It’s still the same concept that D1 said, add more segments between now and then and don’t be a dick.

I for one wish that OP get zero status

If you can’t figure out how to add 4 more segments in 2.5 months in addition to whatever you are doing you aren’t very good at this. Also hope you don’t get it.

You have 2.5 months, take 2 trips man

Oh that’s a tough one. Try adding on segments to your return flights home on Thursdays. Unless you’ve spent Concierge Key-level amounts with them, they don’t usually budge. BUT they will likely offer you a buy up option if you’ll be short. It won’t be cheap but it usually pops up sometime in Dec but you can’t rely on it actually happening

D1 obviously has a comprehension problem. I'm anticipating I will be 4 segments short at the end of 2.5 months. I'm not 4 segments short right now.

Just route yourself differently with a connection for a couple weeks. Will make the commute longer but should not be hard to pick up 4 segments.

Adding value! Thanks, PwC1. Also, to my Deloitte brethren wishing me the best, I had already factored in the additinal segments that I will be adding to my regular commute. Thanks for the suggestions and the juju nonetheless.

Ask your travel booking agency. I did that last year and they took it to American for me. I wasnt even that close and they said yes

Is this for a challenge? Because you still have time for the year

Not usually. Where are you based?

BOS

From experience, I can tell you that AA will bump you to the next status if you are within 1 segment or 200 miles of the requirement (assuming dollar value has been reached). They don’t publicize this but I was fortunate enough to receive this benefit last year :)
