That should only reduce my 2010-2011 bust up by a few thousand miles, though.

I tried to figure out what my credit would be for prior years, and quickly gave it up as hopeless. I'll just have to wait and see. I think I should get a bust up of at least 100K, but maybe it will be substantially more. I do not think it will put me over the top, but I should be within spitting distance. 2013 at the latest, I think. If they haven't cancelled the whole thing by then.

I'd be a lot closer in the first half of 2012 if there were a way to get Asia to Europe trips to count. Well, I guess there is, but I'm not desperate enough to go through the US on those routes.
This is correct - CO flights taken and credited to UA for 2011 earned BIS. At least some of those in 2010 (I have one on 10/23/10) did not.
