The MileagePlus program features status levels. Premier members gain Premier Access by earning the required number of qualifying miles or segments. Members may then use exclusive check-in and security lanes and receive priority at the time of boarding and at the baggage claim. U.S. citizens must also meet a minimum level of Premier Qualifying Dollars in order to qualify. Other access levels include Premier Silver, Premier Gold, Premier Platinum and Premier 1K. The highest levels of MileagePlus membership are Global Services invitation-only memberships and the Million Miler Program for members who demonstrate long-term loyalty.

Participants in the MileagePlus program may use redeemable miles toward travel on any combination of United Airlines carriers, including United Express, Copa Airlines and other Star Alliance partners. As long as there is account activity in the previous 18 months, MileagePlus redeemable miles do not expire.
