    So, United, why not just restore the miles based ff program as a bold statement you are competing to be the best US airline for Business and Econony travellers? You have taken the first start with bonus miles from Nov through Jan for those who see no reason to fly with the current basically worthless program (90 pct reduction in earnings for most). A targetted promotion of 6k miles is floating around at present.
    On a more serious note, best wishes to the new CEO, safe air travel to magical places is still amazing-we are asking the industry to work to make it better and more affordable, instead of prohibitively expensive and worse.

    The American air passenger is clearly disgusted by modern day air travel in case you haven't noticed. Coukd our price fixing. greedy airlines go bust even with no competition? Many think so. If you ask the air customer what they want, it is pretty much everything that the air cartel is NOT SELLING. Low fares are almost always at the top of the list for those not passing along the costs

    UA has been doing MP promotions at the end of the year for awhile. Shouldn't the question be why they're not doing EQM promotions?

    I guess that I missed the memo about lack of low fares and price gouging. I am in the middle of a ten legged, four country, fourteen day, Business Class expedition that with the ticket cost and all of those taxes, fees, surcharges and surprises comes in at 4.6K usd and reaps @38K PQM's. Oh yeah while on the subject only one leg priced out lower on a foreign air carrier.
