I didn't find this in my stfa, but if it's been discussed before I apologize. I got an email a little while back from UA about purchasing eqm to get to premier plat. My 2011 balance is 70054 EQM and 5k more costs $1145. Status would be from Mar 3-Jan 31. At first I balked at paying the money, but after a recent Europe trip that would have cost $550+20k miles for a business upgrade I am rethinking it given the 2 swu's/gpu's. 23 cpm seems high. Thoughts? My only ytd booked longer hauls are to ANC (from DEN) in the summer, but I anticipate at least one more Europe or maybe South America trip later in the year.
