Mileage Plus -Premier member on United - PERKS ?

Greetings all !

I usually reside in the Orlando forum but now have a question here ! I will be flying into DC-Dulles with SAS and changing to United down to Orlando. I have a Star Alliance�� Silver membership that according to United is equalent to Premier in mielage plus. I will travelling in Economy Q class.

Can someone tell me if I can expect any perks while on United ? Will/Can they upgrade me to economy plus, Do I have to ask ? Anything else ?

Kind Regardss and thanks

As far as I know, Premier entitles you to pre-boarding. For upgrades, my guess is that it would cost you some accumulated frequent flyer miles.

Yes, if you are a star alliance elite member you can upgrade to economy plus. You will probably have to ask unless you get your seat assignments in advance.

Oh yeah, and upgrading to economy plus as an elite member will not cost you anything.
