Unfortunately the rules change every few years, which is why you are seeing conflicting information. The AA.com website isn't too helpful either at the moment. Last I knew the "official" policy was...

Flew quite often SAN-STL on TWA back in the 80s. The morning flight was an L-1011. My main recollection was the tiny overhead bins that barely fit a briefcase, and the mechanized cabinets for hanging...

I asked this question yesterday when speaking with a CK agent and was told "no". I'm at 265K EQM and $55K EQD for the year, Helix 4. YMMV.
