with SWU benefit cut in half, RDMs for economy fares will be drastically lower and hugh devaluation of biz class awards, next year it hardly makes sense to continue with AA for us. Mostly it will be better to wait for some occasional deal on premium fares and just go with those.
That's very much my approach and I suspect that of many others. I've been EXP/Plat continuously for the past 15 years but that will end when my current status expires. AAdvantage has been good for me over that period but it now makes much less sense to continue, which is a shame.

Like ENycSea, this is a game I don't want to be a part of anymore - not if AA can pull the rug out from under us at their choosing.
Precisely.
