Well thanks to an influx of overseas business travel, I earned Mileage Plus Premier Status on United recently and was feeling pretty good about it until recently. A friend of mine who has been premier for a couple of years and who will be premier executive soon said being premier isn't really good for anything. So now I am wondering what percentage of the traveling public actually is enrolled in a frequent flyer program, and what percentage of those have made the junior elite levels like premier or silver? Further, how valuable do elite flyers see their perks as?

I'm a CO Silver Elite and find the perks EXTREMELY valuable - I get upgraded approximately 95% of the time, and the priority Elite Desk, check-in, boarding, and security screening lanes cut down on hassle bigtime.


Live life to the fullest.

I find the perks as a US Dividend Miles Silver member nice. I get priority security, boarding, check-in, as well as unlimited e-upgrades. I also get black out date exemptions. Over all, what more can you ask for in a silver elite?
