Wow, sounds like they needed to find a way of getting rid of this revenue loss. I wonder how many more people have it.

According to the below article there were 25 AAirpass holders as of 2018, including Marc Cuban.

It's probably just a back of the envelope calculation based on the initial 28 clients, minus 3 known lawsuits

Doubt Cuban and Dell fly commercial. AA stayed out of bankruptcy by selling these. But airlines have a short memory when it comes to lifetime benefits.

Would anyone buy one if it was for sale now? And how much would you pay? $10,000,000?

@Dan wouldn’t buy it just because it’s AA

I bought a UA lifetime club pass and now they're messing us over with that.
Never pay for anything lifetime from an airline.

Status doesn't get you into clubs on domestic flights.
