So I bought the lowest cost package which included 1000 MQMs and 299 MQDs for $299.
I will have gold medallion status by the end of June based on already booked travel in 2019 (the return leg of this trip) and then another trip to Asia 2 months after we return.
Very strange you would have an MQD shortfall if you are always buying FC and D1.
