Still find it hard to chew that they restart everything on the first day of the year rather than on the date that you enrolled on. Didn't know I only had less than 3 months to earn my status when I enrolled :
Afaik, you can earn Platinum with all your ticketed flights in January. Even if you mean you could have earned Platinum in four months, you still might be able to... if you’ve not challenged for status in the previous five years. See HELP DESK & FAQ: Gold and Platinum status Challenge as of 2017.

I’m sure there are other quirks that distinguish American’s FFP from others’. Now that you’re here and have found the forum, we’ve probably got those covered here.
