One of the main tipping factors for my decision to do OneWorldMegaDo was the ability to challenge for AA Executive Platinum from my status with United/Continental. I sent an email with a screenshot of my Continental Platinum credentials on Sunday night and received my response today:
Dear Chris, Thank you for your email to American Airlines. I appreciate the opportunity to respond. Thank you for sending us the documentation we requested. In appreciation of your participation in the 2012 oneworld MegaDo, we have registered you for a fee-waived AAdvantage elite challenge. To earn AAdvantage Executive Platinum® membership through February 2013, simply travel 20,000 elite qualifying miles between October 9, 2011 and January 13, 2012 on flights marketed and operated by American Airlines, American Eagle, or AmericanConnection®. To date, you have already earned 12,375 elite qualifying miles toward your goal. Once you complete this challenge, expect your credentials in three to five weeks. Of course, your new benefits will be effective immediately, once your account reflects that you've met the challenge criteria. We hope you enjoy the oneworld MegaDo! See you in January! Again, thank you for giving me the opportunity to respond. I look forward to assisting you in the future. Regards, American Airlines
With my two trips to San Francisco booked, I’ll be sitting comfortably with Executive Platinum in early January. The real challenge will be requalifying for United 1K and AA EXP next year with 200k flight miles.
