How about you existing cardmembers? Are you excited to finally see a new elite status benefit added? Granted it doesn't replace the lost Cathay Pacific status but it is a nice addition especially seeing the card will likely lose Starwood in a year or two. For me I already have Gold Status until 2017 however my wife will definitely upgrade her HHonors status now!
