Sydney with Miles
« on: June 29, 2010, 02:22:47 PM »
Looking to go to Sydney in early august (9-17?) 2 + baby travelling. I have lots of miles in AA ;D but also some in united, continental and BA.

 3P and up (3P is a level that cant be earned and is below what most carriers would call Silver) w/o status you can always purchase it for $$, dont know if you can Pay Up to E+ if flying on a Mileage Tkt

In advance 3P/2P/1P/1K/GS all get E+ with a companion (or multiple companions if you play your cards right)
At the gate any *A elite (especially a CO elite) can get E+ with most agents.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
