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."

He said:He wants to return to his departure city, so no trail flight afterwards....

Uhm, he's asking if he can do NYC-XXX-NYC // NYC-HNL

Answer is yes.

I thought once you get back to your departing city, the itinerary is over. I guess I'm wrong.

Please ccmiw, as long as I stop in a city less then 24hrs then that's considered a connection and not a stop over, Example NYC- XXX ( less then 24hrs ) - TLV - open jaw XXX-NYC and then I can still tack on HNL, and NYC will be my stopover ?

<24 hours = layover, not stopover.

No, you could not do what you're suggesting: NYC-XXX-TLV // XXX-NYC // NYC-HNL

That's 2 OJs.

Can one change from Y to J, and just pay diff. In miles, as long as a part of the itinerary was already booked in J ?

If part of the itinerary is in J why would there be a difference in miles?

if one leg is in J, and the other in Y, they charge the same amount of miles , just like if they are both in J ?

not sure what you mean & could be you mean the same thing what im about to write, but a mixed award of Y & J is priced out as fully J.

And if availability opens in J do you get it? Ive been looking at many mixed award Y & J NYC-BUD in March. Know its early but can i lock up the available seats now and if J opens grab those seats somehow?
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Might be a $150 or so change fee involved. Not 100% certain.. But Swiss opens up late to partners & Lot is a rare find to begin with.. Your best bet is 70k UA with no YQ. Or 50k AA via TXL or DUS with AB
This isnt the right thread though to discuss this

If J opens on the same flight that you are booked in, there is no fee change.

FTR, their change fee is $90 (not saying you'll be charged).
