    I am a US 1K and want do some mileage runs to build miles and keep my status. My base is honolulu. I am retired and could stay a few days at a new city and not reverse right back home. Prefer to travel to Europe in the summer and Asia in the winter. Not very interested in the Middle East.

    I have 74,000 YTD Prem qual miles, and $6300 YTD qual dollars.

    Can someone guide through the basics of how I should set up a game plan?

    Wondering if I should try to get status on another airline (Delta?) when I reach 1K status on UA?

    Don't do Delta from Hawaii. Can't say about within the US but you'll have a really hard time getting a good mileage award from Hawaii.
    Found a HNL-PKG that went thru ORD last year. Cost per mile was a little over .02 before status bonus.
    Good Luck

    While Delta offers a more robust product, their mileage program has so much to be said... :eek:

    I'd do UA while their award availability was still this generous.
