It is my view that Lucky’s releasing the proposed Mileage Plus scheme with horrid new conditions and a revenue requirement has been beneficial to all United elite flyers. This proposal unleashed a hell storm opposition over the various internet discussion sites and blogs, and United did comprehend how pissed off people were at their plans. The best part is that United did not implement the ridiculous revenue requirements to earn elite status and kept the Million Miler program as earning Star Gold. There definitely are unpleasant changes and benefit reductions to the Mileage Plus program, but they are keeping most of the program intact. A major thank you to Lucky for sharing this information with us, as it was of major assistance in United halting their drastic devaluation, debasement, and destruction of the Mileage Plus program. I hope Lucky enjoys a lifetime of Diet Cokes with limes on numerous future flights and scores stacks of bump vouchers. .
