Bonus Miles Return to US Airways Dividend Miles Members
Back on 13 June 2008, The Gate reported that US Airways Eliminates Earning Bonus Miles for Elite Members.
However, FlyerTalk member DMInsider, who is the Director of Marketing Programs at US Airways, announces that “US Airways is announcing the reinstatement of Preferred bonus miles and the 500 mile segment minimums for all Preferred members. We’ll be awarding retroactive Preferred bonus miles for flight activity from August 6 through November 19, 2008. We’ll also be retroactively posting segment minimums for flight activity from May 1 through November 19, 2008.
The company will also be announcing that all Dividend Miles members will receive a minimum of 500 miles for each segment flown on US Airways Shuttle. US Airways Shuttle 500 minimum miles accruals will also be retroactively credited for qualifying flights taken between May 1, 2008 and Nov. 19.”
Of course, some FlyerTalk members who are US Airways Dividend Miles members are happy, some believe that this is a step in the right direction, some believe that this is too little too late, and some are rather skeptical in general. Their reactions and opinions to this news can be found in the MERGED THREADS – CONFIRMED: US Airways Bonus Miles To Return (Retroactive) thread.
