United admits it is trying to thin the ranks of its elites

This twitter exchange between the official @United twitter account and an unhappy small business owner tells you everything about what United are trying to do with their change to spend levels for US members of MileagePlus.

Elite members at United have been called ‘over-entitled’ by their CFO and are now being told that low spending members have ‘inundated’ MileagePlus. Lovely.




  1. lol I guess somebody is not going to be working on the twitter team much longer…
    well, at least they are honest – that’s exactly the policy United has implemented since the merger.
    After years as GS/1K, I have moved my spend elsewhere – newer planes, better service, not looking back…
