Subject: Re: United Airlines Problems
Hi Ziners,

everything I read points to the likelihood that United will liquidate it's routes to other airlines. I'm not sure that it will be in the next month or two, but I do believe that it is very possible in the near future. What is less sure is the future of the Mileage Plus awards. My hunch is that one of the other airlines will pick up the US Mileage program and happily merge United Mileage Plus members into their own program. There is much to be gained by an alternate airline acquiring United Plus members. But, no guarantees one way or the other. I've thought about moving our miles ( we have around 350K United miles right now) into Hilton, but I'm going to hold off for now. The Hilton miles, even at 2x are not as valuable in my opinion.
