The reason I asked is that because of the challenge, I went from no status to SP on one trip and two weeks later I went from SP to GP. I was just curious if I would get two packets of just the one for GP. I would hope for two for the transatlantic upgrade certs (4 is better than 2).

I've made Gold for next year already. If I'm not going to Europe before March, (and, ergo, want the Envoy upgrades) do I care about getting the kit expedited? I have a pretty card from this year that will still let me board early, etc...

I'm going to answer my own question! Here's what I found out in a call today. There's a date (not yet set but they believe to be 12/15) after which no new kits will be mailed until Jan. If you make your new status before that date, your kit is sent immediately. After this date, all the MR folks, etc who make it happen in the close of Dec will be collected, kits printed, and then mailed at once for arrival in Feb.

FYI--luggage tags sold at 2 for $10--no longer free.

I called DMSC and they had said it would arrive within 4 weeks. Is that "immediately"?

Relative to not being mailed for six weeks from now (end of Jan), I guess it is. It's all relative. Is food in F good? Well, compared to in back I guess it is. PHL-SFO pecan-encrusted salmon not bad the other day and good portion size. Seats covered in dirty film though and drink area in armrest disgusting.

Yeah - but this is something they started doing to SP and GP in 2002. It bites, but they're doing it. If anyone knows, what do other airlines do for their mid-level elites?

Question for all -

I just got off the line with DMSC and they're stating that the new SP kits are shipping with THREE e-upgrades, not FOUR!

...? Am I missing something?

I got 3 when I made SP and 4 when I made GP - both on a challenge that ends 12/15, and when SP and GP were made within a week of one another. So basically, I got 7 total. My question from above was that I wondered if I will get both an SP and a GP welcome package. For obvious reasons, I'd like both because of the Transatlantic UGs, but I'm thinking it may only be one.
