good thread and concise info. thanks!

Mileage accumulation is not an obsession but simply a means to an end or a method to the madness. Could go either way. So many places, so little time.

MP status is a fleeting and ephemeral thing. It's like grasping at clouds; and we all know, it's best to grasp at the clouds from 30,000 feet.

Great meta-thread!

AA, SPG, United, Delta, and Hilton are my main programs. I also go for MR and UR points.

This post is to remind folks that since April 1, 2011, SPG is no longer offering status matches. Instead, they're doing status challenges, with some of the rules such as how often this is permitted still apparently a bit unclear.

DL DM (charter) 1.7+MM, A3 *A Gold, SPG Plat, Marriott Plat Premier, Hyatt Diamond (new from SMD3), LHW LC Access, Raffles Ambassador, ICI (Imperial Club International), Hertz #1 Gold, dirt with Hilton (former Gold), Omni, Loews, CO/UA, AA, etc., former NW PE ~1.3MM, TWA ~1.4MM
