Extension of AA Systemwide Upgrades
Hello Lucky and OMAAT Members: This concerns the question of whether AAdvantage has provided any EXP’s with “extensions” for Systemwide Upgrades that were for use (though unfortunately usually “un-usable”) within 2019. Within a number of blogs (most specifically here at wonderful OMAAT), it was mentioned that for AA/EXP’s who were unable to use their SWU’s, but who had requalified for 2020 (and had a sufficient Eagle rating) could call an AAdvantage Supervisor, and probably receive a 90-day extension to then find flights where the SWU’s would be usable.
While meeting all of the spec’s above, I called prior to the end of January, but was told that there was [U]never[/U] any such program available… and in fact my only option was to find and immediately purchase near-future flights where the SWU use was immediately confirmable (a total rarity anyway)! Yet as this was not possible at all, she very kindly promised to check, though there has been no positive response. And as I needed my earlier P & J bookings to requalify, by now it is evident that another year’s supply of SWU’s have sadly been lost again.
Thus my question for everybody is to ask whether others were successful in getting an actual extension (even if for only 90 days), so that any expiring SWU’s could still be used? Thank you to anyone who can help with an answer!
Hi, you may get better data searching through FlyerTalk, since there are a lot more Executive Platinum and Concierge Key active members (I believe).
