US Airways hasn’t been doing status matches for a while, but have rather allowed you to Buy Up To Preferred (now canceled) or purchase Trial Preferred Status (still going on).
Now flights operated by American Airlines and American Eagle are also qualifying under the Trial Preferred program.
You can access US Airways web page for Trial Preferred here.
You need to decide at what level you would like to start your Trial Preferred. Silver costs $200, Gold $400, and Platinum $600. You will get the status for 90 days during which you need to complete:
- Silver: Fly 7,500 miles or 10 segments
- Gold: Fly 15,000 miles or 20 segments
- Platinum: Fly 22,500 miles or 30 segments
- Chairmans: Fly 30,000 miles or 40 segments
If you start with the Silver level for $200, you can go up to the Chairmans level just by flying the required number of miles or segments. The status is valid until February 28, 2015, for successfully completed challenges.
This offer is soon becoming obsolete as the US Airways and Dividend Miles are absorbed to American Airlines and AAdvantage.
