I (actually a friend of mine, but I will use myself here for simplicity) have created for United MileagePlus account. I have flown twice in the past year with United and figured that it would help to get those miles saved up.
However the webpage on United website says that for tickets that are older than 31 day there is a $50 dollar charge to get those miles credited. Before I call United, do you think it is reasonable to pressure them into waiving those charges, since I want to become a new customer? Has anyone had some experience in this situation?
