United MileagePlus Overview

The United MileagePlus program has changed pretty significantly in recent years, from the introduction of the valuable excursionist perk to the abolition of award charts (which had its pros and cons) and the launch of some refreshed credit cards.

The key strength of United miles is the simplicity of redeeming miles for partner flights. United does not pass on fuel surcharges, which makes it easy to choose the most convenient partner for an award flight. Furthermore, their 2-month award availability calendar makes it easy to see which days have premium cabin availability, which can make award searches a relatively easy process.

In terms of elite status and benefits, United’s program offers less choices than Delta SkyMiles but offers what some would consider greater flexibility for confirmed upgrades for top-tier elites.
