Do bonus miles received through status benefits (e.g., 25%, 100%) contribute to your next level status, or only miles flown?

Only miles flown


Otherwise Exec Plat would be a breeze


I am assuming only base miles count toward status?


What airline OP. I can explain Delta's system


Bonus miles on Delta count for status


I'm flying American right now. I signed up for their Platinum Challenge.


@McK. Fare class-based bonuses (e.g., 50% of miles flown for Y and B) do, but the extra redeemable miles earned based on status (e.g., diamonds earn an extra 6 miles per dollar) don't

D1 explained how it works for basically everyone

Butt in seat miles plus paid class of service bonus on the carrier operating the program, plus *certain* card-spend-earned miles, certain other airline miles and certain targeted promotions count as "elite qualifying miles" (depending on the program).

Yeah American status is all about elite qualifying miles. The challenge might make it a little different - do they give you 50,000 once you hit the challenge? Check this out in general tho youtu.be/3AeYIUyZXKE

No, it's just 12.5k miles to Platinum. Have they given 50k miles in the past on completion of a challenge?

Thanks. I'll check out the link later tonight.

Yeah the key is executive platinum, which takes 100k eqms = 20 rnd trips NYC LA = a trip every 2.5 weeks

Each day I'm realizing more and more that I'm not going to meet the one on dating apps in nyc. I've been on CMB, hinge, the league and bumble but not meeting a decent guy who wants a relationship.


Have you ever negotiated your travel schedule? N00b to being in the road and PPD wants me to do a 10hr west to east coast flight plus a few hours driving to get to client site.


Heard Deloitte’s maternity leave policy is ~6m (16 wks add’l weeks after the ST disability). EY’s 16 wks includes ST disability. Do you think maternity leave will go up in B4? What’s it where you are?
