Resurrecting an old thread. The AA A321 seats in F are [email protected]#$% torture. The recline is such that it puts my weight rearward, resulting in a super uncomfortable position. Even fully knocked out I'll...

I'm in pretty much the same boat -- 66/176/38 (EQD/EQM/EQS), with a rolling 12 of 89/254/59. By the end of the month I'll add another 18/30/4.

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

This. Getting two Tiffany cut-crystal glasses and a bottle of Glenlivet 18 after a 280k EQM year still gets talked about in my house, and I don't even drink. Cost them $200.

It all depends on what time of day you arrive in BOS or LGA/JFK: given that a west coast connection is likely to arrive late-afternoon through mid-evening, you have slog down I-90/I-84 (ex-BOS) or...

I'm paid F, so I would add 6 trips a year in if this was the case. The same with ex-LAX. I'm going to B6 for those routes.

The biggest downside of my shift from DL 360 to AA is the quality of the full F product. I'm a tall person but will sacrifice a little legroom for a seat that is fundamentally more comfortable. I...

Interesting, I thought I was traveling to hell every time I booked a flight into ORD.

At least for BOS-LHR we have a bunch of options with BA. I've taken a shine to the 0730 flight, plus seeing a A380 at BOS is cute.

WRT to getting to NYC, I've given up on every flight to and from...

I've had great service recently (in F) on IAD-LAX and LAX-BOS. The service (in F) BOS-ORD and back generally is OK. n=10 segments.

Absolutely concur as well. I only check in from time-to-time. When I was on DL and made 360 (almost entirely flying one route), I popped over to the DL forum and never came back. AA is where I...

A little quirk: it can take a few days for your status to post to the ticketing system vs. online/loyalty. I qualified for Platinum one week, status updated on aa.com, two days later, still Gold. I...

Depends. If the net margin captured in the 12.5k EQM >= the net margin captured on the F seat at full fare, the upgrade is a punt assuming you have little demand. If the net margin is less than the...

BOS-LAX has been very competitive for me all year. Although, I'm not sure I want to keep paying it as the F seats are absolute gAArbage for attempting to sleep.

I'm looking to collect the whole set: I've been GS on UA, 360 on DL, and now it looks like I have to switch to AA for my travel.

FWIW, I asked this very question to DL, this past month, w/r/t a match from United Global Services. It was Platinum or nothing, so I took the Platinum match.

As an example, I got a call four...
