United Airline introduces Award Accelerator Program

According to the email I got, the program is giving u extra bonus miles when u fly by paying extra. For a trip from LAX to SYD, triple miles require a payment of $449, and you will get extra 14976 miles, so that's 0.029 miles per dollar, not a very good value, but much cheaper than just paying miles. Good option if you need miles to top off your account.

Airline companies are desperate to get more cash in short term.

True, but you don't really benefit from this option

i dont know you, but i think you did the math wrong

14,976 miles divided by 449 dollars is 33.35 miles per dollar.

seems like good value....
