Hi all,

I just tried to transfer Marriott Bonvoy points to Multiplus, and received an error message saying that my account number isn't valid, even though it is in fact valid. Does anyone have...

Thanks, that's helpful. So if you're flying, say, GRU-LHR in WT+ during peak season, you could upgrade that to CW for 30K Avios without much cash impact. That's...pretty specific.

Wow. I'm new to Executive Club after 7 years of loyalty to AA. Is using Avios to upgrade from WT+ to CW pretty much always a bad idea then? Are Avios good for anything besides redeeming awards on...

Taxes on Avios upgrades

Hi all,

I just booked a seat in WT+ from ATL-LHR, and called BA to ask about upgrading to CW with Avios. The agent said it would cost 25,000 Avios, plus a further $353 in additional taxes. I...

I've been PLT every year since 2011. Have done much less flying on AA this year than usual, so I only have like 14,000 EQM. Just got offered GLD for $649 and PLT for $1,299. In the past, PLT was a...

Do any credit cards transfer points to Vueling?

There's a flight I want to book that isn't available with Iberia Avios but can be booked with 7,500 Vueling Puntos. Are there any credit cards I could sign up for to acquire these miles? Or is...

Double-dipping on original routing credit

Hi all,

I had a two-segment itinerary booked on US Airways a few weeks back. The first flight was cancelled, and I was rebooked on a direct flight to my destination on AA from a different local...

My very first thought was to call BAEC. Unfortunately there was no Avios award availability on my dates. :(

In the past I haven't seen much of a correlation between time until booking and award availability--on AA, I can often get a TATL RT for 40,000 miles with about a week's notice--but maybe UA and AC...

Award travel to YQB on *A

Hi all,

I'm trying to get from NYC to YQB over July 4th weekend using miles (very patriotic, I know). Both UA and AC are requiring exorbitant amounts of miles on those dates. I have Starwood...

Thanks very much, FWAAA. You're exactly right that both the DFW and ORD routings were available, but the DFW one was much more expensive.

I don't see anything about routing changes on the page...

Mixed messages from AAgents re change of routing on standby

I'm a PLT heading to LAS today. I needed to fly via DFW to requalify for status next year: both JFK-LAS direct and LGA-ORD-LAS would have left me 122 EQM short (apparently the great circle route...

Thanks very much, JDiver. That definitively answers my question. I should be good to go with standby on LGA-DFW-LAS. Do you happen to know whether it's also accurate that one can fly standby on a...

End-of-year mileage padding for LAS-CUN?

On December 29th I need to fly from Las Vegas to Cancun. At that point I will have 47,115 EQM, meaning I'll need 2,885 to requalify for PLT. AA has plenty of affordable flights through PHX and DFW,...

Speculation: Which comes first, spend-based mileage or devaluation?

Hi all,

I'm trying to plan a mileage strategy for 2015. There are two things that the new combined AA-US could do to make their frequent flier program less valuable for travelers like me: switch...

That's helpful, but leaves me with a few questions. It says you can only upgrade one class of service "at a time"--so can I pay 0.5x the base Avios amount to upgrade from WT to WT+, and then pay...
