I’m flying on chol hamoed.
Thanks

C

Is thins only for actual AA flights?
Or can this be used to book an ElAl flight through AA miles?

K Harris

Tis is great! But do u think they might give some price breaks going into the summer as well(I have a group of 7 coming from PHL-SAN in June). Do u think that fares will drop slightly during the summer w/ more promos despite the economy(which definitely includes gas).

Dantown Bochur

Thanks, Dan! We’ll be using this promo to earn double elite on our flight from Newark to Kauai that cost us under $400 thanks to you. Does the giving ever end?

Eli

Dan, Can you explain what the difference is between regular miles and Elite Qualification Miles when it comes to AA? I thought that every mile – even credit card earned miles (up to a limit) count towards elite status. Is that wrong?

levi

Eli,
I belive that EQM’s go tward your elite status and other miles go twards the million mile program which does give you status (correct me if i’m wrong)

Dan, Do you think that Continental will come out with a promotion like this?

Dan/Ctownbochur

Avid Reader:
Unfortunately that benefit has ended.

C:
It’s only valid when flying on AA metal.

K Harris:
Airfares for the summer are still high. Whether it stays that way all depends on whther people are paying the high prices…

Dantown Bochur:
Sweet! What’s your routing, will you get status just from the 1 RT?

Eli :
EQM’s count towards annual elite status and can only be earned by flying.
All miles currently count towards million miler status, but that requires 1M miles for lifetime gold and 2M for lifetime plat and you can’t get exec plat via million miler at all…

levi:
If anything CO is suffering from too many elites. I’d be shocked if they match this promo.

e

these “8 international upgrades that can be used for anyone” are they also exclusively aa or other affiliated airlines?

Mayer

Dan,

I would like to close one of my starwood accounts and transfer the credit line to my starwood business CC, any info on how to go about it?

C

Mayer- You can transfer balances easily on AMEXs website.
Then close the account.

anonymous

does american give the actual mileage flown for the cheapest economy tickets also or do they have some weird system like ba? when they double it would they double just that percentage or the actual miles?

e

Mayer: I was just speaking to a Amex rep about your exact sitch he told me you can transfer within Amex so just give them a call

Will one Delta Bus card be good enough for all SkyAlliance partners/would it be best to have a seperate card for each. If my prime is Delta but I want to use AA/CO as well,what should I do?
