Platinum level comp????

Anyone has suggestions how to get Plat level comp to a friend? Saw such a post by flyfarfar, but not any details.

Would you like to point out where this post exists? Not only does that username register zero posts, but there are also very limited circumstances under which a status match will be given (which could easily be found using a search).

That might explain why there are no details

Besides, why are folks always suggesting the newbies use Search. Wait...been here how long?...never mind.

Cheers.

I for one would like to know about this whole comping thing too , mainly to see if the answer has changed from the last 50 times it has been asked here in the last year.

Perhaps that "friend" needs a comp now as they have already completed a challenge and are barred from another one.

For this one you don't have to search as much as just read post titles for no more than a week or two as it is a popular one to ask and ask again and again.........

Thank you all. Here are some clarifications:

1- Post of flyfar where it mentions "comped":

Posts: 306 If I was just comped AA Plat status, does that mean the certs will arrive when my package arrives? Or do comps not get them?

2-Apparently there is "flyfarfar" member.

3-OP did not ask about "Challenge"

Fair enough. That being said, though:

Did you consider asking this person how their comp was received?

If you read the relevant parts of that thread, you might conclude (as I did) that flyfarfar is a bit confusedfused.

Link to thread please

I remember seeing a thread on flyer talk about different airlines matching status that you currently have. I looked in the wiki but didn't see it. I could have just missed it, but does anyone know where that is and if the information in there is still current.

Thanks
