Found a link to this on another forum but I expect any Mileage Plus members have heard it directly:
>>As of March 1, 2015, the award miles you earn on most United and United Express[SUP]® [/SUP] tickets will be based on your ticket price (that is, base fare plus carrier-imposed surcharges) instead of the distance you fly, so members will be rewarded for their travel spending on United. And when you have Premier[SUP]® [/SUP]status, you’ll earn even more. <<

Let's hope no other FF programmes copy the idea. OK perhaps for business travellers, but not so good for occasional leisure travel.

That was announced much earlier this year and several airlines already use that model. Notably VA and DL
 
Credit cards which earn frequent flyer points is a popular way to earn frequent flyer points. You can receive thousands of points on everyday spend. And, many of these cards offer generous signup bonuses! Compare to find the credit card that best suits your needs.

Not to mention America West (aka American Airlines) which will be following suit shortly. Can't have one of the "Big-3" out of step!
