AA Updates (AAdvantage Miles and Database)

Interesting things as of late in regards to converting earned AA 500 mile e-upgrades into 2500 bonus miles per upgrade earned as part of the 4 upgrades for 10,000 actual flight miles. I have been getting a little push back in the month of March in converting these for 1 principal reason -- namely, most of my travel in March was domestic (although I am historically an AA international passenger). I never use AA e-upgrades domestically, so after conferencing with AAdvantage Customer Service they credit it. I hope this does not indicate an upcoming change in AAdvantage rules about converting e-upgrades.

Also, a small review of the new AA.com website by a hacker-type friend of mine revealed that the new AA.com website will be querying AA databases more comprehensively and intelligently about a series of things.

American's policy appears to have always been that if you can use the e-upgrades domestically then you shouldnt be trading them in.

My last swap of upgrades for miles was approved because I just happened to be working on a project which was required me to fly primarily on American Eagle which prevented me from using the upgrades.
