They raised the annual fee to $95. I wonder what will happen to people with the $85 fee... And does this mean you can open the new card while you have the old one active?

does this apply to secondary card holders, or only primary?
In order to understand recursion, you first need to understand recursion.

I found the answer: it's only for primary.
also, the flight needs to be booked today or later. it will not work for previously booked flights.

Read the T & C: For benefit to apply, at the time of booking, Citi® / AAdvantage® account must have been open at least 7 days and reservation must include the primary cardmember's American Airlines AAdvantage® number. This benefit is valid for travel booked and ticketed on or after April 2, 2012. If your credit card account is closed for any reason, this benefit will be cancelled. Eligible Citi® / AAdvantage® cardmembers may check one bag free of charge when traveling on American Airlines, American Eagle or the AmericanConnection® carrier to select domestic destinations. Up to four customers traveling with the eligible primary credit cardmember will also get their first checked bag free of charge if they are listed in the same reservation. Waiver does not apply to overweight or oversized bags. This benefit cannot be combined with any existing AAdvantage® elite program benefits, including any waiver of baggage charges. Please see AA.com for baggage weight and size restrictions. Additional terms, conditions and restrictions may apply. Applicable terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.

Does not explicitly address mileage tickets booked using other carriers (i.e. avios) Wonder if I will have a free bag to Toronto

Now I'll really start flying AA, especially with 10% off cards at costco.
But I just cancelled my AA cards, anyone know if it will work. My cancelled United card works, they just look at it and waive the fees,

I would assume Canada is considered domestic for this purpose, but I guess we'll see.
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.

What is interesting is that the new Citi Executive card now has fewer special benefits- Admirals Club , 10K EQM after spending 40K, double miles on AA purchases and no Forex fees.

Not worth the extra $350.00. I only have it as it will take me over 2 Mil and give me LT plat.
