    I have a sneaking suspicion that there will be more than one or two of us flying around the country (or world) in pursuit of moar EQM for the 2013 qualifying year. Additionally, some crazies (myself included) will be heading to destinations such as LAX/SFO/ORD and/or DFW more times than the law allows (erm.. perhaps I should say “spouse allows” :D).

    This thread is a place, if interested, to post your flights and possibly meet a few MP/FTers along the way. I met plenty of you all last go-round and do not doubt I will be running into a few more.

    Happy MRing!

    I was just looking for a thread like this one. Currently only have one in the books but might book another one soon.

    Sun Jan 8 (one day)
    AA 2332 AUS-DFW (7:00)
    AA 1937 DFW-SFO (9:15)
    AA 1062 SFO-DFW (3:35p)
    AA 1452 DFW- AUS (10:00p)

    With just enough time for some good ramen in-between!

    Personal opinion, the T SkyClub is much nicer than the AC in ATL. Though it is a short walk, I prefer the SkyClub, and only visited the AC to try and get my polar bear glass. But I will go ahead and welcome you to my fair city. Should try and meet up that Saturday night, since Friendly arrives in on Saturday

    ATL was home before I moved to the UK...large part of why I'm a DM and continue to fly DL. ;) I've used the T SC in the past and remember it being good!

    Not sure if Saturday is free yet, as former coworkers in ATL wanted to get together at some point and those plans have not been nailed down yet.

    I'll let you know! :)

    well, T has been renovated somewhat recently, so it is nicer. Not as nice as the center A, C, or E clubs, but still nicer than the AC

    Right - I think my last visit to the T SC was in May and it was nice. Saw C for the first time a week ago and liked it. I tend to almost always use E since I'm usually O&D from ATL. :)

    Yeah, though when the new terminal opens, I think F will become your preferred club

    I don't even know if I'll need the miles next year, but DEQM is hard to pass up... I've got SEA-DFW-STL-DFW-SEA on the 6th purely for miles, then SEA-LHR on the 11th (on BA though, so no DEQM), LHR-JFK-YYZ on the 18th and YYZ-JFK-LHR on the 22nd. If anyone is interested in meeting up on those days, PM me and I'll send my flight details. :)

  21. Hello Everyone! I just noticed this thread while doing a Google search for something related. I'm an FTer and we've started a meetup thread there too. We've also been compiling a spreadsheet with flights, times, FT handles, status, date of request for upgrades, et cetera. We have 51 flyers on our list so far!

    We think this month will provide us with a lot of statistical data that we can use to learn more about the upgrade system and so on. We're also noting those with AC access who are willing to guest in non AC members. If any of you are not FTers or have not yet seen our thread, would you mind going over and reposting your flight info there? If you are an FTer but have not yet posted in our thread, we'd also love it if you'd post your info for us to add to our list. We'd like to add you to our list so that we'll have a clearer picture of who is on what flight and what our chances of upgrades are. The more info we can gather, the better our final analysis will be.

    I just joined milepoint about five minutes ago and am unsure about the rules when it comes to crossposting info from another Website, so I won't post a link to the FT thread here. If it's permitted for me to post a link here to the FT thread, just let me know and I'll do that.

    I hope everyone is having a terrific New Year!

  24. I'm a total n00b. This is my first time ever doing mileage runs. So far this is what I've booked:

    Jan 14: 2340, SFO-ORD, 6:10
    1521, ORD-SFO, 20:15

    Jan 20: 1522, SFO-ORD, 23:55

    Jan 21: 451, ORD-SFO, 10:05
    554, SFO-ORD, 14:10

    Jan 22: 1521, ORD-SFO, 20:15

    Jan 27: 1522, SFO-ORD, 23:55

    Jan 28: 451, ORD-SFO, 10:05
    554, SFO-ORD, 14:10

    Jan 29: 1521, ORD-SFO, 20:15

    By my calculations that will get me qualified for Platinum. I may yet add in a couple of more RTs, which would put me within striking distance of EP.

    I've got Amex Plat so I think I would be able to host a guest in the Club on one of those Saturday mornings at O'Hare if anyone's interested. (I've not ever used the Plat to get into an American club before, so I'm not completely clear on the rules.)

  25. Thanks, Pizzaman. The list we have so far is updated and posted in the FT thread daily, so any of you can look to see who is on your flight and/or make an educated guess on your upgrade chances. Since I'm not sure if participants in this thread are also FTers and/or use the same handle here and on FT, if you're not already on our list, please do either post in the FT thread or PM me on FT (my FT handle is the same as my handle here).

    The thread on FT is located here:

    http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/comm...mr-dos-throughout-january-8.html#post17725518

    We are focusing our list on the TEQM cities (LAX/ORD/SFO/DFW), so we only have flights involving those cities on our list (otherwise, it would be far too unwieldy and useless). When January is over, we are going to try to compile some statistics about upgrades and so on, since this does seem like a very unique opportunity to get some data on a large number of flyers all doing much the same thing.

    I hope those of you not already on the FT list will take the time to let us know your plans so we can add you to our list. Thanks!
