I think that's a very good way of looking at it, a pertinent way to ask "what's this worth to me". Personally, until I'm getting 2x miles I don't think it really matters. GLD is just a nicety,...

Yep, you need a wireless bridge. My my first thought was also an airport express: http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/

I've certainly had a conversation in which I was prompted to say I would use a local GSA to ticket. But the key point seems to be just this: AA have an easy way for you to set up a validated xONEx...

I've read that the CX agents are very organised and efficient, so certainly if you're looking for an airport turn-around on a pre-issued ticket then that makes complete sense. But there is an AA GSA...
