That moment, when both your better-half and you look at each other and say in unison - "let's take flights with longer layover in HKG so we can enjoy The Pier more".

Interesting - out of many AA flights in Y, there has been one single time I (as AY Plat) received some acknowledgement from the crew. For the most part my take is that they assume that anyone who is EXP has been upgraded and they do not care to look at their handhelds or anything.

I was upgraded from Main Cabin Extra to Domestic First a couple of weeks ago, travelling as Finnair Plus Platinum (Charlotte to JFK). I was already seated when the flight attendant asked if I could move to First and handed me an updated boarding pass. Flight was fully booked and someone else took my original place in Main Cabin Extra. The first time this happened to me at American. Otherwise, I have never received any special treatment onboard as OWE when travelling domestic economy, but I usually travel on flights shorter than 2 hours and they don't have a lot of service on those flights.

My first J op-up was with AA, due to massive overbooking, and it was no domestic.

I have only once been treated as ExPlat on board. That seems more like the exception than the rule.

I was upgraded once to domestic first on AA when the plane was practically empty. Only few seats taken in the back, me being alone in the front. I have also had a few other op-ups with AA when traveling as AY plat, these with full plane.

Draw for all adult Plat/Lumo members to win a trip for 2 to LAX to celebrate the new route, flights and 4 nights included. I guess you all have the same email from AY today..

The same email has a promo for entrance to Taste of Bubbles with monies + points.

I guess they didn't bother as they know you'd never stay more than the turnaround at the airport!

Blimey - I got this offer. I apparently must be a platinum member today.
