The end is almost near, we are sadly just a bit over one week out from the final ever United 747 flight (see – Taking Part in the Emotional United 747 Farewell with Employees @ SFO – Saying a Proper Goodbye). To celebrate the Queen of the Skies, United is giving MileagePlus members the ability to bid on passenger seats, livery panels, tail number cut-outs, and airspeed indicators. All proceeds are going to Air Camp, a program that teaches children and adults about science, technology, math and engineering through aviation and aeronautics.
If bidding isn’t your thing, you can use the buy it now feature to claim a triple-passenger seat for 250,000 miles. The double-seat is priced at 275,000 miles (only 3 remaining). There are of course valuation differences among the points enthusiasts, but generally these seats will set you back $3,500-$4,000 if assigning a dollar value to your points!
