Another airline is looking to thin out the elite ranks. American Airlines makes an announcement today that will reduce the number of elite members. Is more to come?
Is a swap in upgrade types for very frequent travelers reward enough to spend thousands of dollars more with United Airlines? Is the fact that Delta requires $15,000 in spending from their top elites a good enough reason to make this change for United? Will United actually make more upgrades available to top-tier 1K members?
