Another Reason to Fly With a Frequent Flyer

My friends and family have often said that the enjoy traveling with me, because I tend to know my way around the airport, I can get them in the priority security and boarding lanes, and (on rare occasion) I can sometimes snag a companion upgrade.

With that in mind, View From the Wing just shared several interesting facts about United from this piece written by Christopher Elliott. The one that really caught my eye reads as follows:
