Harder to get status in short term, but on the other hand, after you qualify Silver, you have another year to qualify Gold, which is good if you reliably do say 25 segments yearly.

As with regards to level miles earned in Q1 18

- you need to have 20K to get 100XP so as to get silver, instead of 25K

- you need to have 36K to get 180XP to get gold, instead of 40K, if your silver is accepted

- you need to have 60K to get 300XP to get platinum, instead of 70K, if your gold is accepted

That is if your average per segment is at least 1400 status miles, otherwise segments are worth more.

Looks like it might be good idea to stock up on level miles in Q1. is offline
