It's been that way for as long as I can remember... definitely since April 2012.

Besides, how would the AA agent know what offer you signed up under?

ETA: Actually, it looks like only the PERSONAL cards changed as of April 2012...

The AA agent didn't allow it because the computer didn't do it automatically. Then Citi denied I was entitled to it.

You had a *business* card from *june 2012* ?

If not, I'm not sure how that helps.

Pretty clear here:

https://creditcards.citi.com/credit-cards/citibusiness-aadvantage-world-mastercard/award-program-information/

This seems to be specificly for the business card. Is there a similar link for the personal card. I have a friend who also had issue with them when checking in.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

IME if you have your [linked] AA number on the ticket, it works like a charm. Otherwise, good luck

So they're saying that the AJK's link is the "Citiaadvantage World" credit card, and mine is not the "World" one.
