Whats your goal free travel or comfort?
Frequent flyer miles are mostly about getting free trips for most people. However people who fly more than once or twice a year know that the real benefits are in the elite status programs.
What are these? Well they are special programs with real benefits for people who fly a lot. American Airlines have 3 levels of these programs:
- Executive Platinum
Why are these programs so good? Well even on the Gold plan you get the following:
- You can check in at the business class counter
- Easy upgrades to business class
- Milage bonuses
In later posts I will go into more details about the different elite status levels and how to "cheat" yourself to Gold status on as little as a cheap trans atlantic flight.
