My Airline Strategy for 2013


Last week, I wrote about my hotel strategy for 2013 that is rather clear. The situation, when it comes to airlines, is murkier.


What makes my life easier is the lifetime Premier Gold with United (1 million miles) and lifetime AA Platinum (2 million miles). I didn’t qualify for 1K last year with UA and will soon drop to my lifetime status. I qualified for Executive Platinum status with AA and will have the status until sometime in 2014.
