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."

Thanks. But a while ago i had that with a US airways flight booked with Avios and US check in agent said there was absolutely no way for them to change the name (one letter) why do you think this will not be a problem?

PS. it is for an international flight.
This is what I was told many times here on the forums, perhaps any pro could chime in about it?

I just put down with United, they said they added a note about the misspelled name. and that note will be on the ticket so it should not be a problem.

You should be fine, especially if it's notated.

That check-in guy was an A$$. Most are not. At least when it comes to these things.

Does Aeroplan charge to upgrade the cabin on an award?

Assume LAX-JFK-FRA, where the first leg is in UA Y and second leg is on LH F, and want to upgrade to UA J.

Any change is $90 CAD.

if you are holding a J/F ticket with some segments in Y there is no charge to change if the flight opened up in higher cabin.

Get back to me when you get Aeroplan to hold a ticket.
Not saying it's impossible, but it's very very difficult.

That's my exact scenario:

Ticketed or held?
If it's ticketed, they will charge.
