Miles may be the first Executive Platinum Monkey EVER
Man oh mannnnnnn – I haven’t seen a happier monkey. We took our qualifying flight from Chicago to LA a couple days ago and now it’s official. Miles may be the first Executive Platinum Monkey EVER! I honestly can’t even imagine what he’d do if he became Concierge Key ( the super secret, but not that secret special sauce status). We are both looking forward to experiencing what ‘top tier’ status is all about and how many of those coveted upgrades we actually get.

I’m also looking forward to earning more RDM per $
That equates to 11 points per dollar.
And visiting first class lounges all over the world regardless of the cabin I’m flying in.
I LOOOOOOOOOVED the Japan Airlines First Class lounge at Narita. The sushi was incred. I really wanna check out the Cathay Pacific 1st Class lounges at HKG.
