I’m in a bit of an odd situation with American this year. Here’s what my mileage tracker looks like:
Yes, I’m 13 miles short of Executive Platinum. That’s less than half way to the airport from my house.
I just moved and really actually like staying home now (thanks in part to my W bed), so don’t really want to get on a plane if I don’t have to.
Historically American will give Executive Platinum to those within 1,000-2,000 miles of requalifying. The issue is, they usually only do so retroactively at the end of the year.
So I realize I probably should get on a plane to be on the safe side, though I have such a hard time justifying it when I’m 13 miles short. Why can’t the continents drift a bit quicker?
I might just fly to Miami and back, which might qualify as the most boring mileage run ever.
