Travel enough and you start to notice the difference between thehavesand the穷人. That is, those travelers whohaveelite status (and the perks that come along with it) and those that don’t. If you’re in the latter part of that乘客资料, you might be asking yourself questions like: What are the perks of signing up for a frequent flyer program? How can I receive complimentary upgrades? Is there a secret password foraccessing an airline’s lounge? Is it really worth it to pursue the top-tier status?
With these questions in mind, our team set out to better understand not only what it means to have elite status with a US-based airline, but what we could be missing having say, Gold status versus Platinum. In this multi-part series, we answer these questions—and more—about domestic carriers’ loyalty programs.
