I don't recall them also saying, "But that means we're going to enforce 'divorced' segments" and not allow you to take inventory that is clearly available by segment. Your tweets I believe are the only documentation of this "enhancement."
The bloggers fell for that line from AA's PR folk hook, line and sinker, you're most certainly right about that! They all now know they were duped by AA, I'm sure.

But the reported thing here is at LEAST as old as my tweet on the subject and actually a lot older than that for sure:


I'm sure there must be examples in the thread on the subject:
More award availability restricted by married segments / connections

Maybe I'm missing something-- always possible.
