Re: In a World of Hurt

Not too many options. Even many routings to ANC and DUB leave you short. Maybe try the following 47 minutes of paradise in HNL? If you get the 500 mile minimum, the following for $1619 should net you...

Nothing to do with availability. These are AAnytime awards.

The weekly/monthly chart on AA.com is unfortunately wrong. The chart in the wiki of this thread is right. Dec. 2 looks to be a "Tier 2"...

Well, there is at least one other (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Queen_Mary_2) little one scuttling about somewhere, though to be fair, I don't think it actually carries a lot of post.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Jace, but you're probably not going to make Platinum with the trip you have already scheduled.

You've got to be a bit more specific about your budget. Is anything <$1000 and <8/mile acceptable? If so, it would be a no-brainer for me. Take a combination of AA and LA (routing through JFK on...

Ooh, I wouldn't count on it at all. Seattle is only 1 of 12 destinations that American serves by 757 from Kennedy, and some of the other flights have similar departure times. Planes rarely arrive...

Sorry about downgrades. I know it's going to be a tougher travel year for a whole lot of us. The good news, though, is that with AA's soft landing policy, even were you not to fly a single mile...

Sorry for the above comment, jspear. As you note, calling CX to determine whether you can use AAdvantage miles on any routing, even an all-CX one, would be ridiculous.

The quote you mention is dead wrong. Citi would be thrilled if everyone decided to "get back" at them by massively using their cards in a responsible way.

Get the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express card. Cheaper annual fee (just $45), more miles (trade 20,000 SPG points for 25,000 AAdvantage miles), and isn't issued by Citi.

Bit more on the 777 front, actually, 47 (http://www.aa.com/content/amrcorp/corporateInformation/facts/fleet.jhtml) in total. But yes, you'd have to look really hard to find an AA Mad Dog with IFE.
