Mostly because of two trips to India -- on in January and one in October -- I qualified for American Airline's "Gold" level. Then a couple of weeks ago, Motorola decided to change preferred airlines (for the first time in more than 17 years as near as I can tell) to United. As part of the deal, I automatically qualify for the equivalent status in United's program.
Of course this will make sure that I don't travel anywhere next year.
Actually, there is a chance that I may have to go to India or China next year to deliver some training or support, but I'm not holding my breath.
