Transferring airline miles?
Does anyone know the rules around transferring airline miles to a family member and whether there is a way to do it without paying a fee? I have a lot of United and AA airline miles that I don't need since 99% of my travel is for work, which is how I accrued so many miles. I would like to transfer them to my dad so he can use them for their vacations but when I looked online there is a fee/lost miles to transfer. Does anyone know of a way to do it without paying the fee? Since it is my parents I'm ok with giving them the log in to my account but not sure if that will work to enable them to buy tickets for themselves with my miles since I'm not also flying. I just accumulated the miles through flying and never used them so not sure how all of this work.
