Without being too harsh on the OP, because he's perhaps not a native speaker or posting from a phone, this thread is a case of "you get what you give".

I'm not entirely sure, but don't they mention 'hand-held devices' already? My suggestion:

If you cannot hold and operate it with one hand: stow it.

The problem here is not one of lack of...

Wow, that is one frustrating story of mistaken identity.

The mistake at the check-in counter, although understandeable, is a big one.

Exactly the same reason why movie theaters have such a similar selection at the same time.

Plus guesting your wife in.

The question is: how much effort would the 45k miles require? If you've got travel to far-flung destinations planned anyway, I'd say, 'tough it out' with AA to hit that...

Being a bit giggly is not a safety issue.

Failing to dim the cabin lights, however, I also consider a safety issue, for several reasons.

The obvious:

Anyone else really having a tough time deciding what was up or down in that first picture?

Also, TV's broken? Seems like a plus to me. One thing I enjoy at lounges, is the quiet.

I'm a bit confused by the title.

You mean ATL-LHR, right? And you switch to a different plane and flight number there?

You can determine what class of plane it is by comparing seat maps.

Under 40 minutes?

Technically, sure. If you're the first of the plane, happen to stumble upon an immediately departing bus and luck out with security. You could perhaps, on the day that you ought...

Well, the difference in EQM isn't that big (300miles or so?). With my flights being a bunch of TATL I'm unlikely to qualify on segments for anything. And I did get to chill out in the lounge halfway...

Upgrading a domestic+international

A small frustration with AA's flight number strangeness. I've mentioned it before, but it deserves its own thread (if only for me to vent).
