Kudos to US Airways for their creativity. They’re not matching the double elite qualifying miles promotion that most other legacies are offering, but instead has a pretty awesome fast track.
It’s a fast track or challenge for everyone, and no registration is required. Here’s the reduced requirement:
Fly 7,500 miles or 10 segments and earn Silver Preferred status
Fly 15,000 miles or 20 segments and earn Gold Preferred status
Fly 22,500 miles or 30 segments and earn Platinum Preferred status
Fly 30,000 miles or 40 segments and earn Chairman’s Preferred status
I’ve gotta say, US Airways has improved quite a bit over the years, and Chairman’s Preferred status for 30,000 flown miles doesn’t sound half bad. That’s not to say I’ll actually go for it, but for a split second the thought crossed my mind.
