American Airlines announced they’ll be offering double elite qualifying miles on all flights from today through January 31st (register here).
In the past United would have matched this type of silliness, but they seem to be cutting back on that (earlier this year they had fare and city restrictions on a DEQM promotion). I’ve been reading about people cheering United on to match this, but I’m inclined to believe they will not. Specifically, I feel that the former United management would have matched, but that the Continental management (who now runs the airline) will not. We’ll see. I’m a Continental flyer, and this promo certainly isn’t going to make me switch now.
In the meantime, I’ve installed a new poll tool in the blog software, so I thought I’d open it up to you guys. What do you think?
