Following the lead of US Airways, UA will be eliminating their 500 mile minimum as of July 1. You will now earn actual miles flown on short hops.

I wonder when (if) Delta and American will follow suit...

I hope they won't. I kind of depend on the 500 mile minimum for part of my itineraries since Daytona Beach to Atlanta is only 367 miles.

I like the 500 mile minimum.... Miles don't cost the company much and most of the time they are never redeemed....
