United Airlines MileagePlus Elite Qualification Changes For 2020

15 Comments

United Airlines today announced changes for elite qualification in 2020. This won’t affect how you qualify for status this year.

United is moving away from flown miles (not with partners) and only uses segments (Premier Qualifying Flight – PQF) and Premier Qualifying Points (PQP). United claims that this makes qualifying simpler, although my take is just more confusion.

Fabulous Fridays: Online Partner Awards

1 Comment

When I was writing about the latest American Airlines partner whose awards are now available on AA’s site for bookings (read more here), it came to my mind that it wasn’t THAT long ago when we had to call in (sometimes even several offices) to get partner awards ticketed.  This often meant also a visit to a ticketing office either at the airport or in the city.

Those days are pretty much gone for members that participate in Star Alliance, Oneworld and SkyTeam frequent flier programs. Unaligned airlines and smaller alliance ones still struggle to bring their partner award bookings online, which could be a revenue protection mechanism as well.
