Back in September, View from the Wing shared details (both at the beginning and end of the month) on how to obtain free United Club access and 3 confirmed United upgrades via a status match with Copa’s ConnectMiles program. I unfortunately took my time applying, not requesting the match until the very last week of September. I provided both my American and Delta credentials, though I waited too long. Here’s the response I received this morning from ConnectMiles
Dear Mr. Adam:
Greetings on behalf of ConnectMiles.
We are developing a new product to assign PreferMember status in ConnectMiles.
Please contact us at the end of the year in order review your request.
We appreciate your interest in our loyalty program.
Well there you have it, it seems like the matching has been temporarily paused and will resume (with a “new product”) at the end of the year. Hopefully the new product will still allow for a direct match without any required flying…we shall see
