What’s the point of having silver? You don’t even get sky priority for boarding, the only perk is you get to check in a bag for free. I would let it go.

You do actually get priority boarding with silver via zone 1 plus the increased mileage earning factor and the free bag everyone mentioned

For 5k miles I wouldn’t chase it though

Honestly dude not sure why you’re making my choice your issue, be glad that I’m saving overhead room for your bag. But I’m a female who works out, lays by the pool, explores the city, and goes out in a single day so I need about 4 outfits a day in Thailand 🤷🏼‍♀️

@ey1 for a young associate free checked bags is a big deal haha

I’m talking about personal travel lol

Just don’t do it

K1 I’ll be sure to cram everything for a trip home to Bangkok for 2 weeks in a carry on! Thank god for ur advice on a trip I’ve been making every year since I was 10

OP just fly home then...gets you your MQMs. Oh and in terms of your story: you can check 2 bags for free on intercontinental trips between US and Asia on delta

Was just talking about why I check a bag in genera D1 not $

Yeah...you mentioned why you check bags using an example where checking bags is free, trying to justify getting status where you’re allowed to check bags for free. Totally get it.

Took 2 months but today my refund was initiated by Goibibo.
