Highly doubt it; that's not how AA's own "sticker" upgrades work and would seriously confuse the issue.

As I shared literally four posts prior, my experience at KOA last week is there are no cars in the lots--you will simply queue up waiting for ones to be returned. The good news is the airplanes...

Interesting arbitrage situation: an AS 75K can upgrade a companion for free, while an AA EXP/PP requires stickers. Will be interesting to see how that will work in practice--i.e., whether one can...

I can't comment on HNL, but on KOA they certainly won't have vehicles when you arrive--regardless of whether you have a reservation. You'll just queue up for the ones that get returned while you...

Oh, man, I *loved* those certs NW platinums used to get. I had about 100% success upgrading on AS and almost never actually had to surrender the cert ;) Of course, that was a different time, when...

As posted above, AC membership works. They do check same-day(?) BP, but I've had success with AA, AS, and UA since they reopened.

Sigh. I'm not sure why I'm arguing. You're right, married segment logic isn't a thing. Don't bother calling AA to find a competent agent to book it for you. That just leaves more inventory for...

Believe what you want, but Iíve had multiple SWUs cleared due to married segment logic when they werenít available on just the flight by itself. You are correct itís been this way for years, though.

To be clear, these are not "false positives", these are married connections. If you are using an instrument that works for multiple segments, you should be able to get it. For example, I recently...

Report what? AirSpace is open. It is no longer staffed by AA, and all indications on the ground are there are no plans to do so again. Access rules remain the same IME.

Sadly, that's not what it means at all :( The airspace attendants are just able to verify AC membership in their system.

For the benefit of those following the thread, construction is done--no sign of it last month. Also, the enforcement of the 48-inch rule is hit or miss in my experience. Indeed, there were kids who...

In what world is 20 segments VERY high? The longest AS routes are about 2.5K. Even if flown in F, that credits at 4375, so still requires 22 segments. I think most of us that earn even 75K on AS...
