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."

I see OZ flights on AC. Rep says they are not bookable for some reason. They don't show on UA or ANA.
Is this phantom? Blackout dates?
UA is now blocking OZ availability, period. ANA is blocking it because OZ officially has blackout dates and you're probably looking on the blackout dates. But it seems that OZ does not enforce the blackout dates so Aeroplan is displaying them. Who gave you an error? ANA or AC?

AC gives the error. UA wasn't able to see it over the phone either.
When are the blackout dates?
I am looking at May 17-18 SFO-PNH.

I don't think blocking means what you think it means. 

US used to "block" LH F.

LM currently "blocks" LH F.

American isn't blocking CX F. Nor is Delta blocking TN J.

Correct. I should of used the word "not displaying". They might be blocking it as well, but I never checked that. However, the story with OZ is still unclear, it seems from Aeroplan that they don't block the availability on the blackout dates. So they just don't let you confirmed a ressy on that dates? And if they do release availability, why doesn't UA see them? (Unless UA ideed blockes OZ availability)

When looking on united I have 6 business seats available from lga to tlv with a stop in yyz.
Though when I look it up on aeroplan I get hit with $500 a seat in fees, and I only get it with 2 stops!
Is there an explanation?
Am I missing something?

Air Canada charges fuel surcharges on their own flight.
