Hi all, First time on here... new to the "points thing" and finding it an enjoyable and very worthwhile endeavor. I have a newbie question that is probably very easy to answer for you vets... Almost always fly DL/KLM for work, mostly international long-haul. But for various reasons, it looks like I'm done flying for the calendar year. I'm Gold until Feb. 2014, but for this calendar year I'm only at 42,000 miles, so 8,000 short of re-qualifying for Gold again. So my question is- do I try as hard as possible to earn 8,000 more MQMs before January 1st to get Gold again? Or is it better to be Silver and roll over 17,000 MQMs into 2014? If I try as hard as possible to earn 8k more MQMs, do I have until Dec 31st or do I have until Feb. 2014? Any insight would be much appreciated. Thank you!
