Executive Platinum Average EQD

Obviously there's no official rank that AA posts, but I was curious what people think is a "high" EP vs a "low" Executive Platinum in terms of EQD. I'm currently ~$26k EQD and was curious where I slot among the other EPs (non-CK). I tend to be in the top-5 on upgrades lists, but it'd be great to know if people think #1-4 are CK or other EPs that have a higher EQD. Not looking for a perfect answer of course, just people's general thoughts on on EP EQD spend and what's considered "oh that's very high EQD spend even for an EP"

I'm currently 25,088 USD. Have one more DPS-DOH-BOS return in paid J (and some domestic USA flights) before DEC 31. Should finish the year slightly over 31,000 USD.

Expecting to finish just over 23K, which will include 6K from Barclay's. (And just over 150K EQM - assuming that my DFW-BNA-MIA-DFW run on 12/19 comes off.)

Unfortunately, it's not at all clear how the EQD distribution of people on this forum compares to the total population of EXPs.

I believe most EXP will be in the $12,000-$14,000 range. I will finish somewhere between 13-14. On the Upgrade List, we will always be looking up to those in the 20+ EQD.

I believe the "average" is around $20,000. I believe the "median" will be around $14,000.

Shouldn't it depend on the route you are fling re UPG list? I just "squeaked" through with $12,100 EQD and 130K EQM (not supposed to linked with UPGs) and was UPGed on 2 flts in the last several days: JFK-LAS at T-20 and CLT-JFK at T-100.

FT won't provide you with much of use because it is a skewed sample. It is, of course, proprietary data which AA guards closely and the outside people who could provide some useful measures are the CFO's of large corporate customers who spend $10's Millions and can break that out per traveler.

And you somehow aren't a CK yet?

I'm at $17.5k with 104k EQM with one JFK/AUS/DFW/LGA trip a definite, a JFK-CLT a 75% possibility and a LGA-MSP r/t a big maybe. So likely $18.5k EQD with 109k EQM. I'm usually #1 or #2 on upgrade list with the exception of LGA/DFW where I'm usually above #1 0 but rarely above #5 (particularly on the consultant heavy Thursday afternoon returns from DFW.)

I have currently at 20k EQD and SFO based, have cleared UG's 90% of the time this year including trans cons. When I have not cleared, I am usually the in top 1-2 left. I agree that median is around $14k.
