2016 MVP/MVPG/MVPG 75K Qualification Roll Call

Is it too early to post this?

I am having some extensive travel plans in January and February on AS, I might be able to make 75k again by early Feb.

Or he's doing a couple of turns to Europe on Delta in J. That 75% bonus helps a ton.

Lucky that work covers the flights.

Does AS even offer benefits to those who fly more than 75K EQM? Something like what US currently offers and what AA used to offer?
