New AA Survey Asks About Flyertalk

Just took a customer service survey, which among questions about in-flight service, entertainment, etc, asked if I visit sites like Flyertalk, if so which ones (Fodors, FT, others) how often and how valuable is the info? Of course my answer was yes, daily and highly valuable.

Q: Have you ever visited an airline traveler community forum website (e.g., FlyerTalk or Fodor's)?

Probably once you check that box the rest of your answers are automatically discarded.

I took the same survey - forgot ot mention the sundaes. Did gripe a bit on the common issues here on FT though. Funny how the choices on how regularly you visit these sites didnt include "Every 5 minutes" :P

Unfortunately it was multiple choice.[/QUOTE]
My co-workers think I've lost it.

Was this an onboard (paper) or online (electronic) survey?

I am beginning to think that there are AA employees who read this board.

But seriously, we both know that many AA folks read FT-- on many levels-- the question is if they are reading mostly for amusement purposes or with the intent of gleaning some insights/ideas/problem areas, etc. Everything I've heard recently is firmly in the former category, unfortunately.

We've also apparently lost both our official AAdvantage member (for all intents and purposes) and, far more importantly, the unofficial AA lurker(s) who have helped many here over the years, at least one of whom has told me-- pretty recently-- "I'm done with FT." And that member has helped dozens of people here over the years-- some with very serious situations, etc. An FT MVP if there ever was one, hopefully who will return at some point.

It's a shame.

They most certainly did-- quite explicitly-- but there's no way of relaying same here w/o causing.. well.. problems.

I would just want to know if it was because of stuff people were saying here on FT, or if it was because of higher-ups at AA telling them to quit. I don't care about the details. But maybe you can't even tell me that.

Oh, that. Most certainly the former. There's certainly no prohibition on looking at FT-- far from it. Posting OTOH is a different matter.
