    OK, AA flyers:

    Tell us which 2013 elite level you are aiming to qualify for with your 2012 flying, and then tell us your best prediction as to when you'll hit it.

    Are you going for "Gold," "Platinum," or "Executive Platinum?" And, keeping in mind the Double Elite Qualifying Miles through January, pick a date you think you'll hit your goal.

    No prize, but as the year goes on we can see who comes closest!

    "Lifetime Golds" shouldn't enter, unless they are going for a higher tier, nor should "Lifetime Platinums" unless they are going for "Executive Platinum."

    Who wants to predict first? :)

    Lucky that I live in Texas for some triple dip perks.

    Platinum by June, not really looking at EXP unless they offer another DEQM at the end of the year.

    I'll have at least 36k by the end of January based on booked flights and that might become 50k if I add one more trip. My goal is Plat, but I guess EXP could happen if I fly alot for work or just decide to go for it, which I'm not planning on right now.

    Goal is EXP requal. Predict Plat by end Feb, and I'm going to guess EXP by end Sept, on par with this past year.

    EXP requalificaton on February 1--my 11th year at EXP. As I'm leaving UA I expect to put significantly more miles on AA this year. Can never hurt to have some extra miles for international award travel. Nice to be SFO based this time of year. :)

    EXP renewal. I don't think I could do without it now. :)

    I'll roll out of January with 60K EQMs. Depending on work travel (with some still going to UA) I would guess summertime will see me requalified. While anything is possible, I doubt we'll see DEQM in 2012 again.

    As an aside, I don't think I'll hit 3MM lifetime in 2012. I'm about 200K away. I'll have at least $40K in spend on the Exec card to get the 10K EQMs. But, that would mean an additional 160K from flight and addl credit card spend. I guess I can push spend over to the card if I need the extra SWUs.

    EXP requal by Spring, 2012. Will be halfway there by the end of January thanks to the DEQM promo. If I chose to mileage run the weekends I won't be travelling already, I could reach EXP by the end of January.........

    I will requalify for EXP on December 15, 2012. That isn't a prediction, it's a fact. :D

    Until quadruple miles comes along on $99 transcons. We all have our breaking points.
