Paradies Shops Honored For Treat Our Troops Program
The Paradies Shops, operators of the gift shops throughout the Dane County Regional Airport, were honored at a special ceremony by the 115th Fighter Wing for their "Treat Our Troops" program. Paradies teamed up with passengers over the last 18 months to support the local 115th Fighter Wing. Through the "Treat our Troops" programs, travelers shopping at Paradies locations can add any store item to their purchase, and the staff will deliver the donated merchandise to the 115th.
Since its launch, the program has collected donated items including non-perishable food and beverages, magazines and reading materials, travel-sized sundries and just-for-fun souvenirs or gifts.

United Unveils Miles Program Changes
Beginning March 1, 2015, members will earn award miles based on the price of their ticket - specifically the base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges - along with their MileagePlus status. Members will earn five miles for every dollar spent.
Next year United plans to offer members new opportunities to use their award miles, including single-flight purchases of extra-legroom United Economy Plus seats and to purchase Economy Plus and checked-baggage subscriptions.
