I'm glad the bar is set high.

I understand the push to Lifetime Gold as that is good value but hindsight says there was no need to rush to get there 5 years ago.

I don't understand the push to Lifetime Platinum if you need to go out of your way to get there. Much cheaper to attain Platinum each year.

It's cheaper to choose BFOD or not chase any type of status :p

For everyone except a few outliers in the program, LTP is so far away that it's not worth bothering, and if this thread is anything to do by - some people will spend LESS as a result of LTP coming in (by way of disengaging with the program and flying with other airlines).

Even if you had earned Plat every year since QFF began 32 years ago ....you'd still only be half way to making it.

Thinking about it deeper - aside from the data science and both internal & external commercials to consider - from a gut feeling perspective, I would think somewhere around 40,000 SC (80% required on QF) + min. 10 years of continuous Platinum might have been a good place.
