A good play seems to be to earn A list or A+ early in a year, so you have it for all of that and the following year. earning A+ before you ever fly a RR 2.0 flight would be a big help to earn double points back.

It'd be a very interesting statistic to hear how many A+ list cards were printed and mailed on 3/1/11. From what I understand it would mean they flew 50 one ways from 1/1/11-2/28/11, as it seems everyone's slate for a+ starts at 0 even if they are an existing grandfathered a-lister. earning 25 or 50 segments from 1/1/11 through 2/28/11 is a serious segment run not for the weak of heart though. Yes, I checked for $19 Las-lax fares which are gone. If they were there I think I'd have a couple days of round trips ahead of me..

I have a coworker who even shows up as you would have earned 'a list+ based on 2010 fight data' on the simulator, if everyone starts a zero he's out of luck too.
