About 2 hours into the flight from HKG to LHR yesterday, I wandered back to the F galley and found a pile of Mars Bars on the table. Checking to ensure nobody was watching, I took one and slid it into the pocket of my QF Sleeper Suit, then returned to my seat satisfied knowing I have just completed the requirements for stealing candy.

Today I checked on aa.com and found the two QF flights have posted and my status changed from Cardboard to Platinum. And my QF29 even posted as P for an extra bonus :D.
Code:
Date         Transaction Description       Mileage     Bonus     Total

05/25/06    PLT CHALLENGE BONUS-REG MEMBER       0    10,298    10,298
05/25/06    QANTAS AIRWAYS 613 J BNE-MEL       857       214     1,071
05/25/06    QANTAS AIRWAYS 29 P MEL-LHR     10,298     5,149    15.447

TOTAL MILES POSTED                          11,155    15,661    26,816
Now I can really enjoy eating my newly acquired Mars Bar :D.

Indeed an excellently unplanned use of an AA loophole NM. Hope there are more to come your way...

he he ... my very own thread :cool:.

Well, the extra AA miles did cost me 60,000 QF miles. Oh yes, and QF threw in a better seat for my effort :mrgreen:.
 
Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.

Here is an update on my candy theiving experience last month. After almost completing my DONE4 (still have a BNE-MEL-BNE to go), my AAdvantage summary states:

Program miles to date: 104,572
YTD Elite Qualifying Points: 56,738
YTD Elite Qualifying Miles: 37,823
YTD Elite Qualifying Segments: 13
Miles towards Elite Upgrades: 37,823
Upgrade Account Balance: 12

So that one trip has earned me enough for 5 return flights in economy anywhere in Australia/NZ, as well as AA Platinum status through to Feb 2008.
