The last few years have been a unique time in the mileage / airline status space. Many travelers, even frequent fliers must now question whether Airline Status is appropriate for them, should they book a last minute trip in December to re-qualify and are mystified by terms such as MQDs, PQDs, EQPs vs. EQMs and how to calculate RDMs.
But don’t worry, here at PremiumCabinDeals, we live and breathe Airline status, Andrew our founder has been an American Airlines Executive Platinum status holder since 2009 and over the years has been Star Gold at a variety of airlines. He is familiar with all three major alliances as well as several unique opportunities that exist at smaller airlines which partner with members of the major alliances.
Based upon the information you provide in the following form, we can set up a virtual or phone based consulting call where we go over our propriety Premium Status Analysis, which takes into consideration your existing flying patterns, travel objectives (upgrades vs. Premium seats, early boarding vs Extra luggage etc.) as well as geographic locations and personal desires in order to determine which Airline Program is best for you.
- Recently using promotional fares from a certain middle eastern airline, we were able to turn a client from a non-status American Airline passenger into an top-tier Executive Platinum passenger by flying several flights over a period of a few weeks for under $5000 while obtaining over 150,000 RDMs (Redeemable Miles) which would be enough for three One-way Business class tickets to Europe or Asia.
- A client based in the Balkans was Lufthansa Senator (Star Gold or “*G”) for several years, but due to changes in her travel pattern did not anticipate being able to requalify but still wanted to maintain her *G status. We were able to find another Star Alliance program which would allow her to maintain this status at a significant discount.
