The AA Advantage Executive Platinum number with almost no waiting time has ended. Had to wait 16 minutes. Does anyone have the new good number?


According to Wiki in "Starwood Starpoints Transfer To Airline Miles Master Thread" Starwood > Aerplan transfers..."Aeroplan - Names don't need to match. - Usually takes about a day and half to 2 days to transfer."

Called to add infant to ZRH-EWR booking, was told that it'll be $100 + $17 tax, but they only charged me the $17, the infant is now showing up on aeroplan.com, but not on united.com, is there anything to worry, or was i lucky and infant will show up on united later?

Check if there is a ticket number (014xxxx) for the infant.

Not officially.
 If you get through before midnight, you might be able to get the agent to hold it for you overnight.

Why before midnight?

I have 2 OW F tickets for a LH flight within 21 days from Europe to USA. (62.5K points each)
I want to cancel the flight & get refunded.
I understand that ideally I would need to change to after 21 days then cancel & pay 2 x $90.
The problem is that LH does not release First seats that far out.
They tell me that if I change to a lower priced award, I lose the difference in points.
What are my options? Thanks in advance.

If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

Worked! Thanks so much! (thanks ta as well).
Found a FCO-ORD F in June on UA website. Called Aero to make change, then cancelled online for full refund minus 2 x $90.

Ok let me ask a more direct question.

A family member has 50,000 Aeroplan miles but claims he needs 75,000  for roundtrip YUL-KBP.
Assuming his facts are true, how do you suggest he go about using his points for that ticket?
