fiction? lol.. Your use of words are quite amusing.. irregardless, this is at least the second time AA has done this promo this year alone.. yes it common for AA to make a 2 for 1 EQM promo.. but twice a year? Obviously it would need to do something to prevent customers from switching to Delta with all the hype surrounding the merger... did you expect anything else?

And don't get me wrong, I fly both AA and NWA/Delta and side with neither, in fact I prefer AAdvatage's redemption options, but this is clearly a good way to entice people to fly with them and keep AA competitive, whether it be directly in response to Delta or just a coincidental two-time promotion given the financial crisis and the need to encourage travel
