United Airlines Announces Changes To Their MileagePlus Program

United Airlines announced today it is making changes to its MileagePlus loyalty program.  Beginning March 1, 2015, the award miles earned on most tickets for United and United Express flights will be based on ticket price instead of the distance traveled.  The ticket price is calculated on the base fare plus carrier-imposed surcharges (taxes are excluded), and the travelers MileagePlus status.

This policy change for United brings it in line with Delta’s new policy announced in February, and with low-cost carriers Southwest, JetBlue and VirginAmerica.
