Interesting, I was also top 3% EXP:

Hours in the Sky: 309
Times around the World: 6

Took me a lot longer to fly a shorter distance. I must be flying on slower aircraft. :mad: (Seriously, though, I assume they're using blocked time vs. actual air time.)

I was hoping they'd add Hours on the Tarmac or Hours waiting for the Jetbridge...

For those who need a reminder, here's last year's thread

Hours in the sky: 123
Times around the world: 2.5

Rank amongst CK: Not stated (I guess it isn't very high - haha)

I received the email without a top % of EXP- but the EQDs and EQMs that pushed me to re-qualifying only posted this morning- I would guess that the batch process generating this email ran sometime before that. Would be interesting to see if anyone who unambiguously re-qualified prior to a few days ago failed to receive that percentile info. I seem to remember that there was some question about this last year.

Only top 20% of EXP lol....mainly a domestic flyer.

For me the high point was the avoided baggage charge statistic, which was >$1,000. Best bit of LT PLT status IMO.

Last year, at 4.5 times around the world (165 hours in the sky), I was ranked among the top 19% of Executive Platinum members (based on miles flown). But this year, also 4.5 times around the world (138 hours in the sky), I'm ranked among the top 9% of Executive Platinum members.

How curious that my distance-based ranking among EXP members increased while the distance I actually flew this year decreased. I'm not quire sure what to make of this fact pattern, but it raises some academic questions, for sure:

Are comparatively more EXP qualifying this year with short segments?
Compared to last year, are a greater proportion of EXP qualifying with primarily J- and F- fares (high EQM multiples)?
Have the increased EQD requirements this year led those that qualified last year on mostly Y-fares or PE-fares (low EQM multiples) to not make the cut? [Is the inverse fact-pattern discernible among PP, for example?]
(How) has the elimination of most easy paths to bonus EQM & EQD via credit card impacted the mix of EXP members more broadly?

Anyway - it's fun that they send these stats out... if anyone were inclined to do so - with more comparative data points - I suppose one could suss out if/how the EXP cohort this year has evolved from last year.
