    Hi Ben. Do you any of FF programs offer a decent distance based awards for UA short haul flights?

    Hi Nick.

    Don’t think so sadly, distance based awards are mainly a Oneworld thing.

    UA does have some slightly reduced awards. 500ish mile-flights for 10K one-way vs. the normal 12.5K (domestic flights)
