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?
