Hi,

I am currently Premier Exec but look like exceeding 100,000 miles this year & will qualify for 1K.

Can someone who has made it to this level advise me of the advantages over Premier Exec, especially for an Australian resident? For example, would I get better upgrade privlidges across the Pacific or a confirmed free upgrade(s)?

From the web site, it doesnt look like I will get much more at all:(

Thanks,

John

Not sure what website you are looking at, but you will get 6 system wide upgrade (SWU) certificates, which are worth their weight in gold. On top of that you will get red carpet boarding privileges, meaning that you will always be one of the first to board. And more people will call you "Sir" (if that's relevant)...

Is that "Sir" OR "CUR" :?: :oops: :oops:

And 8 x confirmed regional upgrades a year in general, good for anywhere USA - you can do 6 legs on one cert etc.

And no change or booking fees - saves $US100 a ticket.

Only if you fly 10K miles in each quarter, Glen.

Most 1Ks do a great deal more travel than 10K a Q .. which is why I added "in general". ;)
