Nope, no approval. SpaceX filed a "Reply to GSO Operators" on Nov 11th and SES also made a filing on the same day in support of their objection. Since that day no updates.

From the latest SES filing: "At a minimum, the SES Petition asks the Commission to require SpaceX to provide the PFD masks, EIRP masks, and inter-satellite masks necessary to confirm compliance with EPFD limits and allow at least 30 days for review and further comments once those materials have been provided."

Regardless of the approval Starlink-1 plane 1 is heading to 33.6 - 35 degrees relative RAAN east of the three Starlink v0.9 at 550 km. These three satellites can later be moved to Starlink-1 plane 3 either at 30 degrees relative RAAN (already approved) or 40 degrees (pending approval).

55 45 v0.9 satellites have settled at 530 km, 3 at 542.5 km, and 3 more at 550 km. The precession rate difference is pretty small between them so SpaceX either runs some experiments or wants to tighten up the plane or both. The core group plane is almost 2 degrees wide.

Starlink v1.0 plane 1 is targeting 35 degrees east of the current v0.9 plane.

So, did the V 0.9 satellites end up in 3 planes at 550 km?

No, they never spread out quite like the operational sats.  A majority of the v0.9 sats have been deorbited now.

With the reentry of Starlink-24 on Oct 24 after 3.4 years in space,  all 60 payloads from the initial V0.9 Starlink launch in May 2019 have now reentered the atmosphere, including the failed ones. The 4 deployment rods from the launch remain in orbit.  10/26/2022

I don't understand 'including the failed ones'.  Aren't they all 'failed'?  Or were they deliberately de-orbited?

Most of them were deliberately lowered to reentry, since they were prototypes and didn't have full capability to support the constellation
