    After being EXP since it bagan and TOP before that I have finally lost the status. As of today I am back to Platinum. Last year I would not even have made Silver with my points but almsot 8mm miles does count for something.

    I probably will not get EXP again since AA unilaterally eliminated Brazil-originated flights from my corporate account. I am sad, but all good things must end I suppose.

    I fly ST (Delta to us and AF for France, and AF/SU for Russia. I use US often for US and other *A, mostly LH for Germany and points east and south. I'll probably end out maintaining both PC and Diamond but maybe only one of them.

    Sorry to hear - but at least you have the lifetime status, and some very worthwhile perquisites, when you fly AA and oneworld.

    True enough, and after all it was my own doing. AA does have my favorite shallow scuba spots, one just off Great Exuma, almost in the harbor, spectacular diversity of coral and fish. and the other just off Clove Cay in the Brigantines, similar but nobody, nobody ever goes there so the water and life are pristine. During the ten years I owned that island there were fewer than a dozen visitors, and they were all local fishermen.

    If you have accrued 8 million miles, you'd have (annually renewable) lifetime EXP/emerald status, which triggers at 4mm miles.

    You really got me on that one! How did I not know? How can I be so poorly informed? Then I read DestinationDavid and my pulse returned to its normal dull state.[​IMG]

    False? As it stands we all have annually renewable lifetime EXP status! [​IMG]

    Sorry, I was incorrect - confusing another oneworld program in my mind (which upon review isn't triggered off of miles but points for lifetime status).

    TM - There are a lot of nicer ways you could have replied - a flame on the first day may be worse than erroneous info posted in good faith.

    I thought it was a joke. I suspect we all did. You have usually been a good source for correct information so I took it as Gospel until I read a bit further.

    Maybe it was first public day jitters? Anyway, it is good to hear from you.

    We are in the same boat, dropping from UA 1K to PremExMM. So sad after so long. :( Since we will only be flying first class from here on out, we are hoping it won't make a lot of difference.
