Update & Reply From United Airlines Regarding Missing Membership Cards & Blocked Awards On Star Alliance Partners

17 Comments

Following United Airlines recent penny pinching measures of no longer sending Mileage Plus Gold members a membership card and blocking award space of several airlines I filed a DOT complaint against United and promptly received a (bogus) answer from them.

It took less than 24 hours after filing a case with the U.S. Department of Transportation until United replied but unfortunately the answers were total nonsense so I gave them a chance to correct them.
