DALLAS (AP) Travelers who fly the most and pay the most will soon earn more miles on United Airlines' frequent-flier program.

The change will help elite members of United's loyalty program - those who fly at least 25,000 miles a year on the airline. It will be far less-rewarding for people who currently rack up miles by taking occasional long flights at bargain fares.

Starting next March 1, elite-level members of MileagePlus will earn between 7 and 11 miles for every dollar they spend on tickets, not counting taxes. Regular members - people who fly less than 25,000 miles and spend less than $2,500 a year on United - will get 5 miles per dollar toward free travel.

United joins Delta, Southwest and JetBlue in basing awards on money spent, not miles flown.
