I ended up emailing the hotel, and indeed they do not offer a points upgrade option, but they did offer to upgrade for 20000 JPY/night. Maybe not strictly speaking worth it, but at least for my dates...

Well it turned out to be a HUCA situation. I back today and was able to book it. I don't know if specifically mentioning to the agent that she should look for the P booking code did the trick or...

Anybody have recent success booking MH First with AAdvantage miles? The BA website shows loads of availability on the KUL-NRT flight for the date I want, but the AAgent I talked to said it wasn't...

Man, that's a bummer. I also am still waiting for the miles from my Sep 4 transfer. For the record, I transferred from Amex around noon on Sep 5 and those were in my account by 7 am on the 7th, so...

My own view is that this was a small issue overall, but a large issue during times when the lounges were already crowded during holidays. Yes, this won't make any difference in alleviating crowding...

Yeah, I have no idea. I don't know why the hotel would need anything other than your name and MLife account number, but the rep I talked to was adamant that she wasn't allowed to book it.

The problem is that I don't think that would work. From what I can tell most of the time the crowding is the result of leisure travelers bringing their families. Most of them wouldn't be affected by...
