1 Comment

Copa, Panama based Star Alliance member airline, that uses United’s Mileage Plus as its frequent flier program is offering 25% PQM bonus on all flights in 2014.


This offer appears to be targeted, although the copy says that it is open for all MileagePlus members but then mentions on the T&C’s that it is only available for the recipients of the email.

The only requirement is that the Copa tickets is purchased directly from the airline on Copa’s website, call center or CTO (City Ticket Office).
