to take some of those flights, please correct me), so I assume we'll have to wait until mid-to-late November for the brave individuals who chance it to educate the rest of us.

1) Don't credit your miles to United. There have been many reports of United miles being clawed!

Coincidentally just when this glitch picks up en masse? Unlikely,  but possible,  I suppose.

Or they talked an agent into upgrading them? Which seems more likely

How would that play out? Bochur "Can you upgrade me"? Agent "sure".
Or is there some trick you're alluding to?

Just when I thought everything was fine and dandy right before take off the computers are down again that is 2 hours total we are on the plane and we didn't leave PHL they replaced the computer and the computer they replaced it with broke..

Do you think this calls for a letter to US air? The captain is at a loss of words
