Ditto. With rare exception the EXP desk has been not much better than typical non-elite CS reps with other airlines. Some are exceptional, some good, and some very bad. In contrast, the Delta...

The remaining PHX AA loyalists (myself included) will be tested with the US-HP merger. I hit 100K in 2 weeks and I will be asking for comp status and moving most flights for the remainder of the year...
