The AA refund will be going to whatever CC Expedia, which handles UR bookings, used to pay. You then have to wait for Expedia to refund to Chase.

Public health people do it all the time for tuberculosis cases, which are far from uncommon in the US. It is very hard and labor intensive.

I was speculating to a cabin crew member on an LHR-ORD flight back in March that BA would keep flying some routes for the cargo. The response was that they wouldn't as there was no money in cargo :)

I called up to cancel a flight for a refund on March 31 and was told it might take 21 days. It was credited the next day.

A problem is that the only relatively hard numbers are the rates of those who need medical care and those who die. For both flu and Covid the presumably much larger number who get a mild case and...

Well Dr. Trump has been quoting those numbers to make Covid 19 seem not so bad but the scary thing is that is what happens with substantial herd immunity and we do not have that (yet) for the...

It's not easy to get the rules if you don't read them when booking. If you put them on hold then there is usually a link in the email. Otherwise you would need to call to find out. It could well be...

The main "upgrade" is the ability to choose seats at booking without a fee. As Karfa points out this includes exit rows on short haul. The algorithm for upgrades is a deep secret but it is thought to...

It may only be AARP as that is a discounted fare as opposed to a discounted payment. I think your second paragraph is correct.

My experience has been that you can't upgrade if you take the discounts. People have reported being able to upgrade if they pay the discounts back to BA. An Amex discount may book differently.

The picture caption says that "the board has been recreated at a themed hotel at the airport" but probably just as a static work of art.

OP didn't give us anything to go on but there is just a chance that the current Midwest waiver applies: https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/travel-alerts.jsp and it does cover today.

They had been saying second quarter on the Marriott web site so I suppose that someone believed it without checking. I'm sorry to hear that you were misled but I guess it's as well that you checked.

AA isn't very good about emailing even major changes and while they might have moved you back into PE there could have been no seats available with this change. I believe you can set EF to tell you.
