Why you posting this so late Dan?

Dan, Does “You can buy extra seats if you want to guarantee empty seats next to you by making the first name of the ticket EXTRASEAT with your last name. You’ll even get double your baggage allowance!” work with other airlines?

ZB

I paid for my mother’s ticket with my Citi AA Mastercard. Does that mean she will get free luggage or does it need to be in her name?

Ted

As usual, nothing useful out of Houston. Also as usual, I appreciate it, Dan

hershle

Cruz?

Eli

EXTRASEAT does not seem to work on AA. Makes you enter a birthday and flags it if it’s the same birthday as the passenger. Also flags two extra seats as an error because of the identical first name. Any workaround?
