Has everyone gotten the bag tags? I got the chocolates a week or two ago, but I haven't yet seen this year's bag tags yet which I think are a pretty cool collectible. Or do you only get those the...

Good to hear, have flown both aircraft a decent amount including the AA 787 specifically ORD-LHR, and it is the right choice!

+1 for waiting to shower until you get to the F lounge in T5. I would just head out of T3 after getting my luggage and take the heathrow express to T5 (which is a free trip, although you have to get...

If you are flying AA you will be flying into Terminal 3. With a US passport you can use either the e-gates or the non-EU passport line in which the UK no longer even stamps your passport (you still...

Echoing some of the comments above, it's purely up to the utility each individual gets out of it, I often pay for domestic F because:

1) (by far the most important to me) I'm fairly tall with...

Say what you will about Project Oasis and MX issues, but where AA has stood out to me pretty significantly over the last 5+ years has been premium cabins.

I feel your pain, I have done many terminal transfers at LHR (especially in my pre-CK days) and the T3/T4 walk/train/walk is brutal. Luckily last week I was met upon deplaning in T4 from an LY...

If I had paid for a J fare and they tried to board me into Y from ORD-NRT (a 13 hour flight...) I would have said "do better" as well, that's absurd.

There's probably meaningful negative selection...

If you're quite tall like me, the F seat is longer and a little more roomy around the feet, which makes it more comfortable for me. Also the thin mattress pad makes a small positive difference. You'd...

This has only happened to me on Delta (out of the US 3), I agree it's a nice touch. Seems very genuine and the captains have always been in a good mood when they've done it. I usually try to...

Same for me, renewed through 2021 this morning. Was prepared to not be renewed since I've traveled a little less this year, so far only 44k EQD (vs. ~80k last year), 71k EQM, 19 EQS, but almost all...

Having flown both frequently, I'd pay for Jet Blue (especially if you can get a throne seat). I don't particularly like the old BE Diamond seats in business on AA because of the footwells and storage...

As has been said, I think the value changes case-to-case, but there's still significant value to be had, especially to Asia. I have found my AA miles fairly valuable for international leisure...
