Isn't it 38k for Gold plus the 16k to get to Silver?

As it was awarded to the team behind bmi, can we make sure that Joanna and Keeley et al get the info of the award? I am sure one or two of you have the details.

I've already dropped Joanna a message and I wouldn't be surprised if one of our Mods has done so already too.

Yes, it was good, but not quite that good. From scratch....


3k Status Miles to earn Blue Plus
Another 16k to earn Silver
Another 38k to earn Gold for the first time
38k annually to retain Gold.

Status miles in excess of 55k in a Gold year converted to destinations miles leading to the possibility of essentially earning 625% or 635% % for F.
