I have a flight on AA next week. No AA status, CP on US. Flight was booked and I couldn't change my FF# online but I called this AM and agent did it on the phone. She said my status was now...

Why is combining necessary if you can get reciprocal credit now? Just pick a program and book everything to that program. The only problem is if you are elite on both and want upgrades. That...

And I haven't heard an official peep about this from the airline. Delay?

Just an FYI and YMMV, but so far I've had some success and sympathetic ears of AA GA's by showing my US CP card. At least as far as getting AA preferred seating.

I remain hopeful that the merged airline will completely abandon the AA system and use US Airways -- it's much easier to understand and implement and frankly it's much more controllable by the...

I've heard this a few times but it makes no sense to me. US CP has a higher requirement than AA EXP.

US CP: 100k miles or 120 segments
AA EXP: 100k miles or 100 segments

AA has a weird...

2013 status extended one month until March 30, 2014

Nice, just got the email. Appears to be everyone, because of merger. Not sure why it is March 30 and not March 31, 2014.

This definitely means I won't buy up since it'd only be for 6 months -- I...

AA's policies are about as relevant as Qatar's and Singapore Air. AA management is only marginally in control of their airline for the next 12 months, and has zero influence or control over US.

29 miles is not a soft landing. They will round up, but I would call. Play agent roulette if you have to, someone will find a manager to do it. But I'd wait until February honestly. Worst case...

Million Miles status with combined US/AA miles [Merged Thread]

I have about 400k AA miles. I am not sure about my US balance but I'd guess something close to (but below) 1 million.

If AA is keeping the million miles program, it seems pretty clear they'd have...

After reading about the AA program, I feel pretty confident that the new program will mostly resemble US. Because when the US execs read how AA's program works, they're going to be like... "WHAT THE...

Interesting, you can buy up from zero but not to Exec Platinum -- in fact you can't really buy up to EXP at all unless you are <10k short. And it's expensive even if you are just a little short. It...

I am not buying up this year -- too much uncertainty in terms of routes and what the FF program will be like. I don't think AA will cancel the buyup program at all, it's a cash cow. My guess is...

I find it extraordinarily unlikely you will be kicked out, even if it is 1 person bringing 5 more. The TSA agent has no idea you are on different PNRs. Just show up and say "these 5 people are my...

Any news on DCA divestments?

Haven't heard a thing but the settlement made it seem like they would happen fast.

Not really -- upgrade has to clear at least 2 days out. No check-in upgrades, which these days are often what I get on a paid ticket, even as a CP and a wide open flight.

Status on AA (as a US preferred) before systems integration

Has there been any talk about if we'll receive benefits on AA before the complete systems integration? I'm a US CP with 0 status on AA. I just booked 3 different flights on AA in Jan/Feb 2014 on...

After the merger (pre-consolidation of FF), when did UA/CO give reciprocal benefits?

Just curious because I assume AA/US may look to that example of how to act. I'm a US Chairman's flying on AA for a few flights in Jan/Feb and I wonder if they will extend me standard benefits like...

Merger is closing December 2013 (that's very soon!)

To me that was the most surprising news today. They're closing in 3-7 weeks. I realize that doesn't mean operations, etc. are merged for some time after that (a year? 6 months?) but wow, that's...
