Wow, thanks. There is opportunity here -- can start elsewhere for a little extra. HNL-DFW-MAD-DFW-HNL, all lie-flat 777s, is $2500 roundtrip, for 34,996 EQMs.

See the other thread about all Saver availability being (temporarily, it seems) gone.

Maybe OP's AAdvantage number contains an unlucky number, or some 13s or something. Or a 666. Or maybe OP is Chinese and has a bunch of 4s. There's all kinds of superstition out there. Just last night...

Shill much? The legacy AS seats barely recline. Perhaps you had an ex-VX plane, but AS doesn't compete with the legacies for hard product.

And the redemption rate on CX may be lower... but the...

Anyone have any intel on this property? Was hoping to stay here in early August but it doesn't appear to be available for booking yet. Property's website is nothing much either: La Caserne Chanzy ?...

Oof the gulab jamun is way too syrupy and sickly sweet. The fruit plates with raspberries etc and baklava squares are a nice touch though.

Foil thing is "naan" aka tough chewy pita bread.

That seems like a reasonable resolution.

"If you book AA flight numbers then you earn AA EQD" doesn't mean "If you don't, then you earn nothing."

Nor is similar logic ever availing except against the illogical.

Please name the property. You're not actually casting any blame if we can't figure out whom you're blaming.

The Grass Is Not Always Greener (AA EXP Samples DL F After Many Years Away)

Long story short, I was DL Platinum long before there was Diamond, but have been flying reasonably heavily with US-then-AA for ~8 years. Flew Delta once in 2015 (DCA-JFK-SVO) and maybe once in 2012...

You could transfer 93,000 Marriott points to AA. It's a 3:1 transfer ratio but Marriott will add 5,000 miles (to any transfer 60k or more), giving you 36,000 AA miles. You can buy up to 50,000...

Ugh, thanks for the merge.

Delta is useless if I'm trying to check bags through to JL JFK-NRT (not to mention I'd have to pay for the flight).

The (one) BWI-JFK flight is too late to meet JL3....

Did AA drop DCA-JFK for the summer?

From June 6 through August 19, all the DCA-JFK flights appear to be gone... except one flight a day on 7/3, 7/4, and 5 Saturdays.

Was this announced? Mistake?

The problem for me is I had a...

The information in this thread is nonsensical. The 35% figure is for redeemable miles, not EQM. For flights on booked into AA flight numbers, you earn EQMs as if it were an AA-operated flight....

The key language in the T&Cs is "Free Night Award," which covers certificates (CC, Globalist, Brand Explorer, etc.) and points redemptions, but not Points/Cash and not points upgrades.
