Maintaining UA Million-Miler status

Jump to last reply

I remember reading somewhere that there was a minimum number of flights per (18 mos? 2 yrs?) required to maintain UA Million Miler status.

1. Anyone know if this is true? I can't find anything about it on the UA site.

2. If it is true, does flying on a free ticket (purchased with miles) count toward maintaining status?

I never thought I'd be concerned about this, but we used Alaska for our annual Kauai trip this year, and we've booked our Asia trip for Nov with miles. We will need to decide whether to fly UA or Alaska for our next Kauai trip, and the answer to this question will make a difference in our decision.

Thanks!
