Flight challenge if didn't re-qualify for 1K?

Does anyone know if there will be a flight challenge for those of us who didn't get to 100,000 miles in 2011 like years past? With the merger and delay of new systems to 3/3 I wanted to see if they would be doing the challenge now (as it used to be mid-January in the past).
Thanks

The consensus is they are too busy with the merger to do this. Apparently they still have the buy up offer if you call in before March 15. You had to be within 15K of to qualify.

More than 15K away that is the issue and reason I was hoping the challenge would be in place. Been 1K for 15+ years (Million Miler) and this is first year I didn't re-qualify and unfortunately it was a merger year...

If anyone has info if it might be coming that would be great.

Call and beg. The general response reported on FT has been a flat out "no." But, it's a toll-free call, so, if you don't mind putting a little self-respect on the line, go for it.
