But, I also don't fly 250,000 paid business class miles a year anymore, and when I was spending $75k on UA a year, being GS felt as if they appreciated your business. I don't think GS is bad idea in that regard, but it sucks when you lose it! I think I got this "special invite" because I am flying this week on a paid F ticket (domestic) and 1k. (I am also almost 3 million miles, but officially 2 million miler). But, again who knows?
The serious issues that TC faces (IMHO) for premium fliers, especially international and p.s., is that the old CO clubs still look the same as they did when they opened. They are over crowded and dated and over lit at night. Why they chose not to invest sooner in a true Polaris lounge and upgrade the other United Club - just stuns me given the importance EWR is to them, what UA is trying to do there and the fact there are so many Star Alliance carriers there. You will get the Polaris seat and product in full "if" you happen to be going to Tel Aviv, but other than that, it's all O-L-D.
As I said above, I will go to this "Classified" restaurant this week out of curiosity - and then make a judgement.
On the bright side: The single best thing (IMHO) at TC are the new security lines with the new conveyer belt system....and yes, if your GS, then the special check-in is great.
