    He Did Not Earn What He Needed to Qualify for Elite Status After All...
    Instead of the 56,000 Premier Qualification Miles which he planned on earning, CescoAiel will only earn 41,000, which will cause him to be 9,000 short of Gold elite level status which he had hoped to have earned before a family vacation in the middle of July — and this is all due to complicated nuances in earnings on flights operated by airline partners. What can CescoAiel do to ensure enjoying benefits such as Economy Plus seat assignments, priority boarding and increased luggage allowance in time for his family vacation?

    A Credit Card Which Offers Two Tiers of Foreign Transaction Fees?

    Luggage Which Was Lost AND Damaged: What to Do?
    After having returned from a trip to the United States, one bag of a brand-new set of luggage belonging to IberianNomad experienced damage — a photograph of the damage is included — while another bag was lost altogether.

    Switching Seats with Father Between Classes of Service Aboard an Airplane?

    Fundraising Event to Benefit United We Care Employee Relief Fund
    The United We Care Employee Relief Fund provides confidential and timely short-term crisis relief to employees of United Airlines who need basic assistance unavailable through other resources — such as those employees in Cabo San Lucas who were adversely affected by Hurricane Odile. Milepoint has already donated in excess of $15,000.00 to this worthy cause. One way you can help is to attend this event on Saturday, July 25, 2015 co-hosted by Milepoint members JC1120, Xyzzy and J.Edward where the cost is $180.00 per person or $330.00 per couple — part of which includes a donation to the fund, which should be tax-deductible — and there will be a charity auction and raffle to benefit the United We Care Employee Relief Fund. Space is limited.
