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."

Any idea if LO is completely unbookable or they have different inventory than UA? I called and asked about a date that UA shows availability and they said it's not available.

Theres some 6k Awards avlb from nyc-yyz in the next few months.

 But i did realize there's $50 in taxes, which UA doesn't charge. weird, never saw tax on a flight going into CAD.

You sure they're not operated by AC?

Yes it is indeed operated by AC.
 Was just curios to know why AC charges, while most carriers don't charge the heavy fees only on a return from Canada to the US.
 Didn't mean it's a united flight, meant that united and AC are interchangeable when booking an award, they both display each other's awards.
 With that being said, will search again for a UA operated flight on Aeroplan. It's either this 7.5K and around $55 taxes or a united 10/12.5K flight and work out the close in fee so only $5.60 in taxes. (Calculating the cost of flying from EWR which has gas and tolls to get there, might just make it worth flying from LGA/JFk and pay the taxes.)
 It stinks that BA/AA has 0 award avlbty, they used to be amazing for this, and now last minute awards they're down in the dumps(Even tried all the routes I pulled up via HC and searched for those dates and Airports, but nothing doing). So far AC and UA take the cake for last minutes..
      Unless SA(Saver Awards)are bookable with AC for a UA I see on UA?

UA saver awards (excluding expanded availability) are bookable on AC without YQ.

Call AC, pay $50 (or $75,$100, $125 depending the booking class) CAD +taxes.
AC is the cheapest for an infant.
You can cancel anytime the infant for a full refund.

I have a flight from LAX-SFO-LIS-TLV.
The SFO-LIS-TLV is on 6/25 departing 4 pm.
When I booked, I could only find LAX-SFO on 6/24 departing 11 pm.
Now, there are morning flights available on 6/25, which is much more convenient.
Is there any way to change without the fee?
There was a minor schedule change (by minutes) and they wouldn't do it for free.
Any ideas?
