I am a gold member on AA and will make my status again this year with about 28000 miles.
My question is:
Is it worth $1000 to make platinum for next year? I just received an email from AA that any flights between now and June 16th will count for double miles towards status for next year. I have found a flight from BOS - SEA via DFW for around $380. The RT will be worth about 13000 miles with the bonus, plus $100 for a hotel in SEA. I would have to fly it twice to make the 50000 miles for platinum status. It is the cheapest and seems to be the easiest way to make the required miles. Should I go for it, or settle for gold status for next year? Thanks for your help.
