Also My United mile summary page tells me an expiration date of Sep 2011, should I book the tckets before that or should I have travelled before that?

I am planning to travel only in Economy class. So all the miles I earned from hotels and car rentals will also count right?

just need to book tickets before expiration -- travel needs to be completed within an year of booking

travel class does not matter, all miles earned from all sources can be used to book travel

If your talking about the miles you earn from your credit card then they don't really expire unless you stop using or earning miles on the card. You can call United to confirm this

Indeed there are lots of ways to reset the clock on the expiration of your miles...Online purchases, MP dining, Miles transfers/purchases...
So plan what's best for you, and keep your miles from expiring when needed.

Earned miles (redeemable miles) can be used from any source you like.
Hotels, Cars, flights, Mortgages...

Hi,

I have a question on miles expiration. Are miles from credit card purchases and miles from previous travel consolidate under one roof. or is that the miles from previous travel expire with in one year if not used? When I call the cust. supp, they give me diff answers. I am a bit confused.

Thanks,
Sam

All your miles have the same expiration - 18 months from your last account activity (in or out). The source of the miles doesn't matter.

Title?

Title of this thread is grossly misleading. NOTHING in the foregoing discussion has responded to "how many united miles required to travel from LAX to India". Can the op/mod edit accordingly.

On the Star Alliance Award Chart, USA to Central Asia is 80K, which is relevant to BOM and DEL.
Note that India is not in South Asia, which is 65K.

Currently, LAX is in the continental US, but in several million years, it might be up by Alaska.

Some stopover issues are discussed in
