If you're posting financial slide decks, you should know better what AS means by "generosity." They don't mean that they're glad people like you (and other FTers) are min-maxing their award charts....

Props to linking to an actual slide deck / financials, but I don't see how this proves your claim ... 17 says credit cards are profitable and frequent fliers spend more. 42 says capex down. How does...

I don't want extra time to pay (and if I did, AA sells it -- in the form of a hold). I want convenience and predicability -- aka immediately knowing if my purchase was successful. Somehow, basically...

Thank you for all the info on how AA's systems works. It certainly explains things more. Especially since, after a lengthy phone call with AA, I got some more data: Apparently, the CC was valid -- it...

Upon searching, it did not. No clue why not. I bought another ticket (award, paid the fees on card) from AA 2 days later, which posted fine. This was two weeks ago, so if there was an authorization...

AA reservation cancelled due to "failed payment"

I put an AA ticket on hold using AA.com. The next day, I paid for my ticket using a combination of gift card+credit card.

Two weeks later, I go to check on my reservation. It's marked as...

Do you have a budget? If not just buy the $12k business ticket on DL (or Virgin Atlantic) and you'll get exactly the MQM (and 2x the MQD) you need.

If cost is a factor Xiamen will also get you...

If AS denies credit, you can contact AA to have the credit remove. Send proof of this to AS, and they should give you the credit. This has worked for me in the past.

In that case, I would definitely avoid Emirates as it's angle-lie flats on the DXB-MNL leg. Qatar seems like your best bet, although one advantage of positioning to NYC (in addition to saving a few...
