WOHOOOO! As expected, the joys of Chapter 11!
American has just announced that they’ll be running a double elite qualifying miles promotion for travel between December 13, 2011, through January 31, 2012. Best of all, the double elite qualifying miles even apply to previously booked travel, so there’s no restrictions as to the booking date.
YES! YES! YES! I don’t actually need the miles, but there’s something oh-so-exciting about this.
If you’ve never been on a mileage run before, this would be a great time to start. This is a way to get top tier status on American for only 50,000 flown miles, which will get you eight systemwide upgrades that you can use to upgrade any revenue ticket worldwide, even cheap ones!
I would expect United to match within 48 hours.
