I am a little confused by the new 2011 Benefits.....

I am currently a Platinum with 100k miles for this year. For 2011, as a Platinum member, am I correct that I will receive the same benefits in effect as this year?

Then.....for all of my miles flown in 2011, I then receive the additional benefits below for the following year in 2012 (or in 2011 if I was to surpass my current status-- i.e. move into Presidential Platinum)?

The reason I was confused is that the way it is written almost gives the appearance that regardless of status just earned, in 2011, you have to reach each threshold to be eligible for the Elite Upgrades.

Your 2011 Upgrade Benefits: Elites Get The Best Seats
When you reach the next threshold, you get all the upgrade benefits you enjoyed before, plus the exclusive upgrade benefits that come with the higher threshold.


When you reach... Upgrade type What you receive
25,000 EQMs / 30 EQPs Elite Upgrades Unlimited upgrades on eligible flights
For use on Continental and United flights

50,000 EQMs / 60 EQPs Elite Upgrades Unlimited upgrades on eligible flights
For use on Continental and United flights

75,000 EQMs / 90 EQPs Regional Upgrades New for 2011:
2 at 75,000 EQMs / 90 EQPs
2 more at every 25,000 EQMs /
30 EQPs thereafter
Unlimited earning

100,000 EQMs / 120 EQPs System-wide Upgrades New for 2011:
6 at 100,000 EQMs / 120 EQPs
2 more at every 50,000 EQMs /
60 EQPs thereafter
Unlimited earning

Yes, for miles 0-74,999 2011 plat will have the same perks at 2010 plat. Once you hit 75k you'll start to earn Regional Upgrades and when you hit 100k you'll earn 6 SWUs as you listed above.

What about award ticket free redeposits/ changes? Will 75K premier execs get them as well?

This detail of the 2012 program has not yet been announced.
