    Where's the news?

    This has all been covered on this forum and other places in the media --- and it doesn't talk about exceptions for having the right credit card.

    We know we're unhappy, Delta doesn't seem to care.

    Well, that and the fact that the article is wrong. Someone didn't fact-check. 25,000 miles on American gets you no status - the article states it does. Basic mistakes like this imply shoddy journalism.

    Since when does a journalist get anything right with aviation? Surprised there wasn't a photo of an AF A380 on the article...

    Wait, what? I have never paid much attention to AA's elite program, but I thought 25,000 EQM get you Gold on AA.

    What am I missing or misunderstanding?

    Brain fart. 25k? Yes. 25 SEGMENTS. No. It's the mismatch that I get backwards every time, especially because it changes:

    25k EQM / 30 EQS
    50k EQM / 60 EQS
    100k EQM / 100 EQS

    I cant keep it straight...
