Mileage Plus is United’s frequent flyer programme. The main advantage of this program is that the recipient receives endless mileage. However, for this to be valid, flyers must spend miles every 18 months or earn travel miles.

Organizations also offer elite level membership. This offers more benefits than standard membership. The facility started in 2010 and is accessible only to members with Premier, 1K and Premier Executive memberships.

These members can also receive unlimited upgrades on domestic flights. However, these facilities are only provided if there is enough space on the flight.
