AA Exec Plat saying hi

Hi folks,

New member, AA EX Plat Million Miler saying hi.

I've started a thread under the Mileage Run to document my trips to get to Exec Plat this year.

https://insideflyer.com/forums/threads/going-for-aa-exec-plat-mileage-marathon-time.138732/

While many have said that the mileage run is dead, I'm giving it a shot within the new AA mandated parameters, and seeing some of the other side of the world.

Hi Zebra! Fellow newbie here, and in a similar situation. A Japan project that's been postponed till after the end of the year has me 40k short of Exec, and 3 months to make up those miles. I'm in SoCal, and looking at Asia trips similar to yours.

Jeffe,

Like I found out, Google Flights is the ticket! (pun intended 😀 )

Searching for "Asia" then the month, and selecting "weekend:" brings up a lot of great options. Then it's a matter of fine tuning to fit your schedule and budget.

The Middle East had some good fares as well, especially to Doha.

Safe travels!
