Are there any ways to get gifted or quickly earn milageplus silver?

Haven't traveled much since the pandemic and looking to get a kickstart of a few trips that we have planned. Thanks!

Has anyone being getting error message "your session has timed out" on united.com which blocks you from searching flights. It seems to come from doing numerous searches.  I've seen many posts on FT about it. Anyone have any resolutions ?

How many passengers on the same reservation get free checked and carry on baggage for premier silver status?
PM me for airline compensation help. Your case is not lost!

This would just revert the fix back to the same date.

Thanks!- I was able to message them to change it to an etc. was surprisingly easy (agent did it right away). Right now it has the same date (for some reason she said she couldnít change the expiration), but I think should be easy to get that extended. Plus ETC how easier to use even if I canít fly.

Looks dead now.


Was able to replicate earlier from ITA Matrix to book on Lufthansa site


Was filed missing the $1,800 fuel surcharge.

Bummer.
Deals like this need their own post folks.

Master Threads are good for discussion, not for limited time deals.
