my bad ... how could I have forgotten the utter incompetence of AA's IT bozos?

I think the agent was just sloppy... this same thing has happened to me a number of times, and even for Y->J when EF showed C2 or more.

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:

Darn! I wish I'd checked this thread earlier this month. I'll be in TRS on 20-Mar, and could have extended trip to Tirana (a new country for me!) Now it's too late to change my upgraded to AA J...

You're not the only one!

Mrs BG3 and I were traveling SJC-LAX-AKL on Dec.4, 2019. Both of us were already upgraded to J both directions! (using BE BXP3s one way, $+miles the other way).

At SJC, where we had to depart...

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%.

In early Dec.2018, I used 2 SWUs for LAX-AKL Y-J for Mrs.BG3 and me (confirmed at booking!), then 2 more Y-J on the return.
Ditto, in Feb. 2017, except 2 were confirmed at the gate. I consider...

AA LTP/OWS did not have to pay for exit row seats in J

I booked a trip on the BA website, SFO-LHR-ACC r/t, and the site did not charge me for any of the 4 seat assignments. In theory, I should have been charged for the row 62 seat on the upper deck. I...

Our flight from PRG-PHL was changed the other way, i.e. 763 -> 332. Frankly, I prefer the 763, but then I've mostly been in J, not Y or PE.

issue with married segments & EF

Recently, I booked to J save award tickets for SFO-EDI via PHL in September. However, as often seems the case these days, there was no U availability SFO-PHL nonstop. So I had to accept SFO-ORD (U),...

looks the same as AA 's J B/E Super Diamond seat

The door that BA is adding is really excellent and hopefully the doors will open and close easier than the very sticky up/down windows in the present day CW seats.

Sfo-lhr 1/24/2019

SFO-LHR CW to F 1/24/2019 BA offered $859 at checkin counter, which I declined, as I have 62K, one of the best seats in Biz.

no KTN entry in profile

After reading this thread, I logged into BA's site to edit my profile but found no place to enter my KTN. If I call BA will they make this a permanent addition to my profile?

I agree with cedric. MCE and Y are good on the 763, and I really like the window seats in J. (except for the quirky tray table mechanism). The J seat is definitely better than the 330 J seat IMHO.

Notice that there is no mention of the 10% rebate for award tickets. That was one of the main benefits of the card .... until now.
