I suppose it is a small thing in comparison to the minimum spend requirements soon to be faced by US-based 1K’s, but United have now confirmed that International 1K’s won’t be getting their new priority bag handle wraps.
The email from United confirms that the wraps, designed to tell staff unloading your bags from small aircraft that the bag should be put on the jet way first, won’t be coming to the rest of the world.
Hello Mr. MilesFromBlighty
We’re always glad to hear from MileagePlus® members like you. Thanks for writing.
Our apologies, at this time the luggage wraps are only being mailed within the United States.
Thanks for participating in the MileagePlus® program!
Disappointing but not surprising I suppose.
