United will offer a status match up to the Premier Executive (mid-tier) level. Recently, they have done this by offering to give travelers a 90-day trial at the Premier status level, but to keep the status, they will have to fly 10,000 miles or 15 segments within that period. For Premier Executive, you’ll have to do 17,500 miles or 22 segments. If you are matching from American, United may match your status without this hybrid match/challenge scenario.
To get the match process started, send a letter stating why you want United to match your status (including a history of high-fare travel and any upcoming trips, especially those in business or first class) and your most recent elite mileage statement to the airline in one of these ways:
