Probably the same (PM->PM), though I haven't totally talked myself out of an end-of-year MR yet to reach DM.
Mrs. GBadger has moved from FO->GM, and may make PM by the end of the year...We'll see.

DM->PM unless something major crops up (which I dont expect it to)

I'll hit about 110K MQMs which will be nice but would rather have the DM status as I will be flying enough next year to easily hit the 125K mark

PM to PM. I rolled 10K miles over last year and I'll roll 11K over into 2011. If I can keep this pace, I'm on track to make DM sometime toward the end of 2049.

The same : DM to DM (already qualified). I'm approaching double diamond but it looks like I won't quite make it unless I can convince DL to give me MQMs for my three 2010 SQ award tickets, in which case I would be 50-75K over double diamond. I guess I've flown a lot this year.

PM to DM. Sort of unwillingly (127K miles due to last-minute trip additions), as travel will go down, so expect to drop to GM in 2012 with no rollover to the coming year.

Hope this gets me a few DCA-SLC upgrades next year!

FO to PM :-).

Had a good amount of rollover ( 18,000 miles ), two TATL trips, AMEX MQMs, and quite a few flights that earned bonus MQMs ( some booked in YBM, a few gained that in IRROPs, and one of my TATL using the PIT 2x MQMs ). Looks like I'll have one more transcon coming up, so I should end up somewhere north of 90,000 MQMs when all is said and done.

Went from "nothing" previously, to FO this year, and will hit GM in a couple weeks.

Next year I will probably go from GM to PM... I didn't start flying (regularly) 'til April this year for work, and along the way I managed to get myself involved in a LDR which is amping up the personal travel.

sorry, and I don't mean to distract the subject line, but I will have "hopefully" spent $25,000 on my Plat. AMEX by 12/31. Do those last purchases have to be POSTED by 12/31 in order to get the bonus 10,000 MQM's????

I have already made Diamond again for the year, so it is not really an issue for medallion status - so those 10,000 MQMs would go into rollover anyway. So long as I get them - doesn't really matter if it is in January. Just want to be sure that I get them.

Can someone please add some wisdom in this regard. TIA

PM to DM but probably won't keep it without some lucky promos in 2011.

DM to PM. Could have made DM, but don't feel it's worth the push.
