United Corporate Preferred Elite


Your company’s outstanding relationship with United® comes with unparalleled extras from booking to landing, and everything in between. This industry-leading, multi-level benefits program is offered only to our very best and most loyal corporate customers.


Your United Corporate Preferred journey

You’ve been selected to participate in United Corporate Preferred Elite, our most exclusive benefits program for business travelers, so you can enjoy a full range of premium travel perks on every eligible flight*.


Experience the VIP treatment with priority boarding and standby.


Enjoy access to preferred seating and tie-breaker preference on the upgrade list.


Receive higher priority and protections when travel doesn't go as planned.



Board your flight with Group 2 so you can get settled onboard sooner.

Exclusive Elite-level benefit.



Waiting for an upgrade? You receive tie-breaker preference for upgrade clearance.

This benefit applies across United’s available upgrade tools and instruments.



Enjoy access to preferred seats closer to the front of the aircraft - just behind United Premium Plus® and Economy Plus®.

Exclusive Elite-level benefit.



Business end early? Get home sooner with higher priority on the standby list for an earlier same-day flight (same origin and destination).



When weather disrupts your travel plans, we’ve got your back. With United Corporate Preferred Elite Status, your travel agent has more flexibility to make changes in case of a travel waiver.

Exclusive Elite-level benefit.



Receive preference for your original seat assignment or type (like aisle, window, etc.) if there's an aircraft swap.



You’ll have higher priority for protection in the unlikely event of a downgrade or involuntary denied boarding situation.



Rest easy. We've got you covered with consideration for better re-accommodation outcomes if your flight is delayed or canceled.


How does United Corporate Preferred status act as a tie-breaker for standby and upgrades?

It’s simple: Your United Corporate Preferred Elite status counts as a differentiator just like MileagePlus Premier® status or fare class. That means you will get priority for upgrades and standby over another traveler without United Corporate Preferred Elite status, all else being equal.


Atlantic Joint Venture Corporate Preferred program

For select customers, we've extended some of your favorite Corporate Preferred benefits like preferred boarding to flights on Air Canada and Lufthansa Group airlines.
