Boy, do I have an American AAdvantage award redemption story on the way….

I’ve booked hundreds of awards in my lifetime, but this one takes the cake, and I don’t mean that in a good way. Stay tuned.

    So a fun update, had to cancel the MIA-IST & MCO-LHR portions of the trip (~ 1/3) but at least I'm getting a mileage refund.

    I also like the oneway award and you could actually redeem on Oneworld too and no starnet......

    @ Chris -- Ouch, very frustrating. I used to think the award desk at AA was good, but not anymore.

    @ Despina -- I sure can, but I don't feel the need to block some of my most loyal readers. Someone that comments within an hour of me posting must be a *very* loyal reader. :D

    @ Vagabond Jim -- Yeah, that's the plan this year. I say that every year, don't I? But I mean it this year!

    @Ripper3785, I was about to respond to @Super80, then I saw your entry. Thanks for the valuable advice. Lesson learned. :)

  5. Super80 Guest

    No, it's not, @Despina. Being able to freely express ideas is one of the benefits of living in a non-dictatorial society.

    The sycophants, apologists, and sheep will keep speaking and sucking up to a kid. Find lives, people.

    Maybe you should have chased EXP after all?

  7. Ripper3785 Guest

    don't feed the trolls!

  8. Despina Guest

    Hypothetical question here. Lucky, is it possible for you to block users from posting on your blog? Looking forward to hearing your story about AA.

    This should prove to be momentous and exhilirating! This occasion is so important, You'll probably remember this moment forever.

    I spent 45 min on the phone w/2 AA reps today trying to get a 6:40 layover/misconnect caused by IB fixed. After 15 the first agent, who couldn't understand a 14 segment ticket, said "hold one moment" and TRANSFERRED ME.

    2nd agent took 20 min to understand what I wanted (simple explination was offered, "Take MIA-MAD-IST on 3/30 and IST-MAD-SJU turns into IST-MAD-MIA-MCO") FINALLY told me their computer link to IB was down and that...

    What a joke.
