Nothing a mileage run with a stopover can't solve

thanks LH but I will skip this, hopefully others will get it too and will be useful
Also received, quite crazy terms: fly 47k miles (!) for 14k.
Not a chance!

Nothing for me this time that I have a couple of long haul flights booked.

I missed my previous target by a few thousand miles but I was not interested in doing a mileage run for an extra 8000 miles.

I've received the so called 'peanuts-offer':
Earn 2,000 status miles when you fly between 15 October 2013 and 15 January 2014, and as a reward, you'll be credited with an additional 1,000 award miles.*

Let's fly low.....

Sounds like another 'enhanced promotion'

Could we please stop with the targeted promo's.... they are around a few times a year and are based on previous flying patterns + a little extra.

Not very useful to post here since they are personal....

I find them very interesting. Maybe it would make sense to move them to a separate thread for targeted promos.

My last target was 29,500 status miles which I didn't meet. This time the target is 32,500 miles!
It's only of academic interest.

I've added the promo to the wiki post.

I think it could be interesting to read about those promos as they may give you an idea on how those targets are being calculated.

I got an offer of 1'550 for 3'500 (collected about 3'000 status miles this year, all my other flights went to A3) while I had about 12'000 in previous year's last quarter.

So the target seems to be unrelated to the amount flown in previous years (as some have speculated). But it's the first target for me this year.

Edit: Correction; per today, I have collected 4'694 status miles on 13 segments this year.

I received the same offer--there must be an algorithm based on travel patterns to determine the challenge levels...

I also find extra award miles to be not so useful anyway...Now if they were to try to induce me with extra status miles, they might be able to influence my behavior a little [email protected]:-)

I believe that their algorithm is becoming more sophisticated: I have the impression that it is also based on the miles that they forecast based on our current reservations. In my case I have bookings for about 35k miles, and my threshold is quite high, 47k to get the bonus...Thinking to switch the miles to other program, as I already requalified for Sen
