And my return trip to Dublin scored ... 5 points for the outward, and 10 return (different fare class, still in the back). I'm going to Glasgow tomorrow, that will be 5 each way. And my anniversary date for points reset is 8 May. Phew, just made it !
It's become harder for me since AA domestic "First" was, not unreasonably, changed to credit as Business. That said, it is easier to reach the various elite levels on AA if you travel in coach and easier on BA if you travel in premium, though the dollar requirements on AA have leveled things out a bit. At least BA don't require you to travel premium to even join BAEC anymore
