BNA allows you to carry alcohol to-go on the secure side of the airport... that's the only one in the US that comes to mind. Kinda surprising that LAS doesn't allow it. I think I was able to grab a...

Does the wavier apply to a flight that has an AA leg, that is booked though AS? The verbiage about ticketing airline has me a bit confused.
Doesn't matter to me as I'm MVPG, but a friend wants to...

Probably just a system connection glitch... hopefully not related to Emirates wanting a bigger partner (https://onemileatatime.com/emirates-us-airline-partner/).

While I don't generally like the idea of being able to "buy" EQM without flying I think it's a great solution given the extraordinary circumstances of what is happening this year.

Given the cap at...

Yeah, they could've gone "effective today" to prevent unnecessary mileage runs... but maybe full month was just easier for a policy, or they figured if you haven't cancelled a trip in the next two...

The whole point of this is to help people feel secure that they do not need to fly for the rest of the year if they don't want to.. so yeah... that's kinda the point.

There will be offers to help...

I think 6 months is a nice compromise. Our travel may not turn back to normal in 6 months so still may see diminished value, but its effectively half off a renewal. And gives those with active...

They're basically just saying "rolled-over" 75Ks won't get a free 50k miles. If you're about to earn it, you'll earn it... or it's possible they'll 'lower the bar' and make it easier to...

Very nice arrangement from AS.

The rollover is a nice extra boost to 2021 and if things get back to normal this summer/fall EQM bonuses could encourage me to go for 75k instead of my usual gold.

The problem with that is not everyone travels the year equally. For example for the last 5 years, I do 60%-75% of my flying during July-Dec.
I may not get the chance do to that this summer/fall,...

Flying for Fun has a point... we don't know if we'll be flying regularly again in summer/fall, or if we're waiting on a vaccine which likely will be Q1 2021 at the earliest.

Until we know more,...

I'm not about to buy RDM right now due to the potential for upcoming devaluation with OneWorld, and who knows when we'll be able to redeem them internationally before then.
