Altitude privileges as you status up

I've not had AC status in a number of years but it looks like that will change this year... likely will hit 50K. What happens to previous privileges once you "level up" throughout a year with early recognition? For example, would you get 20 e-Upgrade credits for P25K, E35K, and E50K? It looks like priority rewards roll over (not that this particularly useful as market fares are usually cheaper).

Leveling up you (have historically) get each level. Kinda a noob bonus.

​​​​​​I wouldn't count on it, a happy error than a published benefit.

I went from zero to hero last year (no status to SE in 8 months). Most privileges add up, but some don't like the extra AQM if you don't select the same privilege at the next level.
IIRC the eUps do add up.

It varies every year and to everyone. But the most I recall people getting is the extra eUps for the level, not the base 20 again.

Whether you get the full 20 for E50k vs the 10 difference from E35k is what varies. Evidence in this forum varies especially as you may not want to advertise if you have gotten far far more credits that entitled to.

The only way to get both sets that Iím aware of is to quality for two levels at the end of the year and get swept twice. Again these are all things made possible by AC IT systems.

I've done the complete run from P25K to SE100K twice in the past.

The first time back around 2014, I got the full sets up e-Upgrade credits at each level.

The second time more recently, the e-Upgrade credits were all pro-rated.
