    After botching the announcement last week (it was released with no details) United has actually announced a double miles promo for some routes to/from Seattle, almost maybe trying to match what AS and DL are running. Of course, UA's promo is more limited in terms of valid dates, routes included and only counting higher fares, plus RDM only, not EQM.

    But at least the link to register actually works this time.

    UA has given up their large terminal in Seattle, cut the Tokyo route, fly only RJs to LAX (while Alaska flies quadruple the number, in 737 aircraft), EMB-120s to PDX and some RJs to SFO, and only has two flights to Anchorage (compared to Alaska's 11).

    And they're proud enough to run a promotion on this?

    Looks like United is giving Alaska and Delta a run for their money.

    :confused:

    Not really. Shorter time-frame, more restrictive rules and no PQMs. Hardly a real counter to the very aggressive battle between the other two.
