On 9th January the United Airlines company started to offer award bonus miles to all their clients who buy tickets in order to fly on the first class and on the business class cabins of the airline. This special bonus program will be applied to all flights that United Airlines will offer until the end of February.
The non-elite travelers of United Airlines that get on board of the long-haul flights will get 3000 bonus miles, when their flight is at the premium cabins A, F, J, C or D. No bonus miles will be offered to the discounted fares in the business class cabins and for those travelers who are booked in P and Z fare classes. The long-haul bonus will be also offered to the premium flights between San Francisco / Los Angeles and JFK Airport in New York.
When the non-elite customers of United Airlines fly on shorter flights, they will be granted 250 bonus miles. Naturally, the elite frequent flier customers of the company will earn more bonus miles. Those travelers who have Silver, Gold or Premium memberships will earn 6000 miles on their long-haul flights and 1000 bonus miles if they are on a discounted business class fare. Respectfully, the shorter flights will earn the travelers 500 and 250 bonus miles per flight.
According to United Airlines, the passengers on first class and business class cabins will not require registration and they will get their bonuses automatically. This special bonus of miles will also be applied when travelers book flights marked United when they are operated by partners of the company such as Lufthansa and Swiss, Air Canada, Brussels Airlines, Austrian and ANA.
The special bonus mile of the United Airlines is a result of the new mileage bonus system that is based on revenue. Starting in March 2015 the United Airlines fliers will earn miles on the grounds of the amount they have paid and not on the distance they have flown.
