Just called AA and they said on the screen message that AA flights are no longer bookable on orbitz...
A quick search shows the US airways flights are still bookable, but aa does not show up at all...
Not good news IMHO...

Priceline has longer free cancellation anyway.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Curiousity - does having the Exec Plat CC get you Exec Plat status? Or is that something different?

Repost from literally two comments above you.
Thx, I saw that, but I figure that Gary usually gives a top notch analysis.

That's what I figured. Well, now I see that Dan has lifetime Plat status, but not Exec Plat. I'm surprise. ;)
