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."

Aeroplan Master Thread

Try the words "manual request" or "request the space manually" and always say a supervisor told me that some fights this is what needs to be done to book it. 

It just took me today 5 HUCA to book an LH flight that wasn't showing.
I've used all these words, just not the supervisor, but I see it can take a few hucas. I'll keep on trying.
But, is it at all possible that the award is not available to AC at all, or if it's showing up on the other sites, it's always available to AC too ?

] Another 5 hucas, and even after they requested the flight manually with the flight numbers, it's not available. Are they not doing it right, or is it possible the space really isn't there ?!

Update: after much persistence, I finally got a manager to manually long sell the seat from Brussels, and she said the seats are waitlisted, and AC can't book it. Does that make sense, and it's time to give up ?!

UA can't book it or AC can't book it?

AC could not see the LH flights for me too, besides the SN.

Is there a difference in miles, whether I attach a RT  Europe-Tlv to a RT NYC-Europe, or book it separately ?

Together = 80k/165k
Europe 1 seperate = 60k/90k + 50k/75k
Europe 2 separate = 75k/105k + 50k/75k

Might be a good idea to book 90k RT to Warsaw, Zurich, Geneva, London & then book a RT ticket with $$ if its cheap Europe-TLV... If you can keep it to the Star alliance you can check the baggage right through.. There used to be agreements between airlines even if they werent in the same alliance but its getting very rare these days

That's not going to work, since I'm stopping in Vce on the way.
My problem is that I don't want to have to use the extra miles for J, when all I'm getting now in J is the Europe-TLV part, and not the long haul NYC-Europe. There is no more Y available on the flight I'll need RT Europe-TLV, so now I'm not sure if I should book separately, and save the miles, or book as one, and hope J opens up.

Is there anyway to set up on AC,  when booking RT J, where some segments are in Y, for those segments to be automatically changed to J, being that that's what you paid for, or do I have to keep on checking, and call AC to change it ?

1) Till when can I change my AC itinerary, is it up till 24 hours before the flight, or anytime ?
2) if I'm originally booked on a flight that charges YQ, and change to one that doesn't have, I'll get refunded the difference, correct ?
3) Can I switch from a flight with a connection, to a direct one ?
