Its possible to achieve Platinum in about 14 hours in economy! AA Platinum, that is (equiv to QF gold). Just a single one-way BNE-LAX on a B economy fare will do it.
Heh. I just flew MEL - LAX on B and it's just like a crappy 40 SC. Pretty bad, I say...

.. and even so AA from LAX - AID which only gives 20 SC in B. :(

Should have gone the other way! :) Would have at least made a few more SC's and bought some charms at LHR. :) (For my daughter! :)

And if you had done the AA Platinum Challenge you would have walked off the plane at LAX a fully qualified candy theif, complete with OneWorld Sapphire status and 100% bonus miles.
