AA.com changes: The game is over....

Perhaps this thread was the impetus (), but I noticed today that AA.com (after timing out) only shows my name and status... no more miles until I log in.

Maybe there are other enhancements about....

No idea what you're talking about

EDITED TO ADD THE FOLLOWING:
You are correct, but my page did not change until sometime this afternoon?

Earlier it didn't show the mileage balance on the opening page, but now it appears to be back. All it said before was "Executive Platinum" for me, with no numbers next to it.

I also noticed some changes on the "my reservations" page, when clicking a reservation, the reservation comes with a drop down for check-in, for Adults or children 12 and under.

Pretty minor details, IMO. And I don't mind others can't see my miles if they should happen visit aa.com if I forget to log off (hasn't ever happened, but...) I also learned I'd better get my axle in gear to burn some miles - my counter says I have "Total Available Award Mileage: 1,000,205." Lady JD has 701,861, so it will soon be time to hit the airways.

1,011,449 here (after two 25K bonuses). Seems I have an axle to grind as well.

Cheers.

No doubt. Congratulations, brp. May you and your nuova sposata travel many, many EQP-earning miles together.

It shows status and miles if you are currently logged in. If you have timed out or are not logged in, it only shows status.

I actually don't really like this change.

May I ask why? I would prefer that most of my personal information (ok, how many miles I have is not hugely personal, but still) not be generally available. I don't need to know on a regular basis...and I can login if I do. Just surious as to why you don't like this.

Cheers.

Naw..she's becoming as much of a mileage whore as I am. Not miles, really, but EQM. Rather than helping to burn, she'll just be accumulating her own. We already have enough booked for both to reach EXP, and my 128K (so far) will get two extra eVIPs. And thanks to both of you for the kind wishes. It's interesting how I've been so close to meeting both of you...and not yet.

Cheers.
