I am finally there. I am elite! I have elite status on Continental Airlines. This year, I promised I would stick with one airline in order to gain enough miles to give me some type of perk. My flight to Seattle a couple days ago earned me the 326 + miles I needed to obtain the 25,000+ miles to gain the silver Elite status.
What does Elite Status look like. Here is a screen shot of my account at continental.com:
It also changes at least one thing on some other pages. I now see I am automatically added to the upgrade list. I know I won’t see those upgrades, because they go to platinum and then gold members before silver ones, like me. But at least it is there:
My complimentary upgrade feature is automatically on.
Why am I writing all of this? Because I wanted this type of information when I was researching it and no one blogged it. So maybe this will help someone in the future looking for this information.
In any event, tomorrow I get to board the plane on the blue carpet. I think my life is now complete.
