Along with other "tweaks" they have made to the program, it's basically defunct for the reasons millions signed up for it. They and Citibank continue to stimulate the public to get their credit card, etc with the hope of getting something of value- it's plain deception. I've expressed my exasperation to AA, with no avail.

I hope all of you will e-mail the head of AAdvantage and express your anger.
I agree 100%. And when I hear the flight attendants hawking the credit card, lying about it being good for two free flights, it's all I can do to not shout out "liar, liar, pants on fire".

And yet countless FTers in this very forum have been literelly begging for the opportunity to spend even more money on credit cards, racking up even more worthless AA miles, in order to get an EQD waiver to qualify for status.

The beat goes on and sometimes it gets harder to ascertain who the real idiots in this game are...
