    A friend flew United to the US end of August and returned middle of September.

    He has not joined Mileage Plus. Is he able to claim the miles now if he was to join Mileage Plus?

    JohnK,

    Look at the T & C as they normally have about a 2 -3 month period after the flight in which someone can join. I can't recall the figure for UA.

    The rules appear to state the following:

    "Mileage can be earned for activity that occurred on or after your enrollment date in Mileage Plus"

    However, this can be subject to the discretion of the person processing the retro-claim. Why not give it a try!

    I guess it is worth a try although it is very clear in their member's guide that it is not allowable.
