    Hi,

    Let's say I have 45K EQM of flights booked on AS through EOY, but I'm only a lowly MVP at the moment. I was wondering if anyone has had success getting an early bump to Gold when they already have lots of future revenue filghts booked? Note that I do not want to burn my once in a lifetime status match since I'll be Gold by December anyway. Probably a long shot, but I thought I would check.

    Thanks in advance!

    It's worth a shot contacting them but I wouldn't have my hopes up since you can cancel the itineraries after they give you the status.

    Hopefully they wouldn't. that would be a great loophole to exploit. Put your butt in the seat before reaping benefits.

    An excellent reason why not to give it early.
