Full fare tickets only sounds rather unlike usual DC generosity. Are some of these routes likely to be cut now that mainline seems to be using more ERJ's?

OT: Has Jenna Rowley left bmi? She used to be Diamond Club manager.

Cheapest fares that seem to qualify price up around 350 return for a domestic run. That for 4,800 status miles.

Compare that with a Swiss Business Specials at less than 300 (not on an ERJ) for a minimum of 4,800 miles, but easily 6,500+ Tough call....

Even if it is, it isn't including in the promotion.

Since you already get "double" (ie 2x) miles with C,D,J,Y, will this mean you get 4x (double what you would otherwise have received), therefore 4800 miles for a return?

Thanks for spotting my schoolboy error. My previous post is corrected now to reflect the correct figure.

Speaking of promos, it is the last week of the month; I wonder if this will be the only March edition of the email lottery?

I can't remember one being restricted to regional routes, or any other routes before.

Looks like an open promo as there is no mechanic for signing up.

'Have really expensive full fare ticket, will get double miles' (As Confuscious never said)

I just checked back in my email and Jenna turned into Keeley in mid November.

As someone flying in March, I would expect nothing more.
