I wish it were that simple - I have 3 credits expiring in June and the other 4 not until after November 2nd. So, there's no real benefit either way. If they stay in RR, what happens to those 4 credits after 11/2? Thus, I posed the question. If they are moved back to A+, I'll get the equivalent in points and I'm officially upgraded to RR 2.0 for better or worse.

But this brings up another point - when A+ Rewards is gone, you can no longer accumulate credits - because that option is long gone on WN and with A+ going away, there would be no way to accumulate credits anymore. I'm sure there will be people with less than 16 credits in their accounts - not sure how many but probably not a few. And if earned through the Chase AirTran card, they have a 2-year expiration. You won't be able to purchase (if necessary) points to convert to credits as that option will be gone, so you're essentially stuck with a FF currency, I. e. credits that you can't use - unless WN makes an announcement that any remaining credits ALREADY in the RR system will be converted as well. I don't see how they can resolve this any other way without pissing off a bunch of people with credits they can't use.
