    By "soon", you mean "two weeks ago", right?

    Hope it goes well...

    This is just first wave stuff. But... I am optimistic about the new qualifying rules for EP. I can qualify with one flight if i buy first class to _______ (SYD or EZE for me...). No more runs at the end of the year, i get two to ten saturdays back. heck yeah, i'll buy a business or first class trip to Sydney or BA. Love it.

    :confused:

    You still need 100k EQMs and even at 3x earning for full F or 2x for other premium seats you're not going to get that in one r/t from anywhere to SYD or EZE. The difference now is that you have to spend $12k in addition to flying the miles, not instead of flying the miles.
