Direct there, indirect back. That way you show up at a normal time on Mondays and make up your segments on Thursdays

I had the same problem. I flew indirect until I got AA EP status, then switched to direct on United (and now I fly like a plebeian 😞)

Lol direct

M1 why didn't you status match?

What's total travel time. 3x isn't helpful. Direct anything under 2 hours I'd say direct

Fly direct if you have a life at home

Indirect, read and work on the plane, fly somewhere nice for free on vacation.

@D1 long story but in a nutshell I wasn't eligible to match
