TWA miles are still convertible to AA miles. The Nov. 30/2002 deadline is sometimes waived/ignored.

I was under the impression that any remaining TWA miles was automatically converted to AA miles after the deadline.

TWA Aviator miles are DOA, unfortunately.

WAY wrong, unfortunately. AA did give us Aviators well over a year's grace past the deadline to accomplish this (and it was incredibly simple - I transferred over 500,00 miles effortlessly; they were literally assimilated by AA.) A functioning Search would reveal the futility of believing TW miles are still worth more than the scrap of paper they are printed on.

While November 2001 was the official deadline, American continued honoring requests to transfer TWA miles on a goodwill basis. But, the official policy as issued by AAdvantage management on June 9, 2003:

As of June 30, 2003, AAdvantage will no longer accommodate mileage transfer requests.

And so it came to pass.
