My PQD was just under $40k and flew 100% INTL flights in biz with mix of fares with one C fare and several P and Z fares.

My domestic flights for the connections were all F or A fare.

No way. PQM is meaningless. It's BIS miles/dollars to reach cpm basically.

If you have 202 PQM on 30k spend, not much of that could be in the premium cabins. You have to fly mostly high...

Ever think YOU may be the one not considering the other person?

Try flying HKG-ORD in Y and wiped out and then get on the domestic connection. I'd be reclining as soon as wheels left the...

Not really GS.... You can hit PQD and due to the class of service bonus get past PQM levels without actually flying the miles but still not get a GS invite.

If you are staying a lot still and have access to an SPG property then that's your next shot at lifetime in another program. That's what I'm going.

My guess is the same as the total numbers of elites (especially 1K) is going to drop in the post PQD world.

If they see a drop in biz travelers they may lower thresholds in some markets.

Definitely agree and I used to think GS wasn't much until I got it for the first time this year.

I had inbound delayed flight that was going to create a misconnect, when I walked off the plane I...

You have no idea until day of departure. I've watched many seats disappear seemingly overnight when you think you have a chance and seen a "full" biz cabin ending up with several upgraders.

They aren't looking for that profile in GS. If they see you are almost...

They have always done this if you change the promo as it has to be manually tracked.

It's also why they tell you that even if you complete the nights quickly, it can still take until the end of...

OP, you should fly from smaller outposts so you understand how good you have it. Flying from BOS, IAD, ORD you have tons of options.

In fact, I've had to hurry up and drive to BOS to get...

I used to think that. Had 3M in account at peak.

I'd rather sleep in my own bed. Can't get the time away from family and friends back. Life is short.

May be in same boat as you.

My spend is lower (which may be your hedge) with cpm right under the $0.40 threshold. But 100% of my UA metal flights have been F for domestics and P/Z/D and one C...

MB points over the years really add up. Where it helps is the bonuses also add to the LT totals as well for those trying to reach it.

If they took the offers to zero, it would definitely be a...

And it's silly that you say I am not entitled to my opinion. I'm not the only person I know who thinks the certs suck.

By the way, you brought it up in the thread, not me;)

100% agree.

Even as a 1K and GS I've had to use standard awards. Could only imagine how bad it would be if a CC traveler got a new card and the same availability of saver awards.
