I've also seen the AA attendants mess this up. My mother and I were granted access to the FFD section of LAX when on CX F LAX-HKG last October. I just smiled and took the invitation and didn't say...

This was a great report - loved reading it. I live in SF, and Cape Town is up there as one of my favorite places on earth (along with Beirut and Hong Kong). Couldn't agree with your opinion more - I...

BA Silver actually gets you flagship access at airports with Flagship Lounges on any AA itinerary. And most Alaska Lounges (used to be called boardrooms) take Priority Pass so if you have that I'd...

Correct. Coupons (AA calls them chits) are for premium drinks (mid-tier liquors, better beer or wine). Well liquor, bud light / miller light, and house red / white still free without chits

this is incorrect. As OP notes below - this restriction will not be going away for Alaska as Alaska is a partner of AA. As long as you have an AS marketed OR operated flight you'll be fine.

$600 is on the higher end of what I'd call the normal fare from SFO to KOA in my experience. Typically see that in the $450-600 range, and sometimes the cheaper flights require the interisland to...
