AA Offers Double EQM, Will Continental?

This is a rhetorical question. It's more of a hint.

Going to agree with my Texas friend J. Edward on this one.

A double RDM program would be much appreciated, though.

They did that once with Chase.

$99 and double flight miles (plus all the other bonuses) for a year.

Good deal.

I'd go for that before double eQM(wait don't get me wrong if they offer double EQM I'd JUMP on it, but....for the company RDM at some paid intro would be much better)

CO should follow, but only existing Plats are eligible.

This is why UA might have a 100K elite level . I'd prefer to leave CO as it is right now.

Hopefully not, but maybe a bonus of extra miles for segments flown? That would be nice for all the regional flyers.

This would certainly take away the complaints of us deprived plats! I do not think CO would ever, but if they want to be amazing I am going to HKG next month!

Actually when I think about it the thing I could see CO doing is keeping everything the same but offering 200% EQMs (instead of 150%) for J/D/F (Y?) fares.

But that said, I still hope they don't do anything.
