FYI - for those in USA and 55+, you can get $200 off the top of Biz Class fares, then also take the 10% card discount if you are an AARP member. It's only ~$16 to join, so a very good ROI.

I suspect you are right about the route returning. And we probably won't be able to get to Europe in the first place, i.e. from SFO to BCN on May 20 via Iberia.

Will AA issue a Travel Advisory (refunds/rebook) for flights to/from Milan or Venice?

On 772s I always make sure to choose a seat that will be rear-facing if it's one with the Zodiac seats. This is because I find the rear-facing seats have more space for your stuff. So for example,...

nothing working

as of 13:20 PST today, I can get virtually nothing working on the aa.com website, at least when searching for award flights.
It would appear that the ITaapocaalypse has already happened. :rolleyes:

buy up to EXP for $3500

The amount is not too surprising, I'm at 91K EQM & $11.6K EQD, so that $ amount is almost exactly the difference to the $15K EQD requirement. What's interesting is that the 9K missing EQMs don't...

My org has had plenty of non-posting flights, although none the past 2 years. I think the newer system of 3-4 day posting works better (instead of the old 20th of the month posting method).

I've gotten buyups before, but only did it once

One year I was 85K EQM and $8K EQD, and had just become PPro, when the next day I got a buyup for $2500, which I paid for. Used the 4 SWUs for SFO-LAX-AKL, so good value I thought. Of course, EXP...

I don't think any commercial aircraft can compare with the 747 upper deck for ordinary folks ..... maybe the very front of the A380 upper deck on ME carriers in F for the 1%.
