You don't really need the card to generate occasional activity. Using a shopping portal once a year, for example, would do the trick.

I have way too many miles, but ended up doing the conversion...

I'm in a pretty similar situation as the OP. Anyone have advice on which routes get cancelled most often? Majority of my travel (when COVID isn't happening) is US domestic, so I don't have a good...

Have we gotten to the point yet where we start discussing the ethics of buying a 64-oz carton of OJ that's on sale for less than the 32-oz bottle, and throwing away half of it after you leave the...

Furthermore, their mileage program has an appraised value of $18-30 billion. So if you get rid of that, then you’ve taken on a ton of debt and thrown away the assets. And if you don’t get rid of it,...

Sorry, I may not have been clear. By selling for cash I did not mean selling to the general public; I meant selling to their credit card partners (i.e. BofA).

I suspect you are overestimating how quickly travel will recover, but time will tell.

I'm not a DL elite, but I believe the rollover MQM only take effect when you reach FO (as they say in the DL forum). So a non-elite doesn't just continue accruing MQM in perpetuity. But for elites,...

Given that DL has Rollover MQM as a permanent feature, and Medallion status has been extended through Jan 2022, it would require a departure from policy for them not to treat 2020 MQM as 2021 MQM.

Normally, yes. But right now, cash (flow) is king.

Yeah, I understand that there is extra incentive when you are earning EQM. But it just seems odd that earning EQM seemingly has more impact on your decision than using the status earned by those...

But you still have status on AS and, I assume, not on the other airlines. So shouldn't that generate stickiness to AS during the second half of the year? And if it doesn't — i.e. if you don't really...

Following the trend (or not) has nothing to do with equity. AS will follow the trend because it is the only sensible business decision. They are not going to do it because it would be “unfair” for AS...

How does that really relate to COVID-19? It sounds like you are just hoping for a DEQM promotion regardless of the circumstances.



What does equity have to do with it?

I agree that rollover of 2020 EQMs is likely, if only because I do not know what else AS would do with the (meager) ones that are earned. But DL already has rollover MQMs, so it was already a given...

Hopefully not. I have an early-April booking to HNL, and ideally AS would cancel the flight before I have to do so myself. I am sure others are in the same boat, or plane.

I suspect many would consider a challenge to be roughly equivalent to an extension. I certainly would. Either way, there is little value to earning EQM now (not that I would be flying even if they...
