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."

For a specific date or route?

Yes. I see reports of issues similar to the ones Aeroplan had last year with Air China seen here

On a side note it also seems that CA international flights are still blocked on United as well.

Noticed that yesterday as well. Hopefully will get fixed soon.

With the deval taking effect December 15th, "can I/should I" do the following for my flight from VIE-FRA-JFK in mid January:

Can I book for my date today at 45k (due to only J being available for LH) and then pay the $90CAD and the additional 17.5k miles to upgrade to F when it opens closer to departure or will they charge me $90CAD and 25k miles as per the new award chart taking effect? If they are going to charge me the extra mileage as per the new award chart, I might as well wait until close in and save myself $90.

I have a similar situation with a ticket already booked, but may need to changed after dec 15. I would imagine they'll charge the new rate difference after Dec 15. I'd say wait close in.

if you make changes in the same cabin, then there is no additional miles, but if you change cabin, then you have to pay additional miles.

As long you don't mind waiting on hold for an hour until you get through to someone.
