Technically the newest member of the Elite club:)

Passed the 35k mark this morning on a flight from YEG-YYC. At YYC now waiting for my flight back to YEG, but boy , asked me two years ago about status and I would have given you a blank stare. Feels good!

Sorry had to share

Congrats.

If you're really lucky, you'll get the status in the next few days. Do let us know.... Otherwise, it's March 1.

early status ended around Oct 14, so will have to wait until Dec 2010 for 2011 benefits

Well, there have been numerous reports of the actual deadline being somewhat later than the official one, depending on various factors, and I suppose if both of those are missed, the benefits only start on March 1, 2011.

This year is my first year as elite, and I qualified around this time, maybe a week later, last year. I did not get early elite in 2009, but my benefits started in January 2010 - I just went and looked - my package was mailed Jan 6. So maybe not so long a wait if you don't qualify for early elite.

Certainly not by choice!

I'm flying DL next week, burning my old SkyMiles for a vacation. But no status at all any more (barely flew DL at all last year), I am already dreading the pain!
