I have been thinking of doing a mileage run ( take flights for acquiring elite status) in order to keep my Oneworld Elite status. I guess I got spoiled with extra baggage, reserving seats and lounge access. 🙂 This will not be the case until July next year!
However I received a letter today stating that as a “valued” customer of Amex and Cathay my membership was extended for 6 more months. I had hoped for a year as some other Cathay members last year got this but I guess I am too greedy and should accept what is given. 🙂
The latter also stated that if I wanted to have Gold for next year then I only need half the threshold for re-qualification than the current Marco Polo members. I guess they really want us to re-qualify than go somewhere else.
I am definitely happy with receiving this extension as now I don’t have to try and achieve BA Silver or Gold this year. However it seems tempting to only have to do half the requirement with Cathay, though I have no idea if this is better or not so I will definitely need to research this.. Any tips and suggestions are always welcome from you. Which one is better to re-qualify for? 🙂
Did you receive a similar letter?
