Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

$297 fare to Paris
« Reply #7757 on: March 02, 2017, 09:31:27 PM »
Hi all,

When I search now, I don't see that fare anymore. Does it mean it's gone? I was really looking forward to booking for 3 persons.

Thanks in advance

Any way to create a link that always takes you to the most recent post in a thread?
There is a setting to see threads sorted with newest on top. When you then click the thread title, it takes you to the first post, which is the newest.
Profile-look and layout.

I think OP wanted only for a specific thread, which in that case doesn't work, because it applies for all threads

Interesting but wow is it disconcerting. I suppose if you are used to it, it could work for some.

When you have a list of topics that you pulled up lets say by clicking "Show unread posts since last visit."  Look all the way to the right of each listed thread.  There's a symbol that looks like a page with the left corner folded over that has an arrow on it.  Click that to go to the last post of the thread.

Should be automatic if your AA FFN is on your reservation.

FFN is on reservation and it is not linked. CC was applied for after the reservation was made if that matters.

Does the CC have the same FFN attached?

My AA miles account shows on CC account when I login. Tried calling and it is over a two hour call back.  >:(
