I believe the answer is no. Can she upfare one of her booked segments to First and get 2x EQM for it?

You said #7 (https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=7) was called later than the first 6. So a 7th seat (the exit row) opened up after you had already been assigned a...

Oh I see, I misread it. I thought you wanted the 11E person to switch. Sounds reasonable.

11E is a better seat than 11C. Since there's no aisle on your right, you can stick your elbows there without being hit by the cart or passing passengers, as it happens with 11C. Also, the person to...

This is an improvement in my view. I'd rather not have the dessert cart going down the aisle as I'm trying to sleep. This is a 9 hour overnight flight. The main reason to be in J (IMHO) is for the...

It's just safe to declare it. I've declared checks for over $10k before that CBP told me I didn't need to declare, but that's ok.

It's not against the law to bring more than $10k, as long as the...

I received the upgrade to silver a few months ago. Less than a year after signing up for the red card.

I have no idea how AA handled it. OP says a flight attendant put away the offending piece of plastic, hopefully the FA also noted it so that it can be fixed at some point in the future.

The plane was at an outstation that might not have as many people around to fix things. This is clearly one the most minor issues possibly encountered. Next up, tonight, the plane will head to GRU...

You're right. Your flight should have been delayed or cancelled so that mechanics could fix the small panel that became unglued, and which had zero impact on your use of the seat.

It will post on the 8th of the month after you reach the threshold (so January 8th), but backdated to the date when you got it. So it'll count for 2019.

There are some FAs who are clearly going through the motions, but even they have never had an issue or refused when I asked for a double. More often than not though, there are FAs who are super...

The 772s that AA uses for JFK-EZE are the same they use for MIA-EZE. And MIA-GRU and JFK-GRU are flying with the 77W that has the F flagship suite.

I don't know the answer to your question (Barclay's reimbursing for Gogo purchases before the flight), but if I were you I would wait until you are on the plane unless you are 100% sure that the...

Hyperbole much? As best I can tell, LATAM has 8 daily flights into Miami: 2 GRU, 2 SCL, 2 LIM, 1 FOR, 1 EZE. The MIA hub will be fine. Not saying this is not a loss to AA, and they'll have to...

I have a round-trip booked with the outbound in December, and the return in January. I know the total EQD I'll get, but how do I know how much of it will be in 2019 and how much will be in 2020?

There's plenty of paid J business on the BOS-LAX route, and good yields if the plane has flat bed. B6 and UA are not having a problem with it. The issue is that there isn't the paid F (three class)...

What happened to the A321T between Boston and LAX? Can't seem to find it for any flights this month. It started in April and was a nice option:

That's a shortish overnight flight. I would eat in the Flagship lounge, and try to go to sleep as soon as possible on the plane to get somewhere close to 6 or 7 hours of shuteye.

Whether something is worth a number of $$ depends on what value those $$ have to you. Is Main Cabin Extra better than regular economy? Absolutely, you get more legroom, and your knees are not against...

I think the issue for AA is the lack of a 2-class narrowbody where J is full-flat (edit: other than the 752s that are used elsewhere). The F cabin in the A321T is under-utilized in BOS-LAX, but the...

If I upgrade from the Red to the Silver, does the counter for EQD start back at zero, or does it count what I've already spent in 2019? I'm about to hit the $25k for 3k EQD (since I got this card in...
