I starting playing the game and was moving along nicely, then it got "hung up." I thought it was my computer (and it might be), so I went back to the page to try a fresh start and got "service unavailable."

We're not talking a large amount of miles here, but I sure hope that I receive credit for the tasks that I already completed because I wouldn't be surprised if the game locks me out from trying to pick up where I left off.

EDITED TO ADD:
Logging out of Facebook and logging back in seems to have helped and I was able to pick up where I left off ^

Most of these AA things usually are. But that hasn't stopped me from doing them and still earning miles.

As American Airlines is still operating as a distinct entity, this question is being moved over to the pre-merger American Airlines forum in the existing thread.

Please note the sticky at the top of the consolidated thread which is titled Welcome to the New American Airlines Forum! PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING. With all of the changes about, it is important to know where to post, and reading that thread before posting will help get you in the right place.

Your understanding is appreciated.

Just so happens I have a US flight booked during the travel window, and it goes to one of the new destinations. An easy 900 miles. I just hope that my point requirement is set low enough that I qualify for the extra 2500 miles. If so, I'll then get the fly & earn 500 bonus for doing something I was going to do anyway.

Ughhh! Does this mean one has to sign-up on Facebook in order to participate? That is something I have quite proudly avoided doing.

Down for me too. "We're experiencing extremely high traffic and are temporarily unavailable".

AA can't get elastic hosting with Amazon Cloud services or something?
