  • Your MileagePlus account must include your date of birth
  • Reservations must be booked for one passenger
  • You must travel within the US, Canada, Mexico or “certain international destinations”
  • Travel may be in economy or basic economy

Flights can depart after the deadline, but you must book by Jun. 30, 2020, and you must be 18-22 years old at the time of booking.
