Last week American announced double elite qualifying and redeemable miles between Chicago/Dallas and Los Angeles/San Francisco through March 31, 2012.
The first question for a lot of people was whether or not United would match. As is usually the case they are matching, though with a few more asterisks.
United will be offering double elite qualifying and redeemable miles between Chicago and Los Angeles/Orange County/San Francisco for tickets booked and flown between November 3, 2011, and January 31, 2012. As is the case with the American promotion, this is only valid for those with Mileage Plus addresses in California/Illinois.
The promotion is only valid for tickets booked in at least the “W” fare class.
While it’s probably not worth mileage running just for this promotion, it’s a good deal if you’re already flying between the two cities, and it might even be worth “upfaring” to a higher fare class in some instances to take advantage of this promotion.
Registration is required.
