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."

Apologies for the n00b question, never used aeroplan before. If I try to book a flight from LGA - YYZ in a week from now, the price is 7.5k + $70.00 but if I pick a date a month from now its 10.5k + $7.10. Are they cbarging closein fees? I thought AC doesnt.
aeroplan has different fees based on if its an air Canada flight or a united flight

Thanks. Starting to get the picture now. On FT it explains the carrier surcharge scam and that they charge bogus taxes for AC metal. Not worth booking with miles at all

The one with nominal taxes and higher points redemption is a market fare that is based on cost of cash ticket

Just call ASAP and say you did not use , they'll investigate and see who flew with your miles and restore the miles in your account, it is easy to see the passenger's name and information.

Have you sold any big tickets out of your account recently / at all? Their fraud department team will likely review your entire account history, so just be prepared for questions.

Found LO availability in J when I searched on UA. Tried to replicate on AC and couldnt. So I though it may be phantom. Called AC to confirm my suspicions and was told by a supervisor that AC is "inhibited" from booking LO awards.

Anything to do with http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=85505.msg1831389#msg1831389 ?

Is this a DoT reportable issue?

The link you posted to could be reported, sure.

What would your reasoning be for reporting them here?

Of course that was reportable. I'm talking about Stealth Devaluation without notice. Not being able to book partners at all when their os availability.
