Question - being part of OneWorld, can this also earn EQM on AA or does it need to be a codeshare?

Ugh that's a long flight to have guaranteed economy...tough to pull the trigger for me personally.

Great find

So you aren't willing to take 2 flights in coach to ensure upgrades in the future....and they say the elites are over entitled....

Only .5x EQP but 2x miles for RDM if you have AA status.

These aren't just 2 flights... 5 hour flights in coach (when you are already EXP) aren't on the top of the pile.

If you're asking for renewal though, 178 for a transcon is a great price.

Any AA match SAN-BOS or SEA-BOS ??

BTW, I see some BOS-SAN fares for $178 but not much love for BOS-SEA...

Does AS even recognize ExPlt status from AA as it relates to upgrades?

I've done coach on transcon and it's not one that I look forward to..but being a sucker for a very low cpm, I might not be able to control myself

Nope, no upgrades for AA elites on the Alaska bus.

If one is a DL elite, AS SAN/BOS F cabin has been having a lot of last minute buy ups to F so could be easy upgrade. One Saturday there were only 8 people in F

BTW I ended up buying a one way to SAN. Hopefully i will find a UA sale for the return as the AS return price is too high. Its good either way as i'm only booked 2500 mi short of MVPG for next year. As a backup it was only 12.5K award miles in coach for the sunday return

or check out the DL F fare that CokeandTaco posted in the good deals premium thread...might work from SAN or nearby airport?

I like having a chance at an upgrade. I've taken nine flights in coach this year already to ensure future upgrades, thank you very much. There will be other fares, this one also doesn't fit my schedule.
