Started the year PM, ended PM, but had to credit about 4500 miles to AS to keep from being DM.

Started at GM and made PM recently, so PM for 2012.
I've got 10k MQMs worth of travel booked in January on DL so I'd be surprised to not make at least GM again next year.

I two-time with another alliance, so the deciding factors are both where my business, and also where cheap MR fares take me, and on which airlines I can book them.

I still think I'd rather have 2 mid-tier or better statuses than a single top tier.

Started the year Platinum and decided to "stay" Platinum with 24k rollover MQMs.

Looking at potential travel plans for Jan-May'12 should make me a Diamond, by May'12 or June'12.

Don't have visibility yet to travel in 2nd half 2012.

Started the year a kettle, finished it GM thanks to a surprise meeting in New York that pushed me over the 50k mark (was planning on rolling 21k over to next year). Will probably be silver in 2013 on whatever airline I status match/challenge onto this fall if DL doesn't make FO worth the effort.

Started as a kettle as well. Diamond into 2012 and 10K carryover hoping to maintain Diamond.

Why I don't know but I have yet to find a better airline with as many options out of Boston as Delta.

Jet blue and Southwest don't count : P

Once you are a KM, does it matter?

DM this year, will be DM next with about 10K less rollover this year (but did a lot more flying). Will requalify as DM if I want to (will rollover 70K so a good start).

Started as PM, made DM in October. Will likely be at least PM next year, might remake DM though. Or who knows, maybe the oneworld MegaDO will make me switch to the dAArkside

DM for 2011. Only ~23K MQM away from qualifying for DM 2012 due to rollover.

Unsure if I will stick with Delta. Most of my 2012 travel is tentatively planned on AA.

Started as Silver, made it to Gold mid year and for the next. I may try and make it to PM this year with the nice rollover.

Kettle to PM this year. Will try to qualify as DM for next, but most likely will just re-qualify PM with a hopeful substantial rollover.
