The last couple of years, I have flown just over 60K miles per year, and have thus comfortably made E50K status. This year, I expect to be just shy of 75K. Are the incremental benefits from E50K to E75K worth trying for it? Near as I can see, the differences from P25K to E35K and from E35K to E50K are worth the effort, as they involve real advantages such as lounge access and Star Alliance Gold status. But I'm not sure I see the extra value in E75K as being quite so significant. A few extra upgrade certificates and an extra day to get listed for an upgrade, as well as another 25% bonus miles on flights seem to sum it up. Am I missing something?
