Effective November 1, 2019, United Club customers, including members and their guests, and one-time pass holders will need to provide a same-day boarding pass for travel on United, Star Alliance or a contracted partner for entry into all United Club locations. See United Club terms and conditions
they no longer offer gate passes right?

Flew business on turkish but didnt realize first named spelled incorrectly(only one letter off).  Wont allow me to post points to my turkish nor united ff accounts, they say that the names dont match.  Is there any way to get the points .  I only tried by internet on credit missing points page of both airlines.

You can't change the name of the FF account?

No wont let you do it online.  The ff name was correct, only the ticket name was wrong.

Anyone have experience exiting the airport in DOH with an Israeli student visa in my US passport? Will they make issues ?

Also had a similar question. If you have an American passport that says you were born in Israel is that a problem? Cant find a straight answer online

Do you need a united boarding pass to get into the club with a pass from the CC? If yes is that official? DO they check for one?

I redeemed ur points for a flight for myself and a plus 1 for a flight from lga to yyz (redeemed a few weeks ago). Redeemed from sr account.

Now the plus 1 - different first and last name - doesnít want to fly- will it mess me up with checking in and boarding? Any way to cancel the plus 1 flight and leave mine alone (would be great if I could get the points back).

Should I call sr rep?

no need to worry, won't mess up your reservation.
If you want you can try calling airline to split PNR and cancel out the other pax. Doubt they'll offer a refund

My suggestion is keep the reservation and check him/her in online and enjoy the extra seat next to you.

So what do I do about checking in? I canít check in online without the plus 1ís passport info. Should I ask them for it or no need to check in online (carry-on only).

Booking Delta V fare - how does that translate to Virgin Atlantic (V fare by VA is their highest economy ticket, while by DL itís their deeply discounted ticket)

Thnx!

What are you trying to figure out? Mileage earnings?

It doesnít need to translate, just goes by DL (if thatís how itís booked).

Friend had star gold on united ewr-tlv.
Said on the app he was entitled to 2x 70 pounds, for both him and his wife, even though officially it's only 2x 50.
They decided to risk it and got charged $800!! No amount of arguing helped.
What now? (Besides a dispute, of course.)

You sure they werenít looking at UA Gold (which gets 2x 70) instead of *A Gold (which gets 2x 50)?

Anyways, if they knew they were only *A Gold, and they knew that that only came with 2x 50, and were ready to ďrisk itĒ, on what basis are they planning to dispute?
