Frequent Flyer Program

Mileage Plus is United Airlines' frequent flyer program. The main advantage of the program is that recipients receive endless mileage. However, for this to be effective, the flyer must redeem or earn travel miles every eighteen months.

The organization also provides elite-level subscriptions. This offers more advantages than standard memberships. This facility was started in 2010 and was only accessible by members who had Premier, 1K and Premier Executive membership.

These members could also get unlimited updates on domestic flights. However, these facilities are only provided if there is sufficient space on the flights.
