On my Windows desktop machine using Firefox, I go to my bookmark for aa.com, or I manually type aa.com and I get this message:

Sorry, the website validate-sjc.www.aa.com cannot be found

It resolves to this URL:
http ://finder.cox.net/main?InterceptSource=0&ClientLocation=us&Participa ntID=96e687opkbv4scrood8k84drs6gw5duf&FailureMode= 1&SearchQuery=&FailedURI=http%3A%2F%2Fvalidate-sjc. http://www.aa.com%2F%3Fv_locale%3Den...n=0&method=GET
I can't seem to do anything. Manually deleting cookies and history has had no impact.

I know aa.com is up, as I can access it via my MacBook on the same wireless network.

Any ideas how I can get past this and connected to the AA website on my primary computer?

Thank you!
I was getting the same thing on Win7 and Chome, even though I'm at a hotel and not on a Cox Cable line. On my iPad it works fine.

Try aa.com/checkin which seems to bypass whatever nonsense is tripping that "validate.sjc" stuff. No idea what that is.
