My dad passed million miler with American a couple of weeks ago, which means he gets Gold status for life, which isn’t bad. Gotta love that American still allows all earned miles to count towards million miler status, and not just actual flown miles.
Well, little did I know there was a “gift” that came with the status, other than some cheap luggage tags. Apparently for passing 1MM members also get some upgrades. Those with a US address get eight 500 mile upgrade instruments, while those with international addresses get four systemwide upgrades!
Man, why didn’t I know that before? We could have easily changed his address to Germany (where my Aunt lives), but I guess we’re out of luck now.
