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.

My AA miles account shows on CC account when I login. Tried calling and it is over a two hour call back.  >:(
Does your AA account say "AAdvantage Cardmember" under your FFN on the home screen when you log in?

Yes. Printed boarding pass and it says group 6. I thought you get a higher group number, no?
Also it didn't ask me about luggage.

For business class you two free bags and up to 70lbs?

You should be either group 4 or 5 depending on if you have a citi or barclay card. Yes biz will get two 70lb bags, no need for the CC.

Maybe the major storm is, but we are getting a few inches of lake effect snow here now.

With Citi Busn Select CC do you get free bag to PVR? They are telling me it is only domestic.
