    In honor of Randy Petersen and the one year anniversary of MilePoint I would like to sponsor 10 EVIP to anyone on Milepoint with a long AA flight and Silver or above status. If you have a long flight (greater then 7 hours) and would like an upgrade start a conversation with me.

    As a refresher (some of you will have this memorized), here are the booking code restrictions:
    • As long as its a paid ticket AA lets you upgrade!
    • NO AWARD TICKETS CAN BE UPGRADED WITH EVIP.
    Due to popular demand I have extended this to 10 Upgrades and am now including silver so we have 3 to go! As this how now been extended I am now looking for a minimum flight of 7 hours.

    2 EVIP Booked: ORD-IAH-LAX-HNL-LAX-STL-ORD
    1 EVIP LAX-JFK
    2 EVIP MCO-MIA-MDE-MIA-MCO
    1 EVIP LAX-JFK
    1 EVIP NRT-ORD

    Now I feel like I should figure a long trip to book for this. Unfortunately my next paycheck speaks for a few shorter trips already. Maybe I can just work my tax refund for it ;)

    Most of my postings are on TOBB. I try to only post when something really interests me and/or I feel I can add value. *sigh*

    It might be some time before I reach GOLD here.

    Very generous of you benolaa. By long did you mean transcon like SFO-JFK or real longhaul like LAX-NRT and JFK-NRT?

    Awesome of you to offer these up -- especially since they aren't the short-dated ones!

    Now, if I could only get to gold quickly... :D

    Congrats buddy, If I had that opportunity I wouldn't ask for myself, but my parents who are on their 35th anniversary to the Rocky Mountains from Brazil (GRU). Unfortunately I'm out of EVIPS, so they will have to face 16h flight on Y! Either way congratulations on the spirit of sharing!

    ....am guessing the status page MilePoint had a few hits today, as people looked at their status today, and then looked at the page about Gold status to see what it would take to reach that....:)

    No kidding. Apparently endless posting is required before one's presence is considered of value. Especially since a good number of MP "Golds" make their status by posting totally worthless crap in non-aviation-specific threads. Woo hoo.

    You mean number counting threads add no value? :D;)

    Not wanting to hijack/further de-rail the thread, but I do agree. One problem with TOBB was indeed the post-padding. It needless cluttered up threads, made valuable information more difficult to find, etc. Sad to read that it's happening here too. :(

    I am giving Gold members one week priority after which I will open this to Silver members as well.

    Thanks for being so generous. That is what I love about MilePoint! Too bad for me that not only am I not yet a Gold member, but my only planned upcoming AA flights are award tickets. Maybe I should make the following my two new goals for the week: 1. Make it to Gold status 2. Book really long AA flights.
