I find it hard to believe that UA Insider failed to post this here when it was posted on TOBB. Kind of a dis to us milepoint faithful. Here's a copy/paste of the current post from "over there." Notice that the moderator deleted part of the post. That, I believe, is a first. Hi everyone, Today MileagePlus is announcing that Copa Airlines will launch its own loyalty program in July 2015, and some MileagePlus benefits on Copa Airlines flights will change starting July 1, 2015. Copa will remain a MileagePlus partner and Star Alliance member, and members’ current award miles balance, Premier status and Premier qualifying activity in MileagePlus will not be affected. Please visit united.com/copaupdates for more details and information. -UA Insider Last edited by FlyinHawaiian; Today at 9:22 am. Reason: Thread for Copa Airlines Changes Only There are a lot of interesting details when one digs into it. Current CM regulars should suffer little to no pain, but UA Elites who just use CM for the occasional vacation will be disappointed, I'm sure. Personally, I think I'm going to be very pleased.
