  • This thread is NOT for the discussion of ethics, entitlement, or nomination of charities/groups as recipients. (Donating instruments for use in charity auctions or as prizes is prohibited by AAdvantage T&C.)

  • If anybody offers to sell, buy, barter or trade SWU by PM, please contact the moderators immediately, as this is a violation of AAdvantage and FlyerTalk rules. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

Cool SWU giveaway (strictly freely given - no quid pro quo)

I'm starting an early Christmas give away with the 4 SWU I'm not going to use before they expire in 1/31/2018.

Conditions:

1. Upgrade must be for Y->J. International sectors will get priority and J->F requests will be ignored;

2. You must be a FT member with at least 50 posts;

3. You must provide by PM the following details: PNR, full name(s), itinerary, contact info and proof the upgrade is available (EF screenshots or similar);

4. All upgraded flights must depart before 1/31/2018 when the SWU expires;

5. You are responsible for the taxes (if any) in the upgraded cabin;

Messages that don't comply with the above conditions will be ignored and I'm not going to explain my decisions.

Update: all SWU used

You are a nice person to do this. I still have 2 and plan to use them so I do not need any. But I am sure you will have a lot of potentially interested FT people.

It is generous. My father and I are travelling ORD-LAX-HKG-NRT-ORD this next week, but sadly there is no C space available. Have enough miles for the outbound upgrade, but not for the return.

Thanks for the giveaway, but it requires a subscription to EF, which I do not have. May I ask what would be "similar" in this context?

There's no actually comparable tool with legitimate access to the information to my knowledge, but you can access EF on a five day trial or subscribe month to month as well as annually.

Doesn't aa.com also show SWU availability?

You can get EF trial for 5 days. AA.com booking engine was also showing if upgrades were available for a route, but haven't used it in while.

PS: 3 to go.

Very Generous

Hi!

I don't need the SWUs, but I appreciate your generosity. I usually do the same with my "extras." In the past few years, I've called the EXP line and asked them to search particular flights on a given date and to find worthy passengers. They have been great about finding appropriate passengers. I have also gone to desks for particualr flights when I'm in transit. I've found the agents are very happy to assist. I haven't used flyertalk, because I wanted to surprise a non-frequent flyer.

Again, generous use of your benefit.

Can't use these either since the rest of my travel this year is for business and can book F for it. But also wanted to say that's a very generous offer.
