New UA Mileage Rules

Jump to last reply

I got email today from UA stating that effective March 15, 2015, miles will accrue by cost not by distance flown. Award miles earned per $ is as follows...5 per $ for regular member, 7 for premier, 8 for gold, 9 for platinum and 11 for the 1K'ers. My loyalty to UA gets less and less with each change they make. I fly to CA a lot and as of now get about 5k miles a round trip regardless of my fare paid. Now if I get a sale for say $300 I will only 2100 as a silver member, more than half of what I get now. Even paying a $400 fare I will only get 2800 miles. Are all the airlines doing this? I think I read Delta has stRted this method.
