    Lucky, thank you for your report on how to earn AA Executive Platinum using the US Airways Challenge! I have done that and expect the 8 AA SWU in the second quarter when AA and US merge. If I flew 100.000 miles this year, would I receive another 8 AA SWU (valid until Feb 2017)? If yes, does it matter if I credit the miles to AA or US? I would prefer US since I have got the Chairman status but I wonder if I can receive 8 AA SWU for flying 100.000 miles this year in addition to the 8 AA SWU from the AA/US merger? Thank you for your insights!

    @ Gerd -- If you requalify then you would indeed earn eight systemwide upgrades for the following year. It doesn't matter which airline you credit to, as mileage totals will be combined in the second quarter.
