AC can be pretty stingy with its domestic awards at times. It's also highly variable...sometimes easy to snag a flight/other times impossible. Where are you trying to fly?

I can't find any reference to the mailing status either anymore. It was definitely there in the past, but can't find anything now. Waiting on a long-since-earned status in Canada.

Any updates on the Hibiki 17 in NRT. I am almost out of a bottle that I've loved and cherished, and a friend has offered to find some for me in Japan. 20,000 yen is a bit crazy though.
