I am a CK (soon to be was) at AA and switched over to DL earlier this year. Couldn't be happier. A lot of the points have been covered here already, so won't repeat them, but will stress that when...

Err, I care about the IFE. And it is certainly one of the major reasons (though not the only one) for me having moved most of my business from AA to DL this past year. Even though I carry my laptop,...

Agree with a lot of what you're saying. For me SEA-JFK is one of the many routes I need to fly, so while B6 would work on that route, it wouldn't on my other routes. DL gives me better nationwide...

I was hoping to go to the CK event in Dallas but couldn't make time. I may send an email to the Concierge Key email and see what response I get

Yes. I've moved most of my flying to DL. Even without the schedule cut, a tired old 737 without IFE is no match for DL's Delta One seats. Between JFK and SEA, two of the four nonstops each way are...

From what I've heard qualification criteria could vary by location. DFW will likely have a higher threshold given its status as a fortress hub

I concur. After a red-eye a lounge with a shower prevents the need to check into a hotel for two hours.

If the spend you're describing is not worthy of CK, then there is something wrong with the program. I have made CK with a lot less.

I don't believe they gave it a chance to try and find out. There is no way I am getting on the 763 for a three hour domestic flight (due to op. issues) let alone a seven hour TATL hop (op issues and...

NZ 5 coming up on 8/23. Bid USD 880 to go from PE -> J. Cleared five days out. No status on NZ. In retrospect probably could have gotten away with bidding lower, but still happy that it cleared.

I see no problem with this. Doug was answering an employee in an internal forum and spoke with candor. I quite appreciate that. Instead whoever leaked this to the public ought to be fired.

You make some very good points. While, I haven't faced the 319 issue given my routes, I have had to travel on the 737MAX which to me is also a step backwards and tells me that AA leadership isn't...

Flew the 7M8 between LGA and MIA last week and the Wifi didn't work at all. The FA's commented saying that the wifi was very unreliable on the 7M8. Sucks that they took away the TV screens too!

While 2) is a no the way you have stated it, what you could potentially do is change your mom-in-law to the AA flight that you're on (ticket change fees may apply) and add an SWU for her.

I got this, but for 12k; mine is called CK12K.

My spend this year has been rather low (relatively) - around $25K, so it's probably fair for them to ask me to spend a bit more.

Fair question.

My flights are usually last minute and based on where I mostly fly to, it's just beyond sensible driving distance (given traffic). That said I have driven many a times on...

I am quite sure they would get a discounted upgrade offer if they ask at DOH. On my flight two days ago, J was only half full.

I have on my flight from ZNZ to DOH received an upgrade for $250. I...

The 767s need to go. Period. They are the least competitive planes AA is flying - both domestically and internationally. Personally, I go out of my way to avoid them. If I had to fly DFW-AMS, I would...

While I am not sure what AA uses, actual flown miles would make a lot more sense to me than EQMs. EQMs are pretty meaningless in this context due to the various multipliers.

While, I don't know...

Are you expecting them to send a revised application to the US DOT sometime soon?
