United Airlines appears to have quietly joined most airlines that have decided to extend member tiers for an additional year through January 2023.
The airline has not sent out any communication to elite members, despite sending numerous reminders trying to get them to meet lowered qualification criteria over the past couple of months.

Delta’s status extension:
I am sure that some members are up in arms about this extension due to unnecessarily flying to meet the lowered criteria. Still, it was already obvious a while back that loyalty programs didn’t have any other choice than to extend one more time.
American Airlines has not yet communicated whether they will extend members like Delta has previously done and now United. I don’t think that they have any other option.
