Roundup Of UA Global Services Benefits
« on: February 07, 2017, 03:24:09 PM »
Benefits I've used so far:
-Priority GS phone line
-Booked a saver business award based on IN/R class availability.
-Booked a saver coach award based on T class availability.
-2/2 comp domestic upgrade cleared on award ticket with companion based on PN class availability.
-Airport checkin agent proactively bumped another party out of their seat so that I would be seated next to my companion
-GS checkin line with agents on hand to bring your luggage to TSA screening at airports where you normally have to.
-Boarded before Group 1.
-Global services email address for prompt email service.

Benefits I haven't used yet:
-GS line can call the airport to have PR-1 status added to plan B awards
-Upgrade based on P class availability within 24 hours of a flight
-Mercedes transfer for close connections at DEN/EWR/IAD/IAH/LAX/ORD/SFO (haven't connected yet)
-Refund revenue tickets (Case by case basis, but seemingly most agents will)
-Book a saver award for a companion in business or first regardless of available award space if GS member is on a revenue ticket.
-Use a GPU to upgrade a coach award to business based on PN space.
-Use a GPU to upgrade a business award to first based on ON space.
-Access a Global First lounge when flying in business in IAD/HKG/LHR/NRT/ORD/SFO.
-Access a Lufthansa first class lounge when flying United first in FRA or MUC.
-Private GS checkin/front of security line (EWR/IAH/ORD/SFO, soon LAX)
-First meal choice
-Transportation to a paid hotel room in case of overnight missed connection regardless of cause.
-Confirmed seat on the next available flight in case of irr-ops, even if it's overbooked.
-Upgrade a companion in coach to business if GS member is in a paid business seat, regardless of space.
-Access to arrival lounges in FRA (LH), LHR (UA), and ZRH (LX), regardless of class of service.
-Soft landing from GS to 1K if you don't re-qualify for GS.

Seems like this + a BP card could make for some awesome opportunities

WOW. Were you "given" that? I know your "spend" is for sure not the factor.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Is a clue considered spoon feeding? Should I believe that most elites here learned everything on their own? give me a break.
Everyone learns from clues and friends. And you from all I guess had a big advantage.

It's not what you know, it's who you know.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
