    Does anyone know what happened to the Silver Wings Program. Sometime ago I signed up for a lifetime membership. I used to get communications but have not heard anything in a long while. Is it still in effect?

    Please note: As of July 1, 2007, Silver Wings Plus no longer activates, renews or extends annual memberships.

    If you joined Silver Wings before September 2005, you still have access to special Zone Fares. You may book Zone Fares with no booking fee online at united.com.

    I joined SW as a life member long before 2005. Where do you look for the Zone Fares and do you think it is worth it?

    I have never booked Zone Fares before, so I don't know if it would be worth it...but here are the instructions.

    Log in to united.com.
    [​IMG] Go to united.com/shopforflights and enter your flight information in the flight search tool.


    [​IMG] Type "silverwings" in the "Electronic certificate or promotion code" field, and click the Search button.


    [​IMG] When the search results are displayed, flights that are eligible for the Zone Fares will be indicated with a star ([​IMG]). Please note that united.com always displays the lowest fares, and Silver Wings Plus Zone Fares may be higher and therefore may not be displayed through the united.com flight search. If this happens, please contact the Silver Wings Plus Travel Center in order to book the Silver Wings Plus Zone Fare.

    Silver Wings Plus Travel Center
    [​IMG] You may book your Zone Fares by calling the Silver Wings Plus Travel Center at 1-800-720-1765, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. The standard United Reservations fee of $25 will apply for bookings made by phone.

    I did a few searches and didn't find any Zone Fares available. You might need to call to determine if it's cheaper than what's on United.com -- but if it's more expensive, I don't know why you would want it.
