You obviously fly alot of miles so 100K shouldn't be out of the question for you.
Lance, It appears that the new line will provide CP higher status in 2005 (confirmed elsewhere in that programs will not change until 2006) so why should I waste miles with HP when I can bump my AA up to Exec P? Given that I will have to fly a year of East coast flights at a major disadvantage, why would I want to go through a year of that just to get back to where I was in 2005?

Simple answer is, "I won't." I'll be Exec P AA before the end of the year and will end up being upgraded 90% of the time on AA (or close to it) rather than getting folded into an undersized Y seat on US.

It's quite simple.

Can you show me where you read it was confirmed that there would be higher status for US CP's over HP Plats for the rest of 2005 year? I've been reading what I could about it but certainly could have missed it but most posts here have been speculation at best and I haven't read anywhere that HP plats would stay at platinum and not be given top tier status for the remainder of 2005 (the program year).

If it's confirmed that this is going to happen I don't blame you in the least. To give US CPs top tier status over us when we had no 100K tier would certainly tick me off especially since we already have a model that gives those with higher amounts of miles in the last 12 months priority over those with fewer miles when they are in the same tier. Let that sort it out and give us all top tier status...

I'm already mad at the letter that some received that said they will only take EQMs from EITHER DM or FF and not both but encourage us to fly US when we can't take HP. All we'll end up getting is our total miles transferred over but someone that has 50K in both programs is sucking at gold instead of Chairmans in the new program.


I'll start writing letters now if that is the case....
