Airline Cutting Mileage Requirements by 50%

The airlines are hit really hard. United Airlines sent out an announcement that the qualification for their mileage status has been cut by 50%. “Since you’re a member of our MileagePlus program, I’m writing to let you know that we’re reducing status qualifications by 50% for 2021, therefore making it easier to achieve status with MileagePlus. This means that travels you already completed this year, as well as any travel you take later this year, can help you reach a higher status for next year. You’ll still need a minimum of four flight segments on United or United Express®.”
