AA ExecPlat wants to know about SWUs clearing on US Air to Europe?
I’m Exec Plat and was looking to use my swu’s for family of 4’s roundtrip from ORD to Europe this summer on US Air metal for the long leg. I know you talked about codeshares possibly messing with swu’s clearing and was hoping you can explain it to a laymen. I’m looking at a connection in PHL, where I could take an AA flight, but am not sure how that would effect the SWU clearing at time of booking? I want to make sure I book it properly for the upgrade to clear. Thanks
@ Douglas — Simply put, if you want your systemwide upgrades on US Airways to clear, then book through US Airways’ website. If you book through American’s website you’ll get a US Airways codeshare flight, and that won’t be eligible for an upgrade in advance. Hope that makes sense!
