Of course it's achievable; however, that equates to a 20% increase in the number of segments required.

Whether another 3 return trips for an absolute minimum of 300, or one of the FB Amex cards, on top of what was previously required is worth it, is down to personal preference. But it certainly adds a considerable amount of extra flying.


For Ivories, they would first have to do 20 of those sectors to get to Silver, and then do 36 of those sectors on top of that.
Agree with that :-)
Not fair for the starters. Hard to get status indeed.
