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."

From my limited knowledge (just clicking around lately) Its seems to only be available when saver award is available on united.

If thereís X availability then youíll see it on Aeroplan.

Iíve been seeing lots of X availability for Copa and Avianca flights that I donít see on UA or TK (even on the phone).
Is that a real thing or do I just need to HUCA on TK?

Seems like AC is having a phantom flight moment. Had same issues on other partner flights today.

I thought so too at first, but made a booking and went through.

Was it ticketed (with a 13 digit ticket number)?

Yes, though disappeared shortly afterwards but it may have just sold out.

A great sweet spot is from Florida (MCO, TPA, FLL, & MIA) to Central America. Just 10K in Y or 20K in J.
Iíve also found that Columbia is in a different zone and costs 20K in Y, but I see many flights to PTY connecting in Colombia for 10K ;)
They also charged me 5K for a lap infant. Is that something new?

In general does Aeroplan show a lot of phantom? Im finding United availability etc, that is not showing on United itself and more...

Only way to verify is to call?

Do points transfers from Chase/Amex reset the Aeroplan expiration clock?

Definitely.
Iíve seen many phantoms that are unbookable, though I was able to get one ticketed. By the time you get a phone rep, itíll be gone regardless.

safe way I guess is to not transfer points unless available on United as well?

Trying to book a emirates first class ticket with aeroplan points but don't see an option of booking first class (showing Availability on emirates, but can't find a way to book first class on AC) any help?

P.s. I booked business and then tried to upgrade at emirates but didn't work since it's booked with another airline
