I'll be 1600 MQMs from Plat on Delta after this project. Should I do a mileage run?

The difference between Gold and Platinum is Yuuge. Do it.

Absolutely

How much longer is the project? Could you just do connecting flights the last few weeks to rack up some miles?

Even if I don't know if I'll fly delta next year. Usually do Star Alliance

Hahah 👌 thanks fish fam

Agreed try some connections, worth it

Yes

Yes

Only one more week so this is already with some connections. Just wondering whether the diff between gold and Plat are worth my own money to do a mileage run

Slightly higher rate of upgrades and free Comfort+ upgrades are reasons to do it if you're that close. You can get 1600 miles so fast (ATL-BOS gets you 1800). That said, if you think your travel will go down significantly next year then I probably wouldn't and just roll over all those miles so you at least requalify as Medallion.

A1: I'm likely to be on United/AC next year, but I'm sure as fate has it, as soon as I do the rollover, I'm on a delta project
