Some of us paid for a United Club membership. We're unlikely to continue to pay for such memberships going forward if we find no seats in the lounge because it's full of self entitled self rightous folks who got a credit card that came with a one time pass. As long as my type is providing more revenue and profits to the lounge system than your type, you get capacity controls. Simple business decision. You don't like, buy a lounge membership or take your business elsewhere.

That's part of
A. making the credit card more lucrative
B. Getting people to buy memberships

The one time pass is not unpaid for. It is part of the deal with the bank and the cardholder.

You paid the "space available" price, I paid full price. You get space available service, I get full service. That's how the world works my friend. You don't get to pay a fraction of what I do and expect the same service, especially when your low revenue behind is driving me to stop paying my higher revenue annual fee. Again, that's business, don't like it go elsewhere. Please, for the love of Pete go elsewhere!

A. Part of the goal of the passes are likely to get more paying customers. So they should be treated like paying customers to get the real feel.
B. Since the passes are made to make the CC more exciting as well, and I believe they bring more revenue from the CC then from lounge paying customers, the one time use passes effectively do bring in more revenue.

I don't love Pete anyhow, but don't you think you could have written the same thing a bit nicer? Especially when you have no clue who they get more or less revenue from.
