To earn Platinum Elite Status, you need 15,126 Elite miles or 48 Elite segments.
This doesn't include 2000 miles worth of Air France segments which still haven't posted, and I'll be adding a double-mileage AUS->IAH->BWI round trip tomorrow. Certainly in range for a mileage run to achieve plat.

I just wish I knew if Continental was planning to send out their "We see you almost made it, would you care to spend $200 to advance to the next elite level?" letters out this year. That would certainly be a lot less work on my part than doing a mileage run to anchorage or something. [img]/forums/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Does anyone have any insight into this process, or care to speculate if the recent situation in the airline industry might make Continental more or less likely to extend this sort of offer?

With all the double miles promotions going on this year, I'd be really surprised if they offered Elite status to people that just barely didn't make it.

If they did, it'd be an incredible deal, but might significantly inflate the number of elites.
