Using UA Miles for Others
My dad wants to use his UA miles to book 6 one-way coach tickets for his friends that will be flying GRU-PTY-PAP. He’s not flying with them. Since there hasn’t been any activity in his UA account for a long time, I’m wondering if United might get suspicious and think that he might be selling his miles and close his account? Or even cancel the tickets? Thanks
It’s always tough to predict what triggers something with airline fraud departments, though generally I wouldn’t be worried. A single award generally won’t trigger something.
