United Airlines Confirms One-Way Awards and Miles & Money Awards

As confirmed moments ago by FlyerTalk member United PR — who also happens to be Vice President of the United Airlines Mileage Plus frequent flier loyalty program — on Feb 1 – one-way awards will be bookable on ual.com, where one can travel one-way for half the miles of a round-trip award on United Airlines or United Express, starting at 12,500 Mileage Plus miles for a domestic Saver award.

Moreover, United Airlines is introducing Miles & Money Awards, which will enable one to book a round-trip flight, hotel stay or car rental for fewer Mileage Plus miles by making up the difference in cash.

Initially, both One-Way Awards and Miles & Money Awards will only be available via the Internet web site of United Airlines, but one will be able to call a United Airlines reservations agent via telephone later in 2010 to book these awards.

    Can I buy a Coach seat on United and then upgrade to Business with United Miles?
