US Airways End of Year Fast Track to Elite Status

After United, American, and Continental all got on the double elite qualifying miles bandwagon, US Airways has come up with their own slightly different elite fast track. And it’s a fast track.

Instead of doubling the miles you earn for the rest of the year and adding those to the miles you’ve already flown to determine elite status, they are just counting the miles you fly during the promotion period of October 1 through December 25.

You can either earn status the ‘normal’ way based on total miles flown for the year, or based on flying a lower number of miles during the last quarter.

It’s a fast track or challenge for everyone, and no registration is required. Here’s the reduced requirement:

Fly 7,500 miles or 10 segments and earn Silver Preferred status
Fly 15,000 miles or 20 segments and earn Gold Preferred status
Fly 22,500 miles or 30 segments and earn Platinum Preferred status
Fly 30,000 miles or 40 segments and earn Chairman’s Preferred status
