Now I dread whenever my next domestic flight would be...not being able to go through the elite line, no lounge access and zero chance of upgrade...boarding late and stuck in the back.

At least for international, I can still use my miles and fly J/C on a cool carrier like OZ or SQ.
LOL I am in the same boat. Last year platinum (still have it this year). Last year flew over 90 segments. This year, well, yea..... I won't even make silver Somehow I managed to keep Platinum Marriott, and for some reason SPG gave me gold until 2015. Starting Jan, my domestic flights are gonna suck..between no more free bag check ins, having to wait in long lines...life will suck.

Since Start gold doesn't offer any kind of upgrades, the nice part of platinum for international 1) first class check in, 2) 3 free bags that are first class tagged, and 3) bypassing the security line (in some airpots) which can save as much as an hour!
