    Nice promo if youre going anyway but even with the cheap fares doesnt seem to make sense just for the miles.
    Or does it?

    Honestly I haven't put much thought into it. LOL.

    I'm a low fare traveler for my leisure activities, so I know I won't be buying at any of those fare levels.

    My work travel is all Y fares, but I only travel within the Midwest for work, so this promo doesn't apply to me.

    Mileage running for lifetime status may be worth it even if cpm doesn't exactly seem so favourable.

    I'm sure there are quite a few hardcore lifetime status seekers who will be looking at this as a possibility, particularly since it's unlimited.

    In fact I'm gonna post in that thread with a link.

    If you start now, you could probably get from 0 to Lifetime Platinum.
    If you have that type of money sitting around and you are very bored.

    This includes "H" and above so those on the cheapie (I use that term lightly) fares are out of luck. :(

    We just booked some "I" class tickets last Friday for Thanksgiving so fortunately are eligible. I almost booked I outbound, O return so sorta glad I didn't end up doing that. Made the CPM I spent a bit more worth it - .089 vs .043, although CPMs were not used to justify this trip. :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Unfortunately, this weekend's LHR-BOS-LHR trip is a low fare class. However, in November, I should be on one of the higher fare buckets and get the bonus.

    The only thing I'm wondering is if I'll be able to use it on an ex-LHR ticket...I am a US resident, so who knows! :)

    rwoman - As long as you're a US resident and meet the other terms in the offer, then you're eligible to participate in the promotion.

    If I book something like JFK-LHR-JFK-SFO, will I still earn the promotion miles?

    That should be fine. I earned the bonus miles with an LAX-LHR A fare and LHR-DFW I fare which were separate tickets. :)

    Looks like BA has a Club World sale going on. Fly from a US hub to London, Manchester, or Edinburgh starting at $2012 all-in. Looks like you can actually start in HNL and get that rate starting 12/19. You would be Coach from HNL to DFW or ORD (because there is no Domestic Buisiness Class), then CW over the pond. Maybe get Comp UG domestic if EXP?

    I haven't kept up with earning between BA/AA/IB, but I'm thinking you would get 16K+ EQMs and potentially many more EQPs. Throw in the EUR11 bonus and maybe the Elite Bonus on AA and this could make sense for some.
