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."

If a flight is only available in Y can I pay the Y price and if J open us change it to the J price?
Or even better pay the J price for Y and get upgraded to J when it open up? (In other words does Plan B work here?)
You can upgrade if it opens with a change fee IIRC and no Plan B available here.

LO issues again? See availability on UA and SQ, but its not online and they cant see it.

Update: Per rep and internal notes, no LO bookings available, again. Been "inhibited" since April 20. Guess I got lucky in the March to early April window.

plan B works, but 1 of the segments need to be in J, in order to pay J.

It's not quite Plan B what AC does, since if it doesn't open, you don't get any refund (as the rest of your ticket is J).

Not really worth it, since if it doesn't open in J, he'll have paid the extra miles for nothing.

Time Sensitive. Last names only need to match for MR to AC transfer?

Which means there's no points availability only revenue

I and my wife got emails that our Aeroplan miles are about to expire. Any ideas?

1. Transfer a minimal # of points from Amex or SPG to keep all your points from expiring.

2. If you live in Canada, go to Esso and buy $3 of gas and swipe your Aeroplan card. IIRC they'll even take a # without a card, so if you have a friend in Canada who wants to buy gas and give you the points....

3. Buy something from the Aeroplan e-store. I think it works just like a cash back portal, and also takes 6-8 weeks for miles to be credited to your account (not sure how quickly option 2 posts).

4. If all else fails, sell your miles to a broker, provided that someone's willing to buy your miles close to expiry.
