Is that also top-tier status?

I guess so. I will have to take an accountant soon to take care of them  ;)

To DealPrincess: setup your preferences; such as certain plats or gold he needs to have, chairmans club (the latter reduces the options considerably), and so on...

You have no idea how often my DD status, bumped me off flights, or had airlines employees sending me personalized letters about my accounts being flagged.
Those little touches make you really feel special.

Lol - I'm just picturing the scene - the shadchan asks the guy "what do you want the girl to be like"? The guy answers "she needs to enjoy traveling and not mind a husband who is addicted to collecting miles and using them"

They used to ask about: tableclothes, stacking dishes etc

Now its: credit cards, miles etc

Same thing happened to me on a date, although that wasn't the only factor in my case for ending it...

I think you folks are all missing the point. The entire purpose of racking up points and status etc. is to be able to enjoy them together with your eishes chayil.

In my experience, First Class, high-roller suites in Five star hotels, and caddy upgrades are only as enjoyable as the person you choose to enjoy them with.

Agreed but you first have to find someone to appreciate them with and being that we all enjoy them we need someone who can as well

I once dated a guy who was so afraid of flying that he had never been out of the new York area and planned on never ever flying in his life. So basically I told my mom she can have my miles If I marry him.... Needless to say she suddenly became very pushy... Lol. Anyhow It didn't work out for other reasons

As crazy as it sounds, enjoying to travel was a very important requirement of mine. Sure enough, 2 years and 2 RTW trips later my wife has passed every test. Best part is that she leaves all the planning to me and does all of the packing!
