No work travel in the immediate future on current engagement. AA Platinum Pro status going to expire if I don’t get $2,000 EQD’s by year-end. Think I’ll hit ~$1,200-$1,300 with personal travel. Worth spending $700-800 more to retain status by paying for full fare first class on 1-2 of my personal trips?

That never hurts!

While no one can look into the crystal ball and see what travel looks like next year, if you think your future engagements may resume travel next year, EXP is definitely worth $700-800.

I’m EP, and I’m def spending my personal money to hit the 2k EQD. Just remember tax is not counted in EQD, so spending accordingly

If you're EP, yes, it's worth it. Any other level / status below EP, not worth it.

If I was EP I would absolutely do it. Im only platinum.

That’s prob not worth it

He joined this job during COVID so first time meeting his team.. he said they were out past 1am every night. Ummm? (Contd)
