Just flew US air SJC-STL and wanted to know if it counts towards lifetime miles
No, this will not count toward UA Million Mile ("Lifetime Miles") status
DL counts them I believe...but UA does not.
What a bummer. If UA is listening hope you change this maybe there should be a qualifier that if you flew 25K in one year on UA then alliance flights will count towards lifetime files
I think that if UA has a flight number associated with another airline as a codeshare and UA does not fly to that destination itself then those miles should count towards lifetime status.
I was under the impression that those miles would count towards lifetime status. (That was what they did when they updated everyones united lifetime mileage balance. My lifetime balance went up by 75,000 miles.)
This is a policy change from PMUA.
When they need the programs, they did a one-time adjustment to count all EQMs for PMUA accounts, so a 2010 US flight would have counted. But going forward (post 3/3) only UA BIS miles (not even EQM) count. That's how it worked before the merger for PMUA, so no policy change really.
I am wrong then. I haven't flown a partner flight since the merger, so I don't have much experience with this.
As a one-time merger issue UA recalculated non-UA miles (back to 1996 I believe) and added them to our CO Lifetime miles. Since this, only UA miles now count to MM status.
Simple question probably answered before. Since it is only BIS miles, do you still get the minimum 500 miles (presuming you are elite) on those flights where actual mileage is <500 miles?
And those passengers flying a 1000 mile segment in T class gets the same credit to MM status as one flying on an F ticket? Not reasonable (IMHO) but I guess that is why there is a GS level.
radon, yes and yes. And yes.
And as one whose bottom has endured 1.9 million such miles, I say
the more restrictive the better.
Sad to say, I always credited my CO miles to AS, otherwise I'd be
over the 2MM mark by now.
So, one more small question.
Let's say I am booked on a UA flight and because of (pick any one) mechanical, weather, flow control , crew revolt I am unable to take the flight and am rebooked on "gasp" a WOS flight to the same city. When I request original routing mileage, will that be credited to my MM numbers??
Yes, they will count just as if you took that flight.
I'm in a similar boat....got MM with CO before the merger but used to fly US and UA a fair amount and credited a few hundred thousand miles to US instead of UA. I'd be pretty close to 2MM if I had hitched my *A wagon to UA back then.
