I'm really on the fence about this, so I thought I'd ask MPers for suggestions. As of Thanksgiving, I will have a bit over 65K MQMs on DL. This has been a rather heavy travel year for me compared to previous years, in fact, I only just recently became GM for the first time after being Silver for so many years. The reason for more travel (which is all personal) has been because of more time, money, and distance from friends/family after moving. I'm not sure if I will have to fly again for the rest of the year, but if I do, it would be a max of 4-5K MQMs. So I may be in the range where I have to decide to stay put at GM or go for Platinum Medallion. The "stay put" part of me is thinking that GM is great especially since I'm not used to anything higher than Silver. I don't fly international that often, but when I do (next week, actually), I'll get lounge access. I'll get Economy Comfort when it rolls out next year domestically. I'll get the 100% bonus and Sky Priority. Lastly, I'll get 15-20K to roll over next year and hit GM again with FO levels of flying. The part of me that says go for PM thinks: higher upgrade possibilities. Award ticket reissues for free (which could help since I book in advance for international J). Choice benefit (would probably go for $200 voucher, although debating giving a family member Silver status if they can prove to me they'll use it). Of course, if I go for PM, I'd start at almost 0 rollover. I'm LAX-based and I do fly to ATL and NYC a decent number of times and have only been upgraded 1x on LAX-ATL (as an FO on a Sunday night red-eye). Thoughts?
