Here's a interesting situation. I have, or rather had, a colleague who met his demise last October. He had been a 1K and/or GS for a number of years. His daughter mentioned to me that she had control of his MP account and that she wanted to book some travel. Based on my questions of his daughter, it appears he missed 1K status by 1,432 miles, or 22 segments. He had paid tickets booked for last Nov and Dec that would have put him well over the 110,000 mile mark, and he had over 700,000 miles in his account upon his demise. I was thinking that it would be nice if his daughter could access the widest possible array of award options, which clearly she won't be able to at this point, since he passed away as a Premier Executive rather than as a 1K. Obviously, and T&C's go, this might be a little dodgy, and I'm sure you see the question trundling toward you as clear as day... do you think it might be worthwhile his daughter putting a call in and requesting posthumous 1K status for her father? On the one hand, she has access to a good 2/3 million miles worth of points now, and a call to MP might cause that to disappear. Any thoughts?
