Yesterday, we wrote about how Delta’s Launches Latest Promotion Which Is Now Revenue Based, and similar to Delta, United decided to jump in on the revenue based promotion game, by launching their very own promotion today.

It’s not as exciting as Australia, but those headed to Belfast, Ireland can earn double miles based on their spending in business class.
