Pretty happy with that considering I fly maybe once a year for business, and I'll be hitting PPro after Christmas flights

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. (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

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.

Mine says, “based on miles flown”.

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.
