At least we'll have two months notice... Anything besides for SPG transfer to AA at a reasonable (or semi-reasonable) rate?
SPG won't transfer to AA with a name mismatch, so even those will be at a huge premium I'd imagine.

Diners. But good luck finding those...
Hard to come by, although I can confirm that they do transfer to anyone's AA account.

Wouldn't an address change, 30 day wait, and then transfer work?

But Diners are 1:1, right?

Any idea what a Diners point is worth compared to MR and SPG?

It might, it might not.  Either way big hassle for buyer=price premium.

They are 1:1.  There was a 25% bonus last fall for AA transfers.

Very few people have a diners card, so there's not much of a market for them.
I do love their retention bonuses though!

What does lifetime gold get you? Does it apply to AA metal only? Can it be status matched?

i get l4 swu's(international address) plus free bags plus better seating.
but is it worth to part with so many spg points for it?

Only with the same address and not to new accounts.

Any idea how long an account must be open for until being considered "old"?

I have 700K aadvantage and the necessary 300K spg on hand to get to lifetime gold but I cant decide if I should go for it or not as the 700K aa are more than  enough considering that all I want them for is to use on elal and elal has only once had availability from jfk or ewr to tlv the 20+ times that i have checked (each time with flexible dates of 7 days =/- )

Do you ever fly AA that the benefits (luggage, standby, bonus miles, etc) will help you?

Wow, availability is that bad to use AA miles on ElAl from NYC? From LAX I have never had that much trouble when getting tickets for myself or others (granted its not 100%, but it never really is with mileage redemptions)

I would transfer the SPG to AA in that case.
