Yes - I went from platinum to nothing when I went to business school. I called them up and negotiated, they offered me silver for $500, I asked for the manager and he hooked me up with gold for $0.

How did you get a platinum trial, to start with??

Oh wow, B-School got you upgrades? How'd you manage that? 🤔

Yeah curious to know how you negotiated

Get another airline to status match, status match back, and then fly the min required to keep status.

Caveat is that you havent gotten demoted back to silver yet.
