  1. Actually I think that the UA story published here is irresponsible. We may see and hear of these issues but putting them on this blog is a big mistake. This is a huge problem, we know UA has huge problems and this one does not belong here IMO

  2. Which United story of the two, and why would it be irresponsible to link to someone’s story?

  3. I don’t know if it’s still possible to set up automatic transfers of Accor Le Club points (or if you need to have status — I have leftover Silver status right now) but when I got the 1050 points for doing the Quest Rewards thing (somehow the last 50 didn’t post) they automatically transferred to Iberia Avios. So 1050 free Avios, not bad!
