List of 10k Bonus Point Hotels?

Does anyone have a list of where the 10k bonus point hotels are, especially in the USA? As I'm looking to try to secure Spire, that's the quickest way. At this point, I'm just stumbling around...

Actually this cant be more wrong lately. Outside of 1 or 2 flights, all of my Asia trips the past 2-3 years (NRT and PEK) have been fairly light in the back. But I fly in *great* months like January,...

This is 100% now based on EQD running average. My upgrade % is sitting at about 95% since that change. I cant complain at all.

Paging JonNYC...

My assumption is yes if they did not "ban" you from the airline, just banning you from the AAdvantage program.

But remember if you reticket later (like SWU clears) then it reverts back to a normal ticket. And good luck arguing with AAdvantage that it's a special fare (unlike AA Vacations which AA specifically...

I dabble in nature and wildlife photography, so I tend to travel (especially to South Africa) with a very large camera backpack plus a rollaboard. Technically there is no way in hell my backpack is...

One word of advice. Dont do this at 1am after an 18 hour day and "sit down on the bed" for a few minutes. You could wake up 5 hours later with a very steamy room. Not that I would know anything...

Yes I was told that EF is not a dynamic searching tool, it does the "screen scrapes"/"queries" to the different GDS systems at scheduled intervals and then uses that database for our queries. So you...

No there doesnt have to be a physical seat, but it has to be 24 hours in advance. So you cant use this as a last minute, switch flight things.

Never had a problem with this. Just swap yourself on boarding and when the FA asks your mom, have her tell the FA you swapped.

Nope. Keep in mind an A330 shows up in Phoenix for Hawaii, which has to come from somewhere. My assumption is that it comes from CLT on a turn. So AA could also fund the crews for PHX similarly, with...

Not surprising at all. My experience with TWOV is painful at best with AA. I done it at both DFW and ORD, and its ugly. All 4 times involved assuring the agents to check Timatic and put China as the...

Yup that's the new policy change for Asia... remove all access to the lounge unless you pay for a lounge room (no just get upgraded into it) or buy access.

I guess its all on preference. Of the J seats (which I've now been on all), I prefer the rearward J in the 788 over all.

I really dont like the 77W J seat. At all. The seat as a bed is good, but i...
