United MileagePlus updates are a real minus….

If you’re a member of United Airline’s Mileage Plus program, you’ve probably received an email from United announcing the upcoming changes.  Like most things in my life, I need someone to interpret the “fine print”.  The Points Guy came out with an article today that does just that and the news isn’t good.  Looks like international award flights will increase by 30% or more when traveling on United!  He said “For now, at least, United’s partner award chart for Star Alliance flights will remain intact, that means Lufthansa is still an option when traveling across the pond.

If you are a frequent flyer with American, check out the Point Guy’s article below, great information on acquiring Business Class flights to Europe for just over 1000.00!
