July 2001 is a long time ago. The details may be no longer available.

Post your inquiry in the "Historical Flight Data - delays, cancellations, registration/tail numbers, etc." thread in the Travel Tools forum.

Thanks for the Information board

Finding this board has been a huge help! Almost missed it. As the mod said, FT is huge and I was lost.

Just giving my thanks!

Exclamation AA Trip Credit Refund or Extension

Hi! I hope this isn’t off-topic, but I’ve been in this forum for a while now looking for info on AA Trip Credit. Can anyone give me a link or guide to the right thread? I’m trying to reclaim a credit that we couldn’t use because my wife was pregnant and COVID restricted our travel in 2022 and 2023. The credit has been expired for almost a year now, and I’m wondering if there’s a way to refund or extend it. Thanks!

Don't see how COVID restricted your travel in 2022 and 2023. COVID did restrict travel in 2020 and 2021.

Purchased from the airline?
If LH flight number-->https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/luft...iles-more-495/
If AC flight number-->https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/air-...?daysprune=100
If purchased from a travel agent talk to them

Brand new to the site, bear with me Not sure where to post this...
I need to purchase about $16K worth of Delta flights for a group Africa trip departing June '24. I am currently Platinum on Delta, but my '24 status is 'Member'. I am looking for a strategy to leverage this purchase for maximum benefit given the newly announced Skymiles rules. Wait until January to buy the tickets? Get a specific Delta CC to purchase on? Etc.
Thank you!!

Questions about Delta should be posted in the Delta forum. https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/delt...-skymiles-665/ There are numerous threads there about how people are approaching the recently announced program changes. Note, that any MQDs for travel in June 2024 will count for 2025 elite status regardless of when you purchase the ticket. Any credit card spend will count towards the year the spend is made. For 2024 elite status, credit card spend is only relevant to status earning if you hit $25000. $16000 in credit card spend next year will not do much.
