Out of the blue. When I saw AA calling, I thought they were going to tell me that there was some change to my flight. There was, but not one I expected.

I just got a call from AA. They are giving me a free upgrade to PE on my flight DFW-GRU tomorrow. Both window and aisle seats were open.

With all the news about bad treatment of customers, it is...

I've got a flight DFW-GRU next Wednesday. I'll report on whether there were open seats in PE if I was still in Economy.

When I did the same flight in March, I got the free PE, and I was even...

I just talked to AA about something odd I saw on some flights (DFW-HKG) - no upgrades offered. I called the EXP desk to inquire and the person I spoke with said that even though there were lots of...

IF true, that would be a good thing. Otherwise there might be an EXP riot!

They mean $200 each way, and that is a sale price. I just priced DFW-GRU-DFW.

$1695 economy, $2357 PE for the round trip.

Premium Economy is now on sale. I flew in that class DFW-GRU-DFW a couple of weeks ago.

The seat and food are roughly equivalent to domestic first class, though the wine quality is at a lower...

Right. It has been a while since you were let down slowly. Now it is "what have you done for me lately?" The AA FF program has certainly gone that way.

I didn't know that AA matched to the EXP level. I restarted flying United a few years back and they only gave me a PLT match, not 1K.

Actually, you get a free drink and a snack when in coach, whether Y or Q. They have a list of ExePlts and so they should ask you if you want something, then not ask you to pay for it. Even if I got...

I believe that you would have to be on a BA ticket, probably international.

I wonder if status matches and other such offers in 2017 will include a minimum spend requirement along with the miles?

UA PLT has the same 75K mile & $9K spend qualification (which can be waived by credit card spending - expect the same from AA), but it is marginally better because it includes 2 Regional Premier...

Right now the EQD charts have not been revealed, but I would suspect that the base rate will be 10%, rising to a max of 20% (what Lifetime AirPass members earn). For DFW-PEK-DFW (about 14K miles)...

A big advantage with Lifetime is that the yearly spend requirement is gone. So it might be a good thing to do the push for Lifetime PLT on AA, then go back to flying UA....unless a super deal comes...

Adios AA

Pretty awful all the way around. I'll hit a million on United this year, and I already have 2 million+ on AA. This year my 130,000 AA miles flown will still keep me in ExecPLT land, but earn me...

If your partner is not on the same record as you, then his status will be used to rank order. So every person down to Gold gets in before him.

Call the EXP desk and see if they can link the...

Yep, just how I felt when UA went this way and the trip to Sao Paulo that earned me 24,000 RDMs on a previous trip suddenly dropped to 4200 RDMs this year.

I think that I will have to start opening and closing (after 13 months) some credit card accounts....the ones with "30,000 RDM bonus...etc."

A few of those a year might make up for the loss of...

UA won't match to 1K. I did it to get started again on UA (I had flown them and Continental) and get my million miles. As long-time EXP they matched me right away - to PLT. Wasn't too bad. 30%...
