Heading east? In conjunction with our partner, United Airlines, we're promoting United's latest move to funnel New York-area traffic into Newark's Liberty Airport. Travelers who book a flight through Stanford Travel's Online Booking Tool between SFO and Newark for travel between Oct. 25-Dec. 15, 2015 will be upgraded to Premier Silver status for 2016.*

In addition, both travelers and travel arrangers who book on United through Stanford Travel from Oct. 5-Dec. 15 will be included in a drawing to win one of five Premier Gold status upgrades for 2016.

* Applies to first 40 travelers who book through Stanford Travel. Travelers who do not complete travel will not be eligible.
