    Yeah, a guy who develops complex browser scripts that help users search for and highlight upgrade availability for a web site he doesn’t control is most certainly a moron. Or possibly a genius. Dude, if you can’t see the new upgrade status option, I’d bet dollars to donuts that it ain’t in there.

    It’s not there. It doesn’t work. Are we surprised?…

    It’s frustrating… As Gold I didn’t clear at 48 on a intl flight while my collegue a Silver cleared, had to call and they said it was a system problem with too many pax on the PNR (8 total)… Shares love.

    It is one thing to simply not offer a feature. But to email a select group of frequent customers and advertise that a widely-requested feature has been added when, apparently, it has not … come on!

    In other words, I don’t see it either on the preview site.

    I just was looking all over for it a little while ago and had the same thought – I must be an idiot as I wasn’t able to find the data either.

    @EM – agreed. As bad as United’s new “Know what you owe” marketing for baggage fees (see current FT thread)… UACO’s marketing team needs some improvement.

    Seth – in reading your response to SBG above, why do you ahve to ALWAYS be a CO apologist? UA did not have it you said – who cares? I bet Smisek has you in his back pocket…

    @SBG
    Same exact thing happened on PMUA, the few times I had more than two on my res I had to call in to get the res split it. As Seth said, you have to break up the reservation, which as far as I know is far easier now than it was on PMUA. There is a button you can click to break up the itinerary when you look at it, it’s not that difficult.

    @Jackson
    How is it being a CO apologist to state an undeniable fact?

    I am still annoyed by how CPUs are cleared…I just found out that RN inventory is not relevant, even if you are inside the 100 hour window.

    How does one access the preview site?

    This looks like very nice new functionality…

    Still not available on the main site. Was hoping to use the feature for my flights this week.
