    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.

    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:.

    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.
