I am fairly confident that jdiver is incorrectTiki said:I hope Jdiver is correct. This will be our one and only chance to ever get platinum with a trip to the USA planned in 2008 while we are still platinums so we can enjoy the benefits.
What change is that? I checked briefly flyertalk but couldnt find any threads regarding a change to million mile qualifier (which I assume is referring to qualification for AA LTG and LTP).Dave Noble said:( as well as plans to change the Million Miler qualification requirements in due course )

The plans only relate to challenges which commence from next year rather than those started this year, however it does sound like the IT systems are currently as capable of handling this as they are in allowing members to see their eVIP balance online and that this plan will hopefully not be successfully implemented in januaryflyingzzzd's said:Have finally convinced SO to 'convert' to AA and enrolled him in the challenge. The email he received is as follows and it specifically mentions points earned on other carriers despite his challenge extending until 31st January 2007:
Since it hasn't been announced officially yet, and no one has experienced it to share what happened, it is only speculation as to whether codeshares count or not for this new rule.Tiki said:So how do you fancy my chances for pulling this off next year? I have only GIG-JFK-LHR on AA metal. 8253 miles. If I can use AY-AA codeshare LHR-HEL that's another 1146. Or do you think they won't be able to pull off the technical aspect by next Aug, which is when I would expect it to post?
I was counting on the LAN segs to pull this off. Are there any other AA codeshares I could sneak in? The main focus of this trip is South America.
Hi, I know that this is off topic, but I have heard about the Million Mile thing a few times now, but have not been able to find any link to the rules etc on this forum or on flyertalk or on AA. But that could be because I am not searching correctly. Could anybody give me a link to a thread or a whatever for the rules etc. ThanksDave Noble said:I think that it is ok to post it... I have read from a reliable source that AA is wanting to restrict the challenge to AA flights and will claim it as such to punters ( as well as plans to change the Million Miler qualification requirements in due course ) , however the AA IT systems seem not to be going to be set up to handle this desired change so that in the near future at least , the challenge will probably operate as currently
They may be able to program it to weed out AA flight numbers, but they would be pushing YKW uphill to get it to weed out codeshares. Besides, isn't the whole idea of codeshares is for an airline to get revenue without having to physically fly the routes?Dave Noble said:There is no official word. Apparantly AA want to be able to do new things with their IT, but remember, this is the same airline that cannot update its IT to be able to display eVIP balances, so I suspect that it will still be fine for a while
