How do I join Alliance if I already have membership with United? Thank you.
Assuming you mean StarAlliance, you dont need to sign up for it separate from United – they are linked together. There’s no additional StarAlliance benefits for a non-elite member of a StarAlliance airline’s mileage program.
For United, if you’re Premier Silver, you’re automatically granted StarSilver status, which only gets priority waitlist and standby.
If you’re United Premier Gold and higher, you’re granted StarGold status, which gets you priority for check in, security and immigration (GoldTrack), bag handling, extra bags, lounge access, and boarding.
