i find it hard to believe that its all in first class for 136,500 miles, can you think of a way that it would be possible?

First of all, even setting aside the domestic segments (and those between carribean/mex and USA), where there are no "first class" seats, the longer routes he's taking don't have first class either.

His longhauls, MIA-DUS and ORD-TXL, only have a business cabin.

Just got an escort through security from Flagship check-in. Skipped all the lines.

Wasn't expecting that.

And an even better experience Ex-LAX.

Private check-in, private guide, cut the queues.

Not sure AA F transcon + TSA Precheck can be beat domestically.

Is Flagship something achieved through status? Or simply by flying F?

What happened?

Have to know to ask for it, though. It's kind of hidden.

They didn't send me through Flagship and then funneled me into the regular security line through some additional door telling me that was the priority access.

Yep. See above. Gotta know to ask for it. Or just head all the way to the left in the priority portion of the terminal.
