Does anyone know if this is a new thing? I will be moving from AA to DL later this year due to a change in company travel policy. I would imagine this would have a huge impact on elite comp upgrades...

Good to hear that and glad you enjoyed the flight. Just a question, is DL selling upgrades during OLCI and/or at the counter/kiosk before all elites have cleared? Similar to what UA does where most...

I would like to know this as well. I have not heard anything to this end in months. I remember reading somewhere on this board that the hold up had to do with AA deciding whether or not to put AVOD...

I hope this thread has been helpful to you! I dislike the labeling of bulkheads and exit rows as MCE partly because they used to just be "preferred" or whatever the term was, and could be booked by...

As I had said, I am happy with AA, and while they have a number of things they could improve upon, they have never wronged me and I have a lot of miles with them. That said, I have no choice here, AA...

Thanks, that is key. I avoid the things like the plague, even going as far as driving 3 hours vs. half-hour to get mainline or a larger RJ. Also nice to hear that many of the former DC9 routes have...

Thanks for the reply. Good info on the Tango fares, I would not have known that nor would I have known that mileage earnings were based upon the operating carrier's fare class and not that of the...

Leaving AA for UA

Hi all. I posted over in the DL forum to compare my previous experience with DL with the way things are currently and what to expect switching from AA.

My company's travel policy and preferred...

Good tip, thanks!



Home airports are TPA and SRQ, both have mainline on DL (SRQ is Eagle only on AA). When I flew DL years ago I most often connected in DTW and ATL although I would book via...

Thanks all for the quick replies. Good to know that "shortly after booking" really means what it says. On AA EXPs can get upgraded up to 100 hours in advance, however, 99% of the time when one...

Potential move back to DL from AA

Hi all. My company's travel policy and preferred vendors will change beginning 15 March and they have dropped AA and WN as preferred vendors and added B6 (AC, DL and UA continue to be preferred). So...

Just the past Friday, I had an AAgent at TPA go out of her way to retrieve an item I left on-board and did not realize until after I had gotten to my car. She did an amazing job at tracking down the...

Thanks. I wonder why the EXP desk would insist on 4 segments each year. I thought that was a bit odd. With current bookings, I will at least have Gold all of next year. If AA is cheaper i can still...

Leaving AA, mileage expiration and e500s

While not the shortest and it may have been US Express, I flew PHL-DCA back in 2014. We had to hold after taxing in PHL, the pilot told us we had been cleared to leave PHL but had to receive landing...

Another EXP here, I have been around 45-50% on upgrades this year. I agree that this is highly dependent on times and routes. TPA-CLT and CLT-TPA for example, I am 100% (cleared my last CLT-TPA...

Same here, in the case given by the OP, I would have to buy the more expensive coach ticket and hope for the upgrade. Now, I doubt this example is the reason upgrades aren't clearing as very few buy...

Thanks, not a bad idea. It would be nice if AA would make this available to us though. Does anyone know if UA or DL showed PQD/MQD for the last year prior to going rev based?

Does anyone know if we will be able to see our 2016 EQD? I will end the year around 150 EQS, but am concerned about EQD as 12k seems like a lot (perhaps it isnt, I really have no clue what I spend...

Wouldn't a CK also bump out an EXP regardless of time of request? I was #1 on the list and upgraded as boarding began on IAH-DFW last Thursday. Toward the end of boarding, the FA comes over to me and...

You're lucky there was a snack to choose from. On my last few eagle flights, only the free snacks have been available. Yesterday, on PHL-YUL (50 seater Air Wisconsin) the FA said he only had pretzels...

Mine too, zeroed out. I also flew yesterday with a return this Thursday. I am guessing it has everything to do with the new mileage calculation.

I could see that happening, although it is a little disappointing. While I would love to see AVOD and power fleet wide, IMO, MCE is even more important, so this is still a plus in my book. From AA's...

I use the app and mobile boarding passes at TSA 2-4 times a week, never had a single problem. I agree that the UA app is much more robust in terms of features, but the AA app has always done what it...
