Hi there, we are new here and need help. Our gold status will expire end of this month. We have been offered to maintain gold status for 2012 the option to pay a fee. We were wondering if there is any way (as we won't fly so much this year) instead of paying the fee to retain gold to do something and jump to Platinum. Also, if there is no way to do that, how do you make sure that you can upgrade to biz each time you fly if we are going to retain gold? Any help is highly appreciate. Thanks!
