What are Avios good for these days? I got this card years ago when they were useful for domestic AA flights and Air Berlin flights to Israel. Now it's virtually impossible to get AA flights (at least on the routes I'm interested in), and Air Berlin is in airline heaven. So is there any point in getting this or the Iberia or Aer Lingus versions?

The companion certificate is not a real deal with the taxes they charge, I used it once one way only, have had the card for several years, when the next AF hits. ill close it.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

If 24 months have passed since receiving the bonus, yes.

Does it make a difference when card was closed

you should leave some buffer time but itís 24 months from when you got the bonus NOT 24 months from when you closed the card

Can this card be product changed to a no AF card?
If yes, will Chase keep the original open date? (Asking for average age of account purposes)
