Only AA (not OW) and only for domestic flights. Though they do get 8 VIP upgrades which are valid on international flights.

Off topic: Does AA give 500 mile upgrades on award tickets?

Does the US Air card get free bag on AA?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

I wonder if he means the invitation only version of the card with $195 AF. That version lets you qualify for status through spend. Supposedly it will be cumulative with AA card from citi once it becomes an AA card.

Just booked a LAX-TLV on Us Airways with AA on the phone for 67.5k. Neither airline was offering those flights on their website, (US Airways doesn't allow one way online) US wanted 125k for it.

Just called back to get KSML's. AA couldn't do it. Transferred me to USAirways. they don;t make meal requests for the domestic leg according to the agent. Is that correct? never had that before for a business class flight a month in advance.

AA wasn't showing the flights online?
