    Sorry if I asked this before. When the changes to the Mileage Plus program go into effect, will it be possible to credit the miles to a partner frequent flyer program, such as Aeroplan? If so, then it would be a great way to continue earning the same amount of miles as before. I know that with Delta flights, it will usually be possible to credit the miles to Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan.

    @Brandon – this is a K fare, so only 50% with Aeroplan. Don’t know any program that credits 100% for United K fares. As always, we provide the fare class, you can always check the partner program and see what the fare class will earn.
