This extension calculates the number of miles an itinerary will earn under the 2015 MileagePlus program rules. It adds a link to view earnings to all fare search pages, displays earnings on the Review Trip Itinerary page, and displays earnings on the View Current Reservation page.
PLEASE NOTE: The fares displayed on the search pages include all taxes and fees, so the mileage earnings displayed will be higher than what you will actually earn in reality. The fare basis and taxes are not broken down on search pages so there is no way to show the real value here. When you arrive at the Review Trip Itinerary page, the base fare and taxes/fees are broken out so the calculation can be made correctly. The same is true on the View Current Reservation page: the values are accurate.
Great stuff. Only thing missing is a function that pops up a message on some percentage of all page loads that says: “Remember: The Brick does not love you.”
I’ve faced the music. I know that when I have to fly United, I am going to get bent over a galley cart, proverbially speaking. This holds especially true under the new Mileage Plus flyer-friendly mileage earning program… This great Chrome add-in affords me the ability to know exactly how much I need to relax in order to withstand the new level of abuse I’m about to endure starting March 1, 2015.
