United put out a new Star Alliance Award chart for customers wishing to transfer their United flights to Star Alliance partner miles. I was extremely disappointed when United came out with their new Star Alliance partner miles transfer chart because I transfer all my United flights to my Asiana Airlines mileage accnt.
Most of the discounted fares for United will now be classified as 50% mileage accrual transfer to Star Alliance partners. This is extremely low for mileage transfer. What do you recommend that I do? I want to keep accruing my domestic U.S. flights to my Asiana Star Alliance account, but the accrual will be a meager 50%, it may not even be worth it. What is your suggestion? Buy full fare class tickets? This is crazy. I try to be loyal to United on domestic flights, and this is how they treat their customers. Looking for your recommendations. Thanks.
@ Dan — Unfortunately there might not be a much better option. If you’re booking discounted tickets then you won’t achieve a better return through most other programs. You could take a look at other programs, like COPA’s new frequent flyer program. But if you want to credit to Asiana then just accruing half mileage is your best bet. It’s not worth booking more expensive tickets to earn more miles.
