My fiancé and I were thinking of taking a trip to Michigan in mid September before she gets busy with harvest season (she works in the ag industry). Does anyone have recommendations for areas to check out. Not super interested in getting in the water but would like to have a view of pretty blue or clear water. Mainly just trying to relax and destress before piling on stress and work. Wineries, breweries, and distilleries nearby is a plus.

Zero. Happened to me once as a 10+ year Diamond. Hell, the GUCs are challenging you use. Buy up. Enjoy the trip. The bonus miles etc as platinum will help you for status next year
Almost zero. Best automatic international upgrade is to C+
D1 and PS international is a IROPS upgrade and likely there is a Diamond or 360 ahead of you. Further planes are going out full as well. In all cabins.
Also while administrative, GF needs a Skymiles number in the booking.
As Platinum you have RUCS not GUCS you need to get to Diamond to get two GUCS and once you have those, if the plane is 4 class (has a PS cabin) you would need to be booked in PS else the GUC would be to PS not D1
All great information, thank you everyone!! I’ll see how my bonus looks this year and book if it’s solid lol
I'm just talking the TATL segments. Others will be priced differently.
Last winter I did ATL>MUC / LHR>ATL and bought $250 PS on the outbound and the best D1 was offered at $800 And normally $1200.
I stayed in C+ for the return but had more expensive PS return upgrade offers and similar D1 offers.
So $5000 for D1 both ways, not $12000
