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."

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 ?
2) Correct.
3) Yes.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Thank you. I found the answer to question 1. It's up to 2 hours before the flight.

1) Officialy 2 hours before the flight. (YMMV, possibly upto a minute before the flight)
2) Yes
3) Yes, but you'll pay the change fee.

I'm new to this forum so I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place.

I noticed recently that domestic destinations such as i.e. EWR-DEN that was always FIXED MILEAGE of 12.5K miles is now 25K miles (for econonmy/coach)....making it twice as expensive as United. Am I looking in the wrong place or something? i never heard of Aeroplan devaluing their miles by that much.

Thanks.

Were you looking at a RT instead of OW?

My friend has a amex account that he needs to transfer out all the MR points. I was going to transfer all to aeroplan because he wanted to use them on star alliance NYC to western Europe and aeroplan was the best option for business. Now with this devaluation. What is my best option to transfer the amex point to ?

So this is my aeroplan nightmare.
Was looking for JFK-BUD on 3/26. AC showed 1 seat in J JFK-WAW-BUD. Searched for the second seat and the itinerary changed from J on the WAW-BUD leg to Y for both passengers. I booked the first one knowing there were 2 J seats on the JFK-WAW long haul. I went back to book the second on with the Y short-haul seat and i wasnt able to book at all. PUTPAC twice, they informed me its phantom availability. Went to UA and booked the exact same second seat JFK-WAW in J and WAW-BUD in Y.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

SQ has much better change/cancellation fees.

Within 21 days it will be $180 and SQ only $20
(And SQ is very good for TLV.)

As of dec 15, Aeroplan is devaluing his points on some destinations by 20%. That's bad news.
From the USA to BRU, was always 90k points + less then 50$ tax RT, from dec it will cost 110k points a RT
