Has anyone actually been able to use this for free bags etc.? I flew tonight and I did not get free bags
wait till Sep 27

yup, in la now and got free bags. (didn't use my citi to book the tickets)
with AA it dosent make a difference which CC you booked your ticket with, as long as you have one it is automatically linked to your AAdvantage account.

(While continuing to take this thread OT)

When booking BA tickets with Avios, on the payment page, the third line "Is the payment card holder travelling on this booking?" select No.

Then, once ticketed, go to AA.com>Plan Travel>My Trips>Find Reservation (use flight #, date and departure city) then add your advantage number to that reservation.

When doing it this way I haven't had a problem with AA not recognizing my status and I assume it would be the same for free bags from Citi AA cc.

Would that be a flag to the BA account?

Quick question. If I have lifetime gold status (from having a million miles) and I use Avios miles for an AA ticket, will I get my privileges? I don't believe it's dependent on a credit card

Why not? You just need to add you AAdvantage number.
