I am sure others have had similar situations. I have used United for the last few years and have been 1K for two years and will be again. I have 700K miles accumulated. My company has recently dropped United as a preferred airlines. While we can still use United, we now have to justify it. Easy when united is lowest cost, but United out of Newark is usually not the cheapest. Just wanted to see what others have done and how they have dealt with similar situation.
