  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. 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!
