I see a similar thread for Hotels so I thought it would be useful to list the known airline lifetime status qualifications. Air Canada: 1MM = Lifetime Elite (*G) 2MM = Lifetime Elite for youself and one nominated partner 3MM = Lifetime Super Elite for yourself and Elite for the nominated partner American: http://bit.ly/aadvmillion Effective 12/1/11 1 Million BIS(butt in seat) miles (from AA and airline partners) = Lifetime Gold 2 Million BIS(butt in seat) miles (from AA and airline partners) = Lifetime Platinum Also, as a limited time offer, one mile for every dollar spent on eligible purchases using the new Citi ExecutiveSM / AAdvantage® World Elite™ MasterCard® credit card that post to billing statements through December 2012 will count toward Million Miler status*. The Citi ExecutiveSM / AAdvantage® World Elite™ MasterCard® credit card account must be open and in good standing by December 1, 2011. Asiana Club: http://us.flyasiana.com/Global/US/en/homepage?fid=CLUB14200 500,000 miles on OZ or Star Alliance = Star Alliance Gold (lifetime) 1 Million miles on OZ or Star Alliance (or 1000 segments on OZ) = Asiana Club Platinum Continental: 1 Million EQMs = Lifetime Silver 2 Million EQMs = Lifetime Gold 3 Million EQMs = Lifetime Platinum 4 Million EQMs = Lifetime Presidential Platinum Elite Delta: http://www.delta.com/skymiles/about_skymiles/benefits_at_glance/index.jsp 1 Million EQMs = Lifetime Silver 2 Million EQMs = Lifetime Gold 4 Million EQMs = Lifetime Platinum United: http://www.united.com/page/article/0,6867,52380,00.html 1 Million EQMs = Lifetime Premier Executive 3 Million EQMs = Lifetime 1K I will update the list as more posts are added. Kiwi contributed a great link to his site with more information as well: Summary of all the lifetime elite status on the major frequent flyer programs. Looking forward to Milepoint, thanks!
