    I am going to fall 6-8 segments short of gold on UA this year...

    I am off of work on 12/26 and 12/27 and my wife has to work, so what better chance to spend my day on a plane...

    What I am hoping to do is fly 6 segments on one of these days on a Y, B, or F fare so I can get credit for 9 segments (This will definitely ensure I make my goal and don't land on 58 or 59 segments)...

    I can fly out of Ord or MKE if it helps make it easier... any help trying to knock this out is appreciated... Promise to pay it forward.

    Or if it makes it way easier, I can do 4 segments in economy 12/26 and 4 segments in economy 12/27

    So far, the best I have found is:

    12/26:

    MKE-ORD-IND-ORD-MKE for $364 ($91/segment)
    or
    MKE-ORD-IND-ORD-MKE for $541 with 1.5 segs each leg ($90/segment)

    So it turns out I am going to be 6.5 segments short.... here is the best I have found so far. ($744)

    The one benefit is I can knock this all out in one day.

    Question for you experts out there.... lets say one of these flights get delayed and I miss all of the rest of my connections...

    Will United give me credit for the segments?
