Please familiarize yourself with these ground rules. Posts that do not conform to these rules will be summarily removed (without notice to the poster).

AA: "Upgrades are void if sold or advertised for sale for cash or other considerations. Members may designate another passenger to use their upgrades."

  • Asking for SWU passes is not permitted! Donors will post here, and members are welcome to communicate via PM from there. If you don't see an open request, don't ask for one.

  • In order to comply with AAdvantage T&C, SWU must given freely, with no strings attached. Requests for money or any other consideration, whether in the clear or via PM, are not allowed.

  • Out of respect of our generous donors, please follow their instructions and contact them with the information they request.

  • Donors can ultimately make the choice of recipient (tenured/contributive member, longer flight itineraries, international vs. domestic, etc.).

  • Recipients are solely and entirely responsible for the payment of any fees or taxes associated with the use of a gifted SWU (e.g. United Kingdom Air Passenger Duty).

  • 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.

Thanks everyone!

A quick note:

Many thanks to all the generous members of our community!!! ^:-:

Even as FlyerTalk has grown larger, I am always impressed with how we help one another - be it with creative award solutions or sharing travel experiences or gifting SWUs.

3 SWUs left to give away

I managed to give away 1 of the 4 after posting a few days ago...3 more to go if there are any takers... I'm happy to try to use on flights without instant availability. If J looks open at this stage there's a good chance you'll clear off the waitlist. Anyone flying in next 4 days (apart from ex-LHR), PM me with PNR/name/email/flight number...

Thank you to all of you kind souls who are so generously offering your SWUs. I should know this but I don't - they just have to be confirmed by 2/28, right? They can be used for a flight AFTER 2/28 as long as the SWU is applied by then? My wife and I are flying via PEK in early March and have a fighting chance, but I don't want to ask for SWUs that won't clear by then

Not impossible, but highly highly unlikely these days to apply an expiring SWU after Feb deadline.

Fingers crossed for y'all ...
I just want to thank andyr for his kindness and generosity. He was kind enough to hook me up for my flight (within minutes, at that!)

Really appreciate it. Thanks to all who have been generously gifting their SWUs to fellow FTers. ^
